General Muhammadu Buhari has dropped the bombshell on the reason he lost the elections in Igboland and parts of Nigeria where Igbos live, claiming it is because he was involved in the Nigerian Civil War.
The former dictator who spoke yesterday at the BBC Hausa services monitored in Kaduna said with regret that “the Igbos hate him because of what happened during the Biafra war”. “I have no regrets whatsoever and owe them no apology whatsoever. In fact, if the civil war recurs, I will kill more Igbos to save the country.”
He added that this was the reason they never bothered to vote for him anywhere in Nigeria.
It's a shame that a man who rules the whole country, and not just part of it, talks this way.
