Dr. Junaid Mohammed, has appraised the 18-month administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, returning with a verdict that it has not performed well and that the remaining months of the present administration is not going to get any better for Nigerians.
Junaid said both APC and PDP were no options for Nigerians in 2019 election.
Making this statement in an interview with Saturday Sun, he maintained that, “The crowd around Buhari has nothing to offer,”adding that the country has been “badly shortchanged” by the people who the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, said are calling the shots in her husband’s presidency.
Aisha had declared in an interview with the BBC Hausa Service, revealing that the President “does not know” most of the top officials he has appointed, and that the government had been hijacked by some individuals deciding presidential appointments.
Reacting to this, the Kano-born politician said: “I have received calls from my friends from the Southern part of the country, telling me they don’t know our women can be that daring to speak the way Madam Buhari did, and I just laughed. Are they saying the air we breathe in the North, is different from theirs or what? We also have to look at the culture.
“There is nothing she did, which is wrong, because she is playing politics, the way her husband is playing it. And the truth is that the country has been badly shortchanged by the people she mentioned and who we all know.
“If you have not elected someone, why should you keep one’s mouth shut when the person is exercising political power? This individual is not a government appointee, yet, he wields more powers than the President. We elective Buhari, but this individual even uses the presidential jets, more than the person we willingly elected to exercise political power. And if the President’s wife is now grumbling, what is wrong with that?”
Despite talking regarding the failings of the Buhari government, Mohammed however, asserted that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, should not be an option for Nigerians in 2019, insisting that the opposition party must be denied the chance to return to power.
His words, “in life, as well as in political life, you must be ready to pay the price for your own political mistakes, and the only way i know people are made to pay a political price in a democracy is to deny them the opportunity to return to power or get them out of power, if they are in power. As far as i know, I do not see the deliverables of this country, through the PDP.”
The Russian-trained medical doctor went on to encourage Nigerians to begin planning the removal of the current administration, through constitutional means.
Junaid added: “I think those who are concerned about 2019, should please start getting alliances across, and start planning of how to bring down the APC government, through constitutional means, and to also make sure they deny the PDP, a second chance of ruling Nigeria again.
“APC is not doing well; I don’t think Buhari is going to do any better. The people around Buhari have nothing to offer,” Muhammed said.
