A Nigerian development economist and former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr. Obadiah Mailafia, has revealed President Muhammadu Buhari’s scorecard on security, economy and corruption fight.
The statesman who spoke on Friday while featuring on a PUNCH Live interview programme, said the All Progressive Congress (APC) government led by Buhari has failed woefully in managing the nation’s economy, fight against security threat and fight against corruption.
According to the Presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress in the last election, Buhari has failed also in leadership and his foreign objectives policy.
Mailafia, however, gave the Buhari administration a pass mark in infrastructure because of some road projects that are under construction with some already completed.
Mailafia stated categorically that he has nothing personal with Buhari. He said, “If you have F9 in seven subjects, I don’t think any tertiary institution or college of education can take you.”
Meanwhile, Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde has declared that nothing good will come out of the ongoing review of the 1999 constitution by the National Assembly, Naija News reports.
In his view, the exercise is an exercise in futility set up just to ensure funds budgeted for the exercise are spent.
The Governor queried why the report of the 2014 National conference which was convened by former President Goodluck Jonathan can’t be implemented.
