Former Kaduna Central senator, Shehu Sani has given a brutal assessment of the administration of outgoing President Muhammadu Buhari, rating him low on many fronts.

Buhari is set to hand over to President-elect Bola Tinubu at Eagle Square, Abuja on Monday, May 29, rounding off his eight-year rule.

In a lengthy tweet on Sunday, hours after Buhari’s farewell broadcast to the nation, Sani accused the outgoing government of setting traps for its successor.

He also said that Buhari failed to fulfill many of his promises to Nigerians, especially in the area of security, poverty alleviation, and restructuring of the country.

The tweet read, “He led the country without any economic direction. He presided over a Government that failed to secure the lives of Nigerians; 63k dead, 3m IDPs & 366k refugees in neighbouring countries.

“He failed to restructure as he promised. He granted waivers to the rich & impoverished the poor. He closed the borders for those who import bags of rice on motorcycles and permitted those who use the ships.

“He built magical pyramids that disappeared after three days. He left uncompleted projects with huge debts to service for decades.

“He enabled, enriched & reinforced a cabal for 8 years. He appointed & retained failures and reward them with extensions.

“He was weak in taking decisions & runway when it’s tough. He has no house in London but made London his home.

“He left behind record inflation, record devaluation, record unemployment, record fall in GDP, record figures of poverty and record plunder of state resources.

“He left behind a nation with 60m people suffering from mental illnesses. He is leaving (behind) the health workers on strike. He set up traps for the next Government in order to make his own look better.”
