I knew from the start Buhari can’t fix any of Nigeria’s problems – Yakassai

Elder statesman, Alhaji Tanko Yakasai, has explained that his reason for not supporting any of President Muhammadu Buhari’s presidential ambitions.

According to him, it was borne out of his long-held conviction that Buhari lacks the ability to fix Nigeria’s problems.

He had been vindicated, he said, noting that, the past five years of president Buhari’s administration has proven him right.

Yakasai said this while appearing on the video Conference organized by Governance Index on Friday, which was attended by close to 100 participants across the globe.

He said, “I have never supported Buhari. I have been against him because I felt he was not competent to handle the job, and I have been proven right.

“When President Muhammadu Buhari was elected, I was hoping that at least, we will get stable power all over the country. This is his fifth year. He has only two more active years because the last one year will be for election.

“I don’t know what are his plans, when will Kano get electricity to restore its industrial might, so that every man in Kano will be gainfully employed as a result of provision in Kano, likewise Enugu and Lagos among others? Those were the key issues from the time Buhari was elected and they are still the issues of today.”
