Ango Abdullahi: Buhari’s Major Problem Is Incompetent And Selfish Lieutenants by agwom(m): 6:33am On May 30, 2020
Professor Ango Abdullahi is a former minister and former Vice Chancellor of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria. He is now the chairman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF).

In this interview with Daily Trust Saturday, he has, among others, blamed what he called incompetent and selfish appointees/associates for the “failure” of Buhari’s administration.

Excerpt: Nigeria is celebrating 21 years since the return of democracy, what is your take on that?

I did not believe 29th of May is the Democracy Day for Nigeria. Democracy Day is 1st of October, because that is the day that Nigeria became politically independent from colonial masters. If the interpretation of Democracy Day means Nigeria has moved from military to another form of administration, I wouldn’t say that we have moved from military administration to democracy. What we have done was to move from military administration to civilian administration.

There is difference between civilian administration and democratic administration. As far as I am concerned we have not enjoyed democratic administration in the last 21 years, including the current period that we are in now. In fact, we have suffered more in terms of less democracy in the last four to five years than any other time in the last 21 years.

How then do you view the leadership style of the incumbent President, Muhammadu Buhari?

Well, it is difficult to give straight answer to this question. From a distance, I would say that he delegates power to other people who probably have no qualification and competence to execute the duties of their offices. They may also have no mandate to execute those powers delegated to them.

The presidential powers that are enshrined in the constitution are entailing the responsibilities of a person who offered himself for election, as Buhari did. Eventually, he emerged as the president and therefore those powers are exclusively his own powers. All he needs to do is to ensure that those powers are executed in the expectation of the people of the country. Yes, he can’t do everything all alone; we concede. He has to find people or assistants, associates and colleagues who would be assigned various roles and responsibilities to carry out those functions that are his own.

I once postulated few months after he emerged as president for second term that we trust his honesty, but unfortunately he has failed to gather the necessary materials with which to execute the duties and functions of the office of the president by the poor quality of people that he gathered around either as ministers or any other role they play.

As a teacher, if you asked to grade the performance of Buhari in comparison to the previous presidents since the return of democracy, what would be your score for him?

I have worked with only one of the presidents. I worked with Obasanjo for three years. Of course, Obasanjo was a better president. I ranked Obasanjo far better president than Buhari. This is because of his ability to take on the duties of president whether sometimes right or wrong. The critical job of the president is to take decision. Some of the decisions may be right, while others may be wrong. The most important thing is that there must be somebody who takes decisions and take responsibility. This is where Obasanjo excelled. He took decision and took responsibility. This is the major difference between Obasanjo’s presidency and that of Buhari.

Aside selection of competent lieutenants, which other area do you think that the Buhari presidency is lagging behind?

I have never personally been close to him, but from afar I would say lack of firmness. Firmness means that he should come out as president to ensure that his decisions are executed to the latter. However, we notice that he did not exhibit that firmness.

For example, when somebody is alleged to have done something wrong and you requested for evidence and ample of them were provided; the president should take decisive action to serve as deterrent. The reverse is however the case. We have instances of people close to him that engaged in one wrong doing or the other, but went scot free after a lot of evidences have been adduced directly and indirectly. These were in terms of both moral and material corruption.

About our darling daddy being too gentle and not firm with people, the Prof is not far from the truth.

Exc2000, remember this?
We made this post just 2 hours ago on another thread about Trump coming against and censoring WHO, Twitter. Facebook et all
And Prof just confirms what we pointed out.


Exc2000:
grin
I hope imbecilic Nigerian Trump supporters know that once Trump gets this done, Buhari would also follow suite and censor social media in Nigeria
yusufu16:
This is what BUHARI should have done.
In Nigeria our law makers wants to censor the users instead of the companies.

Lol, our darling Daddy won't do that.
That is one thing we tell Daddy at home,
He is just too soft and gentle with some troublemakers in this part of the world, loud-mouth-porn.star mofo, pained loosing modafockers. 'I'm in pain criminals'! grin
That is one thing we like about Baba Ota, the Farmer.
Baba Fire for fire.
Who born u well to cough in Baba Ota's presence? undecided
A man that does anything and everything without blinking twice.

That is the only part we have issues with dad at home, all in the name of 'we don't want more wahala in our darling nation, they should return all they stole and get out'
No Dad, send more of them to jail.
That is where they belong, to teach others sense!

But, PMB pays no mind to them cos he knows, wailers must wail, no matter the situation
Especially wailing about about someone that collected the keys to our national treasury from them to stop looting and stealing.

EgunMogaji2:

Baba, it’s too early to be rousing the rebels grin
Let them sleep small.
Lol cheesy
Na our lane we dey always dey o.
They are the ones that come to Dem MANNA with foolishness, almost on a daily basis.
We will wake up to see some of these kid's (6 of them, with 1432 monikers among them) quotes everywhere!
Seems they are always having MANNA nightmares.

Dem go dey alrite las las.

Btw,
We no be Baba o,
We are simply WE!

Have a blessed weekend ahead Baba Agbalagba! wink cheesy
One and Only EgunMogaji.

Exc2000:
you are right
well Buhari seem to be trying all his possible best not to look like a dictator since he was once a military, and people are abusing that and taking it for weakness... if he act tough they woud blackmail him with media hogwash calling him a General
You have said it all bro.

.This president really bleeped the country up, he divided us so much. These are some of the deductions I made while I interacted.

Most people didn't know that there exist two major types of Muslims: Shia and sunni until he came to power
Most southerners are unaware that hausa is different from the fulani until he came to power then most people started reading about the history of how fulanis came into nigeria

Most people didn't know that carrying a cutlass in a sheath up and down in a city center is part of the fulani dressing fashion until he came to power

Most people didn't know that all emirs are fulanis that overthrew the original natives until this man came to power

I never heard of the word "Yoruba Muslims" until he came to power. Then MURIC started fighting for hijab up and down even into the law school graduants ceremony and the University of ibadan

Most people never knew that kaduna is divided into southern Christian kaduna and Northerner Muslim kaduna until he came to power

Most people didn't know that its possible to discard federal character and appoint only your tribesmen/region as the only trusted people into the security architecture of the country even when there performance is abysmal

Most people never knew that benue state is not part the hausas/fulani states until he came to power
The killings in benue brought about the knowledge that benue state is not indigenous to the hausas /fulanis
The state is only geographically situated in the north

On my own I never knew that 5% and 97% can make up 100%

Buhari major problem is laziness.

I can sum all his short comings into one word - laziness.

Laziness to improve himself : he was too lazy to resit for o level.

He was too lazy to go back to school or even take courses to improve himself after his failed outing as a military president.

He was too lazy to read and learn how to run cattle business, hence, he got stuck with his small herd of cow for several years.

Laziness made him spend 6 months before forming a cabinet. If that is not laziness I don't know what to call it.

After failing in his first term now he is too lazy to make any meaningful change in his cabinet.

I have never seen anyone as lazy as Buhari.

No wonder he was projecting on Nigerian youths by calling them lazy whereas he is the chief commander of lazy grin
