“Ex-President Buhari wasted Nigeria’s time for eight years, appointed people who failed”
Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, has described the immediate past president, Muhammadu Buhari as the worst ruler in the history of Nigeria.
He described President Buhari’s 8-year tenure as a “waste.”
Sani made the claims on Sunday, in Abuja, during the launch of the book, ‘The Nigerian Dream’ written by activist, Moses Paul.
The rights activist said, “[Muhammadu] Buhari wasted Nigeria’s time for eight years. And he appointed people who failed and he kept on extending their period in office. That is very wrong.
“He has accused all [previous] governments of corruption. All the ills of Nigeria, he accused all the previous governments [of being responsible for them]. Yet, his government has proven the worst in the history of Nigeria.”
The former lawmaker said Nigeria can be a united and prosperous nation if the leaders “lead with the fear of God and a determination and commitment to fulfil your pledges.”
In Sani’s words at the book launch, he said, “It has been 63 years since our political independence and when you go through the manifestos of Nigeria’s first-generation politicians, it’s about light, water, education, bridges, unity. And here we are, over six decades, we are still talking of the same thing. So, I believe that the Nigeria of our dream should be the different one that we inherited; an improved version of it.”
