How my dad got Buharified. #FeBuhari2019
A Thread. @Ayourb @ogunlesi @adebanqui @dmightyangel @ishakaa @legitngnews

In the 2015 elections I was the only pro Buhari in my family. My folks bought the PDP propaganda that Buhari would islamize Nigeria.
When I traveled to Ilorin to vote(2015), t'was hard convincing my folks. Luckily I won my mom and sister over with an interview of @aishambuhari in ThisDay Style ma. It convinced my mom and sister, but not my Dad. So, in 2015, only my Dad voted PDP/GEJ. #FeBuhari16
Fast forward to mid-December 2018. I visited home and Dad was gracious to pick me up. On the ride home I asked who he'd be voting come February 2019. His response surprised me. #FeBuhari16
'BUHARI OF COURSE!' Was his reply. I was delightfully shocked. He then went on to say he was so impressed with PMB's massive stride in infrastructure and the fight against corruption as well as the Social Investment Programs. #FeBuhari16
Said he was glad Buhari disappointed him cos it's the first time in a long time that he's been so hopeful about Nigeria again. He said PDP for 16 years made us believe progress was such a hard thing to come by but Buhari has changed all that. #FeBuhari16
I was just looking at my Dad saying to me the very things I had intended to say to convince him to vote PMB. Mind you neither I nor any member of my family has benefited directly from any government initiative under PMB, we just want to see our nation work! #FeBuhari16
Dad got Buharified without any campaign, he didn't need convincing, results on ground were enough. The PMB/PYO administration speak for itself. It's selling point is what it's achieved in 3.5 years of office. And it's on that basis we'll vote them back to power 2023. #FeBuhari16
There's no sincere and patriotic Nigerian who would want to send us back to the retrogressive, corruption ridden government of PDP. If you claim there’s been no significant progress under PMB/PYO then I have no word. There is no one blinder than he who just won’t see. #FeBuhari16
