Oby Ezekwesili has said President Muhammadu Buhari does not have the capacity to rule Nigeria, as he is contented with incompetence and failure.
Ezekwesili, who was in Calabar for consultations and to participate in the Carnival Calabar, said, “We can say that there is a broken state of affairs with our security establishments.
The reason is because President Buhari has shown himself as a leader who rewards incompetence and failure.
“You cannot have a security establishment where citizens and the military are killed and those who lead those establishments are rewarded instead of being made to account for that kind of failure, and it is not just one failure.
“It is serial failures that we have seen. So the President rewards incompetence and I am not surprised because he is incompetent himself but does not realise it”.
She also said that Buhari sees those that fail and extends their stay in offices in which they have failed.
“We have seen it with the military, we have now seen it with the police. How can the President even be thinking of retaining the Inspector General of Police (IG) after the expiration of his term in office? Is it for stellar performance?
“This is the IG that the President told the entire country did not go to Benue State where he had assigned him to go. What the President is essentially telling us is that Nigerians lives do not matter that much to him, otherwise, he should be very horrified at the level of killings.
“My greatest shock and one of the triggers for my deciding to run for election, not being politician as you all know, is that the debasement of the Nigerian life is the final straw that can bring about anarchy; for it to be that children should grow up in this society and just come to the understanding that killing a person is a normal thing, that you can just do it and there is no consequence. What kind of impunity is that?”
