Shehu Sani, the former Kaduna Central Senator, has described former President, Muhammadu Buhari as one of the worst leaders ever to lead Nigeria.
According to the socio-political commentator, the eight-year rule of the Buhari administration was disastrous, stating that it would take years to recover from it.
In a chat with Punch, the former lawmaker said the former President left Nigeria in a very desolate and paralysed situation, adding that Nigeria became more divided than it has ever been under the Buhari administration.
He further stated that corruption was at its peak under Buhari, and he demonstrated ineptitude and incompetence in the leadership of the country.
His words: “You know we are coming from eight years of (Muhammadu) Buhari’s disastrous reign. Buhari is one of the worst presidents we have had in this country. He left Nigeria in a very desolate and paralysed situation. Under Buhari, over 100,000 Nigerians were massacred by terrorists.
“Under Buhari, we piled up over N77tn debt. Under Buhari, Nigeria became more divided than it has ever been. Under Buhari, corruption was at its peak. Buhari demonstrated ineptitude and incompetence in the leadership of this country. If a minister is removed under Buhari, it takes up to six months for another to be replaced.
“Anyone who finishes his tenure, whether as Controller of Customs, Immigration or Prison Service, finds his tenure being extended by six months or by two months or more. This was the kind of leader Buhari was. This was a leader who would sit down and see that the Police Service Commission and the Nigeria Police Force were in court, and he would have no solution to the problem.
“These are all parastatals under him. This was a leader who had no solution when the DSS and the EFCC were exchanging fire. This was a leader who could not even choose his successor.
“He wanted Ahmed Lawan, and the chosen one was Ahmed Tinubu. So, in almost all indices, he kept on borrowing and destroying the economy of this country. Now, this is where we came from. Bola Tinubu took over power not with the support of President Muhammadu Buhari because he was not his candidate in the primaries.“
