Following President Muhammadu Buhari’s nationwide address where he claimed to have left Nigeria in a better condition than he met it in 2015, former federal lawmaker, Shehu Sani, has listed the failures of the outgoing president.
He noted that Buhari is leaving behind a country without any economic direction, a failed security system, over 3 million Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, 366,000 refugees in neighbouring countries and a country not restructured.
He accused Buhari, among other things, of granting waivers to the rich and impoverishing the poor, closing the borders for those who import bags of rice on motorcycles and permitting those who use the ships.
“He led the country without any economic direction.He presided over a Government that failed to secure the lives of Nigerians; 63k dead, 3m IDPs & 366k refugees in neighbouring countries,” he tweeted.
“He failed to restructure as he promised.He granted waivers to the rich & impoverished the poor.He closed the borders for those who import bags of rice on motorcycles and permitted those who use the ships.
“He built magical pyramids that disappeared after three days.He left incomplete projects with huge debts to service for decades.
“He enabled,enriched & reinforced a cabal for 8 years.He appointed & retained failures and rewarded them with extensions.He was weak in taking decisions & runway when it’s tough.
“He has no house in London but made London his home. He left behind record inflation, record devaluation, record unemployment, record fall in GDP, record figures of poverty and record plunder of state resources.
“He left behind a nation with 60m people suffering from mental illnesses.He is leaving behind the health workers on strike.He set up traps for the next Government in order to make his own look better.”
