An elder statesman and chieftain of the Afenifere group, Chief Ayo Adebanjo has slammed the government of President Muhammadu Buhari as grossly inadequate.
He further urged Nigerians to pray for divine intervention in the affairs of the nation so better times can be experienced in the country.
The elder statesman reportedly said this on Friday while speaking during an interview on several other issues concerning the country on the occasion of his 92nd birthday.
Chief Adebanjo compared the current times with what Nigerians experienced during the time of the military regime of General Sani Abacha.
“This government is grossly inefficient and I have been saying that for a long time. Is it not ridiculous that a government that cannot distribute voters card for three years now said it has distributed billions of naira to Nigerians in one week? These people are rogues.”
“We are in it already; we are in the hands of God. We are only praying to God to get us out of this mess. Their matter has gone beyond ‘be careful’. God will rescue us in His mercy. The God that sends Abacha away will send Buhari away at his own good time”, he said in a chat with Daily Independent.
News Nigeria reports President Buhari, who is currently serving his second term as Nigeria’s democratically elected leader will complete his tenure in office in 2023 and is not eligible for re-election as stipulated in the country’s constitution.
