Why The Yorubas Place Their Trust in Buhari - Gen. Diya

President Muhammadu Buhari is a trustworthy person according to former Chief of General staff (Sani Abacha's tenure) and Lieutenant General Donaldson Oladipo Diya.

In an interview published by Vanguard, Diya, who was military governor of Ogun state during Buhari's military regime says the president has a great personality.

"The Yoruba generally trust Buhari because they knew him before now. Generally speaking, if you are acquainted with much of the story, the personality of Buhari is enough to sell.

"You look at the man and say, “yes, we can trust him.” When you look at his antecedents you will believe that he has done it before and that he will do it better this time.

"You see, it is not easy to have a man who has been a General Officer Commanding, a Minister of Petroleum, a Head of State and Chairman Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF), yet, as big as Nigeria is, nobody can really face him and point an accusing finger at him to say, You have done this or that.

"If somebody comes in, he has been this or that and as big as this country is, nobody can say this man has done something bad before, I think it is worthy of appreciation.

"I am a living witness, with the personality that Buhari has put up, it will be difficult for him to fail," he added.
