Jamiu Abiola, son of MKO Abiola, has come under heavy attack from Nigerians for saying that President Muhammadu Buhari has same agenda as his father. Speaking in a recent interview to mark the Democracy Day, Jamiu had angered Nigerians when he said “My father and this President primarily have the same objective.” Some of Nigerians who expressed their anger on Twitter said if Jamiu’s words were true, it was all thanks to God his father never ruled the country. For some others, Jamiu is a disappointment to his father for making such assertion. Here are some reactions: @Angelsgo2, “Thank God your father never became president.” @Nj99625368, “If the agenda your father had was to make Nigeria insecure for its citizens, then no wonder Babangida did not allow him to have a taste of his triumph. We must be wasting our time trying to remember him today then.” @Sunnyx, “Am sure you are not real son of Abiola.” @lanreafo, “It’s either you didn’t know your father or 2015 and 2019 should have taken the same path as the post-June 12 cancellation. This is because Abacha had ‘better’ agenda that Buhari.” @dirisy, “All these things happening in Nigeria both the good and bad was your father’s agenda?” @de_mek_venture, “Are you telling us that your father has no vision?” @Ucheclive, “Your father’s ghost will hunt you , because of money, you betrayed your late father . Ode.” @Uyime_Ocean, “If so then thank God and Nigerians that his father was not allowed to execute such a porous and no direction agenda.” @Collinsohiri, “Hunger has made this one flip. Even your dad a great man will be disappointed at you.” @Oriariwolg, “A condom would have saved Abiola this huge embarrassment.” @Princeencore, “Thank God your father never became president.” @eluke, “Who knows if he detests his late father… some kids grew up that way.” @Walexlomo, “Maybe we should even thank God that your father didn’t become President.” @Adekoladamy, “Someone that worked with the person that jailed your father yet he could not convince his boss to release your dad and restore his mandate. Jamiu, do you think your dad will be proud of you?"
