Buhari Makes History, Becomes First Nigerian To Enter English Dictionary

President Muhammadu Buhari might be sick and probably enduring some unpopular moments in his political career due to the crises in Nigeria but he has achieved a milestone in his life. He has broken the nation’s record as the first Nigerian to enter the English dictionary. He is the first Nigerian to have a political term – “Buharism” named after him.

According to the Wikipedia, “Buharism is a term rooted in the politics of Nigeria, referring to the economic principles and the political ideology of the military government of Nigeria headed by General Muhammadu Buhari from 31 December 1983 to 27 August 1985. This ideology shares common features with fascism; the government was a right-wing nationalist government that pursued corporatist economic programs and curtailed personal freedoms. 

Economic reforms were characterised as moving the political economy away from the control of a “parasitic” elite, and into the control of an emerging “productive” class. Buharism represented a two-way struggle: with external global capitalism and with its internal agents and advocates.”

Buhari is widely hailed as a strong man of integrity who is cleansing Nigeria of the cancer of political corruption. His faltering health has constituted a setback but it is hoped that the All Progressives Congress chieftain and Fulani native will surmount the challenges before him for the betterment of Nigeria.
