Most Nigerians are experiencing the worst economic crisis of their lifetime, as the country is officially in recession. President Muhammadu Buhari, the nation’s leader, ran the affairs of the country for over six months without a cabinet, after taking over from Dr Goodluck Jonathan in May, 2015.
When he eventually formed a cabinet, he’s sheer ineptitude of an economic plan only worsened things for the masses. The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osibanjo, who is ostensibly in charge of the economy seems to be overwhelmed and can only sing hymns to the Lord.
Professor Osibanjo, recently organised a group of Nigeria’s former leaders to sing O Lord Our Help In Ages Past. In a deeply religious nation like Nigeria this kind of propaganda will work, albeit for a few days.
But the question is: When will President Buhari start to tackle Nigeria’s economic challenges and stop his numerous sanctimonious propaganda? Even his wife recently told the BBC, that if things continue the way they are, she won’t campaign for him if he runs again.
