The Next Level After “LIFELESS” Is To Reboot And Get Nigeria Working Again!

👤 By Danjuma Aliyu, DENISAURUS News

Recent findings by Brookings Institute shows that Nigeria under the regime of President Muhammadu Buhari has overtaken India as the poverty capital of the world.

The data which was published in October 2018 revealed that over 87 million Nigerians are living in extreme poverty. It is sad!

But that is not the only sad news about President Buhari, a “LIFELESS” President as described by his counterpart in the United State.

The 75-year-old who spent an unprecedented three months on medical trip in the United Kingdom promised to end subsidy but during his regime it has taken a new turn.

Nigerians are not better off now than they were in 2015. In fact, Nigerians are less well off. The price of petrol is N145 compared to N87 in 2015 when Goodluck Jonathan was still the President.

In short, everything has fallen apart under President Buhari, alias “Mr Integrity” who has seen the corruption indices of the country go down.

Despite promising to kill corruption, under his watch, Transparency International (TI), ranked Nigeria low in its 2017 Corruption Perception Index (CPI).

Nigeria scored 148th out of 180. The country also scored 28 out 100, in its CPI, a very poor rating, unlike during the tenure of the past President when it scored 25.

DENISAURUS News has constantly argued that the fight against corruption was heading for failure if a man like Ibrahim Mustafa Magu was left in charge of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

In 2016, the editor of this paper received a tip off about the “corrupt” police officer heading the EFCC.

The expose which revealed that Mr Magu was living a double life was forwarded to the Presidency. It did not seem as though the President who promised to stop corruption was interested!

The National Assembly took some steps to do something with the information given to them. That information about Mr Magu’s corrupt and paradoxical nature was later confirmed by the Department of State Security Services, DSS.

An erstwhile director of the DSS, Lawal Daura who wrote an indicting report to the Senate and proved reasons why Mr Magu’s nomination as fourth substantive chairman of the Commission should be rejected, stated that Mr Magu would be a liability to the corruption fight.

Mr Magu, a perennial offender, as predicted by the former head of the secret police has proven to be a liability to the corruption fight.

The suspension of the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit, NFIU from the Egmont Financial server was a clear example of his unprofessionalism and how it cost the country in the fight against corruption and insecurity.

So not only did the corruption fight fail, President Buhari also failed to lead the fight insurgency from the front.

This month alone, over a hundred soldiers were slaughtered by Boko Haram in Metele, Borno State. Our gallant men who gave their lives for their country perished because they did not have “adequate weapons” and ammunition.

Till now the President is yet to say anything about the killings. This was the man who promised to lead the war against terror from the front.

Instead of prioritising this issue, Mr President is solely focused on a second term bid.

But, this paper whose editor campaigned rigorously for President Buhari in 2015 believes that the country needs a reset. President Buhari’s promise to take the country to the “Next Level” in 2019, is typical of the APC, A PARTY PROMISING CHANGE, yet the change promised never materialising!

Having failed to deliver his cardinal promise to secure lives and kill corruption, Nigerians can’t afford another chance with a party that’s Always Protecting Cows!

What Nigeria need is to reboot – and get working again!
