I Have No Regrets For Abusing Buhari- Doyin Okupe

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe, on Monday said he has no regrets for attacking President-Elect, Muhammadu Buhari, during the electioneering period that culminated in the March 28 presidential election.

In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Mr. Okupe said he would continue to stand by his action during the period because he did so to promote his principal, President Goodluck Jonathan and put down his challenger, Mr. Buhari. “Yes I said Buhari was not electable,” the presidential spokesperson said. “I also said his victory will not happen. I said and still insist that Buhari has no WASC certificate. I said a lot of things to promote my candidate and many things to put his opponent down.

“I have no regrets for any of the statements I made. Lai Mohammed said worse. This is the nature of politics. For any one who cares to listen. We will be back. Period.”

Mr. Buhari, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, went on to win the election with over 15 million votes, beating Mr. Jonathan who garnered over 12 million votes.

Mr. Okupe said the number of votes earned by the President was proof that the election was competitive enough and that those abusing Mr. Jonathan should at least respect the 12 million people who voted for him.
