Okupe Makes ‘U-turn’, Says I’ve Respect For Buhari’s Mandate

Once again the Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to President Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe has posted another massage on his Facebook page this time he said that he has respect for the mandate given to the President elect, General Mohammed Buhari.
Okupe massage on his official facebook page (Doyin Okupe) on Tuesday could be said to be a negation to what he said before the April Presidential election when he said that ‘’Buhari was not electable’’ and that ‘Buhari’s victory will not happen’. More so that Buhari has ‘no certificate’.
He went further to say that he was only doing his job when he was attacking the president-elect and that as a free born Nigerian he stand by all that he has said before and after the election.
Okupe also said that all he said was to promote the candidacy of President Jonathan his own candidate in the March 28 presidential election.
‘’For 4 years you guys abused and insulted Good luck Jonathan. Heavens did not fall.
All I did was to reiterate some of the issues I raised during the campaign and all he’ll is let loose. U can abuse and curse me as.u like I really don’t care because the more you do this the more you all expose yourselves as a bunch of childish, intemperant and intolerant.
Doyin Okupe
Pseudo politicians who enjoy criticising others but cannot bear to be criticised even superficially.
Trully your intemperate actions makes President Jonathan more than a hero. He silently without any reprisals took all your insults and assault on himself, his family and his government. You all should be ashamed of yourselves.
Once again for the avoidance of doubt, even if the whole country is against me on this, I DOYIN OKUPE being a bona fide free born citizen of this country, Nigeria, STAND by all I have said.
I have respect for the President elect, General Mohammed Buhari. I also respect his mandate but it was my duty to oppose and criticise him during the elections and I did that to the best of my ability. However it pleased God to give him victory and this we have accepted with equanimity. That is why He is a sovereign God.
But the next few years will be tough. We will regroup by the Grace. of God and we will form a formidable, credible, boisterous but reasonable and patriotic opposition.
”I have said it before and I am saying it again: We will be back”
