Former Chairman, Transparency International, Nigeria chapter, Maj. Gen Ola Ishola Williams (retd) has told Nigerians that anyone putting hope on President Muhammadu Buhari was wasting his or her time.
He claimed that Buhari has failed and has nothing to offer, adding that the promise of change made by the All Progressives Congress, APC, was nothing but a deceit.
Williams insisted that there was no hope of any meaningful change for Nigeria under Buhari, adding that the signs of the failure of the administration were visible for Nigerians to see.
“Obviously, Buhari is failing, he has not been inspiring, and any Nigerian who puts any hope in Buhari is wasting his time – the state governors are also a big burden to this nation,” he told Saturday Sun.
Asked about the promised change, he added, “That’s deceit. It is a deceit by APC, and Buhari’s supporters. There can’t be any change under Buhari. Those who are talking of next level are politicians deceiving Nigerians.
“There is no hope of any meaningful change for Nigeria under Buhari. It is not that I have anything against him. But all the signs of the failure of his administration are there, visible for Nigerians to see. Insecurity has become a big challenge. It is festering, and Buhari’s government appears clueless to tackle the problem.
“The Boko Haram insurgency is also there. Although top government officials will always pretend that all is well, it is not only Nigerians that know that the security situation in Nigeria is precarious; members of the international community are also aware. So, who is government deceiving?
“Look at the Apapa gridlock which has become a shame of a nation. For more than four years now, Buhari’s government has not been able to find a solution to it, and that is just a single problem; what about the power issue? Nigerians can’t be deceived even if Buhari and his apologists are deceiving themselves.”
