The Regime of General Muhammadu Buhari as then Head Of State has been criticised/accused among other things of being a fundamentalist and a tribalist.
Buhari who took over power NewsWireNGR recalls, sent the then vice president of the administration he overthrew, Alex Ekwueme, to jail; while he only placed the president, Shehu Shagari, under house arrest. An action that has gives rise to the argument by opposing analysts that he still is a tribalist.
President Jonathan was in Enugu to visit the 82-year-old Ekwueme on Friday before proceeding for presidential campaign rally which held in Enugu where Ekwueme also attended.
