Former Deputy Governor of CBN, Dr Obadiah Mailafia
Friday, 4th June 2021: A former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr. Obadiah Mailafia, on Friday said that President Muhammadu Buhari has failed woefully in managing the economy, in the managing the security challenges of the country as well as in his anti-graft fight.
Mailafia spoke on Friday while featuring on a live interview programme of one of Nigeria’s national newspapers monitored in Ibadan by CEOAFRICA.
The Presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress in the last election also said the President failed in leadership and his foreign objectives policy.
He, however, gave the Buhari regime a pass mark in infrastructure because of some road projects the government has completed and are constructing.
But according to Mailafia, who said he has nothing personal with Buhari, “If you have F9 in seven subjects, I don’t think any tertiary institution or college of education can take you.”
Buhari of the All Progressives Congress was sworn in as Nigeria’s President in May 2015 after he defeated ex-President Goodluck Jonathan of the People’s Democratic Party in the 2015 general elections.
