‘Buhari failed as Nigerian president’ – Ndume

Senator representing Borno-South, Mohammed Ali Ndume, has revealed the biggest mistake former President Muhammadu Buhari made while in power, making him fail as a leader.

Ndume, who stated this during an interview on a television programme, said Buhari was not in charge of his government like President Bola Tinubu.

According to the senator, Buhari would give his aides assignments and would not bother to monitor them, which led to too many kleptocrats in his government. Ndume, however, said the current president, Tinubu, is fully in charge.

He said, “That is one thing with him (Tinubu). People think Tinubu is authoritative. The truth is that he takes charge, unlike our former president, who would just give you an assignment and not look over you. That was the mistake President Buhari made. He confessed that he had too many kleptocrats than people who genuinely showed interest”.

Ndume further said he knew there were so many kleptocrats in the Buhari government, saying even the former president confessed to that.

He added, “But, in the Tinubu government, he can’t do that. You can see what he did to his own son; during the Council sitting, he was going there. But the President threw him up. If it were another person, he would do nothing”.

Recall that Buhari ruled over Nigeria for eight years, from 2015-2023; however, despite promises, many Nigerians are of the view that his administration failed in all sectors.
