Buhari’s Capacity To Govern Questionable – CSO Reacts To Aisha’s Warning
A civic group, African Centre for Media and Information Literacy stated it is smacked of hypocrisy for Mrs. Aisha Buhari to blame only governors and ministers for the socio-economic state of affairs within the nation, whereas turning a blind eye to the “ineptitude” of her husband’s government.
Dr. Chido Onumah, the AFRICMIL coordinator, said Aisha was one of many main beneficiaries of “Buhari’s lack of consistency and ineptitude.”
The activist acknowledged that the First Lady’s assertion indicting the nation’s political leadership called to query her husband’s capability to govern.
In his word: Beyond the question of hypocrisy, I don’t think it is in her place, but as a Nigerian, she is entitled to her opinion on that; but I think there is a serious question mark when she comes out to make such statements at a public event, knowing full well what is going on in the presidency, which, to be fair to her, she had also condemned in the past.”
“It is quite hypocritical of her to choose and pick in terms of profligacy and waste that is going on in government, but it also tells you why there is need to do a proper overhaul from the presidency downwards.
“It also calls to question the capacity of her husband to govern.
“Where is the man we elected to govern?
“He is missing in action. That, for me, is the more troubling issue
Recall that Aisha Buhari had called on governors, ministers to rise to their work in the country as regard to delivering governance, adding that things are getting out of hand.
