In an interview in 2011, Ovation publisher and former presidential aspirant Dele Momodu said Gen. Buhari wasn't qualified to be Nigeria's leader because he was a coup plotter. Below is what he said;
"For instance, tell me how General Muhammadu Buhari is better than me. Try and convince me how he is better than me. He forced his way into politics in 1983 through a coup. He was not a politician, he was a soldier. What is the role of a soldier? It is to protect and destroy. The man forced his way into politics. On account of that alone, he is disqualified. People cannot praise any man that commits treason against his fatherland".
Well, fast forward to 2015 and Mr Momodu has changed his mind. He says he was wrong in 2011.
