Barrister Olusegun Bamgbose Esq., the National Coordinator of Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s five years in office as a failure.

The Lagos-based legal practitioner also called on Nigerians to start shopping for Buhari’s replacement, adding that his government is marred by lack of ideas and focus.

In a statement he made available on Monday, the senior lawyer pointed out Buhari’s age and cabal as the two factors that have heavily contributed to the failure of the government.

According to him, “The five years of Buhari as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and if truth must be told, he has not performed creditably well in terms of managing the economy.

“I’ll want to use the SECURE parameters to assess his five years as the number one citizen of Nigeria- S for Security.

“The primary responsibility of any responsible government is Security of lives and properties. President Buhari has not fared well in securing the lives and properties of the citizens.

“He performed below average in this very sensitive area. The Boko Haram invasion is yet to be defeated whether technically or realistically.

“This is really sad. Nigerians five years ago voted for Buhari with the belief that he being a former military leader, will have the capacity to nip in the bud the insurgency, but unfortunately, this was not to be.

“In this area, Buhari failed. E for Economy. In terms of economy, this government has not met with the yearnings of Nigerians. Poverty and hardship are the order of the day.

“There is no significant improvement in terms of economic growth. The government lacks what it takes to boost the economy. Unemployment has been on the increase.

“Prices of goods are on the increase. In terms of the economy, Buhari scores below average. C for Corruption. There is no visible sign that the corruption level has abated. The level of corruption is still very high.

“However, Buhari’s government can’t be said to be a total failure as some convictions have been recorded. One will however expect him to do more to tackle this high dreaded monster called corruption. U for unemployment.

“Buhari’s government has not impacted positively on creating job opportunities for the jobless. Notwithstanding the N-POWER introduced by the government.

“The rate of unemployment is still very high for Resources management. The simple truth is that there is no accountability in this government.

“The government has really mismanaged the resources of this nation through ineptitude and corruption. The government has been resulting to borrowing to meet up with its obligations.

“This is a clear sign that the government has failed to manage the resources at its disposal appropriately and judiciously. This is really sad. E for Education. In terms of Education the government has not fared well.

“The government has not been able to improve the educational standard to an expected level. Conclusively, one can say that Buhari has not really impressed the majority of Nigerians.

“His government is marred with lack of ideas and focus. I think Nigerians should start shopping for Buhari’s replacement come 2023.

“It’s no doubt that age has heavily contributed to the failure of this government coupled with cabalism. It’s never too early to start checking the most suitable Nigerian to take over from Buhari. His ministers are weak.

“The nation will need to rise up to the occasion. Buhari is not the expected messiah. He has failed Nigeria the second time. However he still has 3 more years to prove the critics wrong.”
