The 2015 Nigeria general elections have come and gone with so many celebrating their victory and others counting their loses. It is supposed to be a time when the losers congratulate the winners on their victory, while the winners extend a hand of fellowship to the losers as they move on towards the task of nation building. But it still seems that some people are yet to sheath their swords.
These 11 groups/notable personalities in the country are yet to felicitate with the president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari on his election victory. See why:
1. Professor Wole Soyinka
Nigeria’s only Nobel laureate may be a major critic of the Jonathan administration, especially the handling of the Chibok girls saga, but he is yet to congratulate the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, who he believes is Nigeria’s next Abacha.
2. Ernest Shonekan
The former head of the interim government of Nigeria in 1993. He is believed to be a supporter of the incumbent President Jonathan and has never missed any high government function since Jonathan became president.
3. Mike Adenuga
The chairman of telecommunication outfit Globacom and one of Nigeria’s richest and out-of-public private citizens. He is a friend of the Jonathan government and has not yet congratulated Buhari.
4. Alex Ekwueme
The former Nigerian vice president under Shehu Shagari and a prominent member of those who formed the PDP in 1998. He complained sometime ago of being marginalized in the mainstream PDP by the Jonathan administration before Jonathan visited his state for the PDP presidential campaign.
5. Shehu Shagari
The former president, Alhaji Shehu Shagari is an ardent supporter of the PDP from the OBJ days to Yar’Adua. He benefitted to the extent of making his son a minister and then a deputy governor in 2007-2015. There is so much respect between this two that most people believe that the latter is not happy about the former’s election loss.
