Nigeria nearly collapsed under Jonathan, Buhari saved us from packing up – Segun Oni

A former governor of Ekiti State, Engr Segun Oni, has stated that the election of President Muhammadu Buhari into power saved Nigeria from collapsing.


According to him, if not for Buhari’s take over of the nation’s highest political throne, Nigeria would have packed up by now.

Oni, who spoke with Vanguard, said the current government should not be blamed for the ailing economy, which he said was inherited from the previous government led by Goodluck Jonathan.

He said, “The economy was trumatized by a government whose only agenda was to win another round. Therefore, everything that they could put into trying to win a second round even bastardising the economy were all done, and we are all here now.

He said all thanks to the current government who saved Nigeria from packing up.

Oni, who is now the Deputy National Chairman, (South) of the All Progressives Congress APC said, “Fortunately for them, I would say they are not there any longer. The reality on ground is that if the previous Government was in power, by now, Nigeria would have virtually packed up; may be many of us would be refugees by now.”



  1. Mr oni point of correction, Nigerians voted a change of government and Nigerians got a change. But that change is relative. Buhari was voted for,he did not vote himself unless you are admitting that apc rigged the presidential elections. So the electorate accurately saved Nigeria from the past. It is for buhari to now deliver dividends of that vote.

  2. Stupid animal, Segun Oni is a big fool, a fool that organise 25yrs of Ekiti state being created without inviting the governor, only few Obas are invited , any Oba that’s not supporting his party will not be invited. Animal in human flesh.

  3. Oni just the way you almost pack up EKITI within a short while. No developmental project was done by you. Wen you knew you have lost out you ran for cover under APC. Pls note that countries don’t pack up like that. The worst that could happen is recession which your party had brought on the people. Talk with a little bit of common sense. Even the motor Park touts have better understanding of governance than you. So Park well
