If Buhari Cannot Meet Nigeria’s Needs, He Should Hand Over to Me – Sule Lamido
Former governor of Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to come and take lessons on governance from him rather than subjecting Nigerians to excruciating hardship. At another point, he said the president should hand over to him.
“If he (Buhari) cannot ensure the provision of basic needs of Nigerians, tell him to hand over to me and see how I will source for the wherewithal to do it,” he said.
Lamido, speaking at the weekend, stated that there was no justifiable excuse for failing to provide basic necessities for the citizens and the President is only displaying his incompetence by making Nigerians experience untold hardship and blaming it on recession.
“President Buhari is simply incompetent on the provision of the welfare of the citizens because he was never ready for the job, and so, he lacks the capacity to source for the wherewithal to do it well to the satisfaction of Nigerians,” he said.
Using an analogy, the PDP chieftain stated, “Imagine a husband who, before marrying his wife, promised her that he would provide all her legal and legitimate needs according to the obligations of matrimony, only to confront the wife shortly after the wedding and tell her that he didn’t know that he would have to provide her ‘this’, and he has now realized that he cannot, and she should please bear with him; and the wife, because of the love she has for him, overlooks that limitation.”
“The following day, he confronts her again, explaining his inability to provide another basic need, pleading with her to overlook it, and she does so; again he comes to her another day to say he didn’t know that he also has to provide so and so to her, and now he has realized he cannot; it should dawn on the wife that he simply cannot discharge the obligations of matrimony to her, and it is legal and legitimate for her to seek divorce,” he said.
