The former Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Solomon Dalung, has described the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari as a “failure”.
Dalung said the Buhari government failed woefully to meet Nigerians’ expectations and fulfil the promises to address the security situation, revamp the economy and fight corruption.
Speaking during an interview with Trust Radio, Dalung, who served under Buhari’s administration, said Buhari failed to fulfil the promises made to Nigerians during his campaign in 2015.
Dealing said as a founding member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), he has the responsibility to speak the truth because he is not a hypocrite.
He said, “We failed to meet our expectations, and I am not hypocritical because as a major stakeholder who campaigned vigorously in 2015 and went to the nooks and crannies of the north, of all the promises we made, we fulfilled none of them.
“The political covenant we had with Nigerians while campaigning was that we were going to address the security situation; we were going to revamp the economy; and we were going to give corruption a major technical blow so that we could minimize it to the barest minimum.
“Looking back, reflecting and evaluating the situation as it is today, we failed woefully.”
Dalung described Buhari as a very honest leader who believed that the people around him were honest, but got his name dragged in the mud by the people he believed in.
The former minister believed that the former President is currently living in regret by trusting those around him.
He said, “He (Buhari) is a very honest man who believed that everybody around him was an honest person, he brought them and trusted them. Today, I believe he is living in regret.
“They have dragged his name and integrity not only into the mud and they’ve reduced his image.”
Dealing said the Buhari administration recorded modest progress between 2015 and 201, because “insecurity was not as bad as it is currently.
He added: “Banditry and terrorism got minimized in terms of attacks, but it’s still flourishing, the complete change of dynamics in the security situation worse than ever before in the history of this country, and is a remarkable failure and indictment too on the APC because these were not part the democratic covenant they had with Nigerians.”
