Buhari Performance In Five Years Woeful — Shettima



The Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, AYCF, says performance of President Muhammadu Buhari after five years in office is nothing to write home about.

AYCF President-General, Yerima Shettima made the assertion on Sunday.

He was reacting to Femi Adesina’s, president Buhari’s media aide, stance on performance of the president.

While marking the fifth year anniversary of Buhari in office on May 29, Adesina had released a fact sheet chronicling the achievements of the president.

Many had since berated the president’s media aide over his claims.

Shettima, in an interview with DAILY POST, said Adesina is working with the government so it was only natural to say things that will portray the government in good light.

He noted that even those in government have confessed that something is wrong with the current administration.

According to Shettima: “He (Buhari) has not done well, Femi Adesina is only doing his job and you don’t expect him to say otherwise because he will always get his salary, even those in government have admitted that something is wrong.

“I do not think it’s right for any normal person to say they have done well in the area of economy, security, policy, in terms of clear direction of where they are heading.

“In the first place, there is no programme in the last few years, so I do not understand how somebody would imagine and say they are doing well. If you speak with those in government one-on-one, they always admit that something went wrong and that they have failed.

“We all know that this is one of the critical times, all hopes must not be dashed, all hands must be on deck. The very bad side of this government is that they don’t open up to discuss some of the issues they are having so people can advice them and even if you advice them, they don’t believe it’s true and when you are not part of them, they won’t take it, so this is a problem.”

The AYCF President-General insisted that most of those that constitute Buhari’s team are not good enough.

“Though Buhari has to take responsibility but government is not runned by an individual, it’s a collective thing.

“Unfortunately, the team Buhari has is not good enough, most of them are not good enough. Though there are a few good hands who are determined to work but they are being overwhelmed by majority of those who see governance as a means of livelihood and business against the collective will of over two hundred million Nigerians.

“If Buhari had a better team they would have worked but when you have a team that is doomed and only a few that has foresight and being overwhelmed, then don’t expect to see anything less than what we are currently seeing,” he said.
