Sani reveals Buhari’s biggest problem


The Secretary-General of the Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, Elder Anthony Sani, has revealed the major problem with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

Sani identified Buhari’s culture of silence in every issue that comes up as his major flaw.

While commending the government for the fight against corruption and terrorism, the ACF scribe noted that the president hasn’t spoken out when his voice needed to be heard.

Sani told Punch that there was serious division in the All Progressives Congress, APC’s government as members of the party seem to be attacking one another.

He said, “I also do not fancy the culture of silence by the President on almost all challenges that come up.

“This conveys an avoidable impression of a leadership style that allows problems to fizzle out with time. Some of us do not like such style.

“In addition, while the emphasis the president puts on appointing only people he personally knows to be very loyal is in line with his professional training may be understandable, he needs to know that some of the appointees can still abuse his trust, hence the need for presidential oversight on their activities

“I believe the regime has done creditably well in the fight against the insurgence and corruption in order to clear the way for the economy which is picking up.

“That may explain why the letter by the former president has become controversial. If the regime has not performed creditably well, Obasanjo’s letter would have received national endorsement.

“No regime can be perfect. Surely, the regime has its own shortcomings such as the impression of a divided presidency where government’s functionaries openly contradict themselves.

“Also, a party with majority in the legislature should be seen as working in harmony. But this is not the case because members of the ruling party openly challenge the president and the executive arm of the government. This is odd.”
