Some Nigerians are blasting President Muhammadu Buhari for condemning the military coup in Zimbabwe, saying that he should remember his own bloody past.

Commentators on the social media asked him to remember when he overthrew the democratically elected government of Shehu Shagari on 31 December 1983 before he was overthrown himself less than two years after by General Babangida.

“The day you ‘overthrew’ Shagari, you did not respect the Nigerian constitution,” lamented Mustapha Salis Sani in response to a story published by Simon Ateba News Africa.

“Did he respect his own constitution,” fired Cuolibanli George. Several others urged the ex-military ruler to shut up as his past is darker than what he’s condemning.

President Buhari on Wednesday called for calm, peace and respect for the constitution in Zimbabwe and urged all political and military stakeholders in Zimbabwe to avoid any action that may plunge the country into unnecessary conflict and impact negatively on the region.

According to President Buhari, “every attempt must be made to resolve all contentious issues by constitutional means in Zimbabwe to save the country from avoidable political instability.”

The appeal by the Nigerian leader came in the wake of reported “military takeover” as a result of rising political tension in the southern African country sequel to President Robert Mugabe’s recent removal of former Vice-President, Emmerson Mnangagwa.

This led to the threat by the head of the Armed Forces of Zimbabwe, General Constantino Chiwenga, that “the military will not hesitate to step in” when the issue had to do with protecting the “revolution.”
