President Muhammadu Buhari has failed as a leader, former Cross River State Governor and presidential aspirant, Donald Duke, is convinced.
He said the Buhari-led regime was a government of many failings, disconnected from reality.
Duke, who has declared his intention to contest the Presidency, said the Buhari administration was not ready for leadership and that was why it took the President nearly six months to appoint ministers.
The presidential aspirant said this during an interview with DW Africa.
When asked why he thought he would be a better President than Buhari, he said, “Because I see such obvious failings. I see a leadership that is steeped in the past; that has refused to evolve with a nation that is predominantly a nation of young aspiring people and still doing things the way they were done many years ago and did not work.
“I think our leadership in the country today is totally out of tune with the current reality of our nation. There is disconnect somewhere so when you have a leadership that blames its young people for instance of not striving enough or of being lazy, there is a disconnect because the tools to make them achieve their aspiration have not been provided.”
