Is President Buhari Really The Problem of Nigeria, Or Nigerians Are Pointing Accusing Fingers In The Wrong Direction?


Many Nigerians have been blaming President Muhammadu Buhari for being the architect of Nigeria’s impending downfall.

Ever since the President took power in the 2015 presidential election, things have gone rather awkwardly, with the hike in fuel, electricity, vats, and tariffs, yet the economy seems to be on a downward spiral.

Many have been pointing accusing fingers at President Buhari for the economic failure and insecurity rocking the country.

The fast-rising of insecurity across the northern states has turned the northern establishment, comprising elders, academics, prominent clerics, traders, farmers, and a segment of the public against President Muhammadu Buhari with the recent massacre of rice farmers in Zabarmari village in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State by Boko Haram insurgents not helping the matter.

Summing up the situation, the Sultan of Sokoto and President of the Nigerian Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, recently stated in an interview that the North was the worst place to live in the country, in view of the escalating insecurity.

The question now remains, is Buhari really the problem of Nigeria.
