Take responsibility for your colossal failure, Timi Frank tells Buhari

TIMI FRANK

Firebrand political activist and former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to take responsibility for his colossal failure.

In a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja, the outspoken activist wondered why Buhari has chosen to “lie during the Holy month of Ramadan” and also noted that any leader who completely abdicates responsibility for his action or inaction cannot by any stretch of imagination be said to be a good leader

Frank also called on Buhari not to blame his incompetence on the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, nor the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara.

“Blame your lethargy, flip-flops and incompetence for your failure, not Saraki and Dogara,” Frank said.

He added: “It is you the people elected as President to exercise executive powers and not Saraki and Dogara whose duties are to supervise the passage of legislations.

“Any leader who completely abdicates responsibility for his action or inaction cannot by any stretch of imagination be said to be a good leader. If at the twilight of a four year tenure Mr. President is shopping for new scapegoats, at what point would he realize that it was under his government that Nigeria became the poverty capital of the world?

“How many jobs has this administration created for our teaming unemployed youths. It is unfortunate that Nigerians got a man whose archaic policies and personal ineptitude led a once thriving economy into a tailspin and perpetual downward slide.

“It is further regrettable that Buhari who claims to be a man of integrity has failed all integrity indicators in leadership and personal character of being true to self.

“Only last week, the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) alerted Nigerians that will soon resume its suspended strike following the refusal of the Buhari to honour agreement it reached with the union early this year,” he added.
