Buhari: The Absentee President By Bayo Oluwasanmi

Of all Nigerian Presidents, President Muhammadu Buhari lacks related expertise and topic experience for the job of the president. Tragically, Buhari has did not make up for his historic lack of {qualifications}. He has compounded the issue together with his historic laziness.

Buhari is an absentee president who relish abroad jaunts as a substitute of discovering options to crippling socio-economic and political issues going through Nigeria. Nigerians don’t know precisely what Buhari is doing or would do as president. His plans, insurance policies, and applications stay hazy and fuzzy in a rustic whose future is as unsure and hopeless as its 200 million Akindanidani residents.

Within the midst of 500 billion Naira stolen by Godwin Emefiele, CBN Governor and his three prime employees, and with limitless killings by each Buhari’s Fulani kinsmen herdsmen terrorists and Boko Haram terrorists, Buhari jets out Nigeria to attend Umar Hajj (lesser hajj) in Mecca. 

This is a abstract of the international locations Buhari has visited as president from 2015 to 2018.

If presidential success is decided by successful re-election, Buhari is unsuccessful as a result of he did not persuade Nigerians to provide him one other 4 years in workplace which was why the election was massively rigged in his favor. Buhari got here into workplace promising change. He didn’t advocate radical change or announce sweeping home reforms. 

Buhari lacks imaginative and prescient. A nasty communicator, he has by no means communicated his strategy successfully on how he’ll deal with Nigeria’s issues. Because the nation spirals into financial despair and anarchy, Buhari stays stoic, aloof, distant, insensitive, lacking in motion, and at all times abdicates his duties by touring overseas.

Buhari has bluntly refused to authorize large-scale aid applications which may have alleviated struggling and starvation. He is unwilling to make use of vital federal spending to jumpstart the economic system. Buhari by no means grasped the grave menace the financial disaster represents to the nation. These missteps have been additional difficult by his inept political maneuvering and frequent abroad journeys. 
His questionable political judgment and management are in severe doubt. He shows little political acumen on points. What emerges then for Buhari is a damning verdict of an absentee president – bodily and mentally.
