A former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, says former President, Muhammadu Buhari’s government will be largely remembered for unprecedented debt burden and other disturbingly troubling events and occurrences.
Sani, in a tweet on Sunday, said thousands of people were killed and others became internally-displaced persons and refugees during Buhari’s eight years in office.
He added that the Buhari administration enriched those he called a gang of parasitic cabal and their families, while impoverishing millions of people.
Under Buhari, Sani alleged that heads of ministries and security agencies operated what he termed a regime of fiscal indiscipline and industrial scale thievery.
Sani was reacting to a statement by Buhari’s former spokesperson, Shehu Garba, who had claimed that his principal’s herd of cattle had not increased even after eight years in office.
He said such tales of modesty, spartan lifestyle and frugality are in sharp contrast with the widespread corruption and cronyism that plagued his government
In a veiled reference to Buhari, he said: “His Government left a legacy of unprecedented debt burden, millions of IDPs and refugees, thousands slaughtered by terrorists. His Government enriched a gang of parasitic cabal and their families and impoverished millions of people.
“Under him, heads of MDAs and security agencies operated a regime of fiscal indiscipline and industrial scale thievery. Now we are told about the stories of his cows, sainthood and palour.
“Are we supposed to stand on the graves of the victims of his failures and clap for him or what?”
