Biography assessment rating comment
One then wonders how Muslims can possibly be 60% of the population, as some allege..
- "Then". I am not sure I understand the question. Are you saying this figure is too low or too high? There is a rather large number of Muslims in Yorubaland, too...—iFaqeer (Talk to me!) 21:01, Apr 11, 2005 (UTC)
This page is incredibly biased, perhaps edited by Buhari himself? 126.96.36.199 09:29, 1 February 2007 (UTC)
Cleanup of syntax, references, and inclusion of cross-references
I have tried to clean up some syntax, have added several Wikipedia cross-references, and have revised the references in this article. The following two references were included in the original reference section, but were not used in the article. Therefore, I have deleted these and placed them here for future reference, if needed.
- CLYDE H. FARNSWORTH, "MAN IN THE NEWS; A NATIONALIST FOR NIGERIANS", The New York Times, January 2, 1984
- We have no time to waste', Financial Times (London,England), February 25, 1985
In addition, I have added several "citation(s) needed" tags for a few statements in the "Later Years" section. These statements are biographical and need verification. Idunno271828 (talk) 06:10, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
I've put some effort into cleaning up the bias noted by another commenter here. This article was very heavy on unsourced praise and speculation and contained little reference to the wide criticism of Buhari's human rights record and economic policy. So I've removed the unsourced praise and added in details that seem to be more in keeping with the history texts and reportage on his regime. This one could use another look from an editor more knowledgeable about Nigerian history than I, however. And it could also just use a few watchers as this election gets closer--it's pretty clear Buhari's partisans have had free run of it until now. Khazar (talk) 17:58, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
