Human right activist and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Mike Ozekhome has, in strong words, attacked the Government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He scored the administration low in the area of security, economy and fundamental rights abuses.
Ozekhome said this in a statement titled “Assessment of President Muhammadu Buhari’s 4 years of governance.”
He ranked Buhari’s first four years as worst since the “amalgamation of Southern and Northern Nigeria by Lord Laggard on 1st January 1914.”
The statement reads: “I most honestly and patriotically describe the last four years of the President Muhammadu Buhari government as quite uneventful, below average, colourless, clueless,vindictive, selective, exclusionary, non nationalistic, non pan-Nigerian, haemorraging economically and highly sectional, cronystic and pre-bendaslistic.
“In terms of security, its performance is below par, since whatever gain he would have made in the much-trumpeted degradation of Boko Haram (you and I know this is merely theoretical as the sect is more deadly today than ever before) has been replaced with a more potent escalation of herdsmen insurgency and unrestrained banditry.
“Nigeria has been turned into a gruesome killing field by rampaging gun-wielding bandits of different genre. The economy is in tatters and at the lowest ebb. Hunger, squalor, ignorance, despondency, abject penury, corruption, hopelessness and haplessness have been enthroned as fundamental objectives and directive principles of state policy.
“Budgets are padded, even disappear. There is hardly any form of accountability and transparency in governance as the government is run in a most opaque manner, like the nocturnal activities of witches and wizards in a coven.”
