Buhari is failing, he won’t return to heaven in clean robes, says ex-Minister Dalung

Former Minister of Sports, Barrister Solomon Dalung has pointed out what he described as the major problems of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Dalung said that because of the problems, Buhari won’t return to heaven in clean robes.


Dalung spoke at the Army Resource Centre, Abuja, FCT, during the presentation of a book entitled “Buhari in Us” written by Haruna Abdullahi.

He noted that a majority of the people in Buhari’s administration did not seem to work along the President’s ideology but rather preferred to fold their arms and watch him fail.

He said: “When I finally met Mr President, he said, ‘I know you are somebody who can tell someone how it is. I would want you to tell me anytime, anything however bitter or however hard it is.’

“My covenant with him is to tell him whenever he is right and also whenever he is wrong. The President has remained the man I know since then.

“Buhari has not changed. But Buhari is like an angel who is invited to dance in the mud and Nigerians expect him to return to heaven with a clean robe. Certainly, it would not happen.

“The second problem of Buhari is that he believes so much in himself and insists on doing what is right. But he also does not believe that the environment in which he operates is different from what he is.

“The last problem is that Muhammadu Buhari is one of the most unfortunate leaders who meant well for the country but so many people who are supposed to help him succeed are just folding their arms watch him and say ‘do it let’s see!’

“And it is the ‘do-it#let’s-see’ syndrome that has made the Buhari government subject of attacks from Nigerians….”
