Buhari's Administration is loosing direction- Pro- Buhari Group

President Muhammadu Buhari’s popularity seem to be waning as a group hitherto known for supporting his government, yesterday, April 15, accused the government of deviating from its original course.

According to The Guardian, speakers at the event identified corruption, epileptic power supply, unemployment, bad economy, as the major issues after almost one year of the Buhari administration.

Leader of the of group, Dr Ope Banwo stated that the president should not be allowed to fall into the same situation his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan fell into when his supporters refrained from telling him the truth. 

Banwo said: ”I am one of those people spending their money and energy fighting for Buhari’s government, right now am not happy with the direction the country is taking in different areas.”  

”They say those who do not learn from history are bound to repeat the mistakes of history. So the government must learn from the mistakes of the previous administration.

”One of those things that led to the downfall of the Jonathan’s administration was that those who sincerely believed in the government never told the former president the truth until it was too late, and that is one of the things we are determined will never happen with the change government. 

”I do not need to prove my commitment to the Buhari government because I have been a die-hard Buharist even before the election, touring places to ensure the success of the president at the election. 

”We felt that the government is losing direction. So, as part of my own way to make sure the government never derail from its change mantra, we continue to call on the government, spending our resources to make sure he is on the right track.” 

Speaking on unemployment in the country, Banwo said: 

”The government is doing well, but the government performance on employment is poor. The president must be reminded that he promised 740,000 jobs in first year, but we got more than 740,000 layoffs.

During her contribution, founder, Consumer Advocacy Foundation of Nigeria (CAFON) Mrs Sola Salako said: ”I would rate the government as being fair, but after one year, we are not where we are expected to be.”  

Meanwhile, as Nigerians continue to groan under harsh economic conditions, President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that his trip to China yielded about $6 billion investment for Nigeria. 

The president posited that his one-week trip would positively impact on key sectors of the Nigerian economy including power, solid minerals, agriculture, housing and rail transportation. 

In a related development, a report surfaced in the media earlier today chronicling how churches are experiencing financial downturn as Nigeria’s economic crisis bites harder across the nation. 

The report stated that members have now turned to their church leaders for financial support towards feeding, accommodation and children’s tuition.
