The Financial Times, on January 31, 2022, published an article titled “What is Nigeria’s Government For?”, where the writer, David Piling stated that, “The presidential elections of February 2023 will draw the curtain on eight years of the administration of Muhammadu Buhari, on whose somnolent watch Nigeria has sleepwalked closer to disaster.”
Piling continued, “Buhari has overseen two terms of economic slump, rising debt and a calamitous increase in kidnapping and banditry—the one thing you might have thought a former general could control.”
Reacting to the report, Omoyele Sowore has taken to social media to remind Financial Times of other incompetencies of the Buhari’s administration which were overlooked in the recent report.
In a Facebook post, Sowore wrote, “Financial Times forgot to include that Muhammadu Buhari engaged in unprecedented violation of human rights which included but not limited to extra-judicial killings, mass murders, enforced disappearances as well as religious bigotry/extremism, thuggery, election rigging, massive corruption and theft of state resources amongst others. Above all, Muhammadu Buhari is the most divisive figure the country of Nigeria has ever known.”
