The Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of beingness dishonest to Nigerians.
Reacting to Buhari’s Independence Daytime broadcast, Afenifere the president has farther exposed the disconnect betwixt his authorities and Nigerians.
Afenifere said the “ikon painted by Buhari of the Nigeria state of affairs was at variance with what is on ground.”
In a statement by its spokesman, Jare Ajayi, the organization said: “The 61st Independence broadcast by President Muhammadu Buhari on Fri, Oct 1, 2021, farther showcases the dishonesty on the section of those governing the country and the disconnection betwixt them and the people they rule.”
Ajayi also compared Buhari’s current speech with that of finally yr.
He said: “In the 16th paragraph of his 2020 Independence anniversary speech, the president conceded that the country’s major institutions – and by implication, the services they were supposed to return to the country – were on the decline. In his words, “institutions such as civil service, law, the judiciary, the armed forces all suffered from a full general decline”.
According to Ajayi, “There is no indication on ground that this assessment given finally yr by the president has changed for the superior. The services beingness rendered to the people of Nigeria by these institutions go along to be on the decline in terms of value delivery. The reason for this beingness lack of requisite resources and motivation.
“It is, so, unfair on the section of the president to accuse ‘critics’ of misdiagnosing “incremental progress as stagnation” as he did in his 2021 independence anniversary speech.”
Afenifere farther said that the president’s claim that a lot has been achieved in the finally 6 years “in infrastructure, social attention, governance, Nigeria’s image and influence in Africa and the international community” is against the reality on the ground.
“There has never been a time in the annals of contemporary Nigeria that the country’s infrastructure was this decadent, social attention near-absent and the image of the country was so battered. Indeed, the difference betwixt at present and in the days of the tardily Sani Abacha was that the top dog of province and then was wearing Khaki piece the nowadays top dog of authorities wears civilian clothe and there are democratic institutions similar the legislature that were absent and then. In terms of the country’s influence in Africa, how many countries in Africa at present observe Nigeria going by the inhuman treatments Nigerians are subjected into in different parts of the world including Africa these days?”
