#SoundOff: Enough Fluff – 4 Things That Buhari Needs To Tackle Urgently

Must read

by Sheila Obla

I totally agree with Favour Afolabi who said the recent propaganda coming out of Aso Rock on President Muhammadu Buhari supposedly rejecting the purchase of 3 Mercedes Benz for his convoy as bullsh*it.

Here is a brief outline of issues facing Nigeria that President Buhari should tackle and leave this trickish and cunning rubbish he is doing to deceive people:

1. The economy is getting worse, the Naira is falling, foreign investors are either pulling out their investments or putting a hold on it. Local investors are also putting investments on hold.

2. Corruption is on the increase. He gave governors billions to pay them back for funding his campaign. He did this in the guise of bail-out funds. Buhari is also making financial decisions that will affect Nigeria without a professional financial adviser ie Finance Minister in place. Nigeria is not his farm in Daura.

3. Boko Haram has reclaimed territories and has killed close to 1000 people since Buhari came into office barely 40 days ago.

4. A true test of a leader is in constituting a team. Buhari has failed this test. For some reason he thinks its sexy to appoint his cousins (DG, SSS – Daura) and his niece (INEC Chairman – Zakari). He doesn’t realize it makes him look stupid.

Please we prefer Buhari to get to work and leave these cheap publicity stunts.
