Having someone like Buhari as your president can be risky.

He can turn the US economy into a replica of the one in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, say social media users.

President Muhammadu Buhari is a huge sports lover, and I think Arsenal is his favorite team.

For this reason, he constantly monitors sports news to determine who to celebrate and invite to his Aso mansion in Abuja.

The benefits of having Buhari on your side are undeniable, but if you subscribe to superstition—like many others who, in my opinion, dislike the President—it can wind up being more of a “Just Dey Play” scenario than a “Buga” one.

Over time, there has been a jocular reference to the Buhari curse, which states that when sports figures or teams have the President’s backing, they would lose.

The Buhari curse has followed Nigeria’s president ever since the day the Super Eagles were beaten, and many are still joking about it today.

What is the “Buhari Curse”?

The Nigerian president Buhari, who was born in the state of Kastina in Daura, has a history of being a “bad luck” to a variety of athletes and sports teams throughout the years.

It’s been noted that whenever he picks a team or someone to congratulate or speak to as the president of Nigeria, the sports team or player ends up experiencing some type of bad luck.

Following the rise of superstitions that doing so would be unlucky, many citizens have repeatedly taken to social media to urge athletes not to meet with the President. Not long after they were photographed or got a congratulatory message from President Buhari, several found themselves losing games.

But the Buhari curse didn’t just affect football players; a number of other athletes also suffered losses. Soon after being photographed bowing to Mr. Buhari, boxer Anthony Joshua lost a significant match. Fighter Kamaru Usman experienced the same thing.

Oh, and the Super Eagles of Nigeria also suffered a significant setback as a result of his call to congratulate them during the 2021 African Cup of Nations Tournaments. He also congratulate Morocco, the first African nation team to ever advance to the semifinals, but they were defeated by France after conceding two goals.

Anyway this article is just to state what people on social media are saying not to disrespect the greatest black nation.
