Buhari Has No Clue On Governance – Adebanjo

Chief Ayo Adebanjo, elder statesman and chieftain of Afenifere on Wednesday told President Muhammadu Buhari to stop blaming former President Goodluck Jonathan and focus his attention on delivering the gains of democracy to Nigerians.

Speaking in a chat with Independent on the state of the nation, Adebanjo who said President Buhari has no clue on how to govern the country also described the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as collection of incompatibles who only ganged up to remove Jonathan from office.

While commending Buhari on the fight against corruption, he said the only clause in the president’s anti-graft war is his flagrant abuse for the rule of law.

“I don’t believe in Buhari from the word go. He is on track principally on the fight against corruption with a caveat. I commended him on the fight against corruption but I condemned him because he is a man who doesn’t have respect for rule of law. I have not seen any lawyer or human rights activist that has praised him for obeying the rule of law”.

“I don’t see any sector where I can give him a pass mark. My quarrel with him is, you said you want to become president because Jonathan didn’t perform well. The people agreed with you and voted him out. Now that you Buhari has been elected, what are you expected to do?”

“This is not the time for blame game, saying Jonathan is responsible for this or that. That period is gone. Now is the implementation period to undo all the bad things that Jonathan has done. If you have a solution, bring it out and let’s see”.

“My belief is that Buhari has no clue and the APC is a collection of incompatibles. They don’t agree on anything except Jonathan must go. Now that Jonathan is gone, they are finding it hard to give Nigerians the change they promised” he said.
