The Aare Onakakanfo of Yoruba land, Gani Adams has laid the blames for the problems facing Nigeria squarely at the feet of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Yoruba generalissimo said Buhari has made many mistakes as the leader of Nigeria and plunged the nation into its current predicaments.
Adams was quoted to have made the submission during an interview with BBC Yoruba.
According to him, “there are many mistakes the Buhari’s administration has made, and it has led to our problems. For a country to be peaceful, it is in the hand of the leader.”
He also submitted that it was wrong for the Buhari government to have rejected and dismissed the recommendations of the national confab which in his view, could have remedied some of nation’s predicaments.
Meanwhile, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commended the Senate for rejecting the nomination of a presidential aide, Lauretta Onochie, as a national commissioner in the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Naija News earlier reported that Onochie was rejected following the report by the Senate Committee on (INEC), Senator Kabir Gaya who said her nomination breaches Federal Character principles.
Kabir Gaya cited Section 14 (1) 3 of the Constitution, stating that somebody was already a Commissioner from her zone, and the law remains clear about that.
He added that there is currently a serving commissioner from Delta state, where Onochie hails from.
But in a statement on Tuesday issued by the National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP described the Senate’s rejection of Onochie as the triumph of the Nigerian people over the barefaced attempt by the Buhari led-APC administration to corrupt and hijack the commission ahead of 2023 elections.
The party asserted that the rejection has saved the nation from a very serious crisis as well as salvaged INEC and the entire Nigerian electoral process from ruinous pollution that would have led to the collapse of the democratic order.
