Chronicling The Denying Denier Buhari’s Denials – Ena Ofugara


1978: First time huge amount went missing in the history of Nigeria. It went missing from Petroleum Ministry (no be today that office be racket). Buhari DENYING DENIED that he knew anything about it. The Senate President’s father then alive, Saraki, headed the commission to investigate. And 1983 coup happened. The rest is not history as it is denied.

1983: A coup takes place while good people were enjoying Christmas, Ileya, New year etc. One Sanni Abacha read the speech. One Muhamadu Buhari became head of state.  Later when coup was to go out of fashion, same Buhari that headed the coup said he was not a part of it. That he was summoned to head the coup after Babangida took it.

Hmmm. Why would Babangida call a man who is not part of the coup, was 2 years his junior (Yes oh. Them say Babangida senior bros Buhari) in age, nor was MNI and such other military additions, TO HEAD HIS COUP? Okay, Babangida does not like sugar? He risked his life for Buhari to enjoy abi? Yet Buhari has successfully denied his participation in the coup till date even though his speeches said he had to take the coup to save Nigeria. Okay na!

1995-1999: 87 Billion to PTF, 25 Billion unaccounted for.

Buhari as head of PTF and with his in-law from Daura, owner of APC-Consortium that all contracts were passed through. So much money went missing and again Buhari becomes again a DENYING DENIER.

Just that any office he holds huge moneys go missing and he becomes a DENYING DENIER


“Abacha did not steal a kobo” he says. Face expressionless. Eyes deep in its sockets. Not a single smile to show he is just joking. Serious like a heart attack, he DENIES on behalf of the Abachas.


While this may not be a denial per se, but the very brazenness of the lie…. GOD ABE GOOO!!


A former leader and NNPC boss and PTF boss that saw Abacha import fuel and sell to Nigerians at seriously subsidized rates said with unblinking eyes, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS CALLED SUBSIDY.

In a month of being president, he not only knows what subsidy is, but is paying more and also says “THERE IS NO GENUINE REASON TO STOP SUBSIDY. This denial must find its place of dishonour in the annals of economics and history of Nigeria. Sadly, he will deny he denied that he denied.

Now take all the promises, from the APC manifesto which has the free meal etc, to the 100 days document and covenant, to his relative he made INEC boss as she does the denying for him this time to EVERY SINGLE THING PUT OUT BY APC. The denying denier has denied them all.

I will be surprised if there are not some children in some corners that he has denied being a father of.

Against my better judgement, I ask that you all read about the TAAQIYA and KITMAN which literally is “There are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman. when you read it, you will understand why Buhari, as a true Muslim can feel so free to deny and lie.

I end the article with the greatest DENYING DENIER SONG of all time. IT WASN’T ME BY SHAGGY

“To be a true player you have to know how to play,
If she say a night, convince her say a day,
Never admit to a word when she say,
And if she claims and you tell her baby no way.

But she caught me on the counter (It wasn’t me),
[Album version:] Saw me bangin’ on the sofa (It wasn’t me),
[Clean version:] Saw me kissin’ on the sofa (It wasn’t me),
I even had her in the shower (It wasn’t me),
She even caught me on camera (It wasn’t me),

She saw the marks on my shoulder (It wasn’t me).
Heard the words that I told her (It wasn’t me).
Heard the scream get louder (It wasn’t me).
