The undeniable truth is that 99% of Nigeria’s current challenges stem from General Muhammadu Buhari’s presidency, marked by the highest levels of incompetence and recklessness, resulting in eight years of devastation.

The consequences of his actions and inactions are what we are now experiencing.

 Tinubu’s confused tenure exacerbated matters by adding fuel to Buhari’s already consuming fire, unlike what an Obi presidency could have achieved in alleviating them by extinguishing the flames. Is it appropriate for Buhari to roam freely amidst the catastrophic damage he inflicted upon this nation?

Meanwhile, let’s refrain from solely blaming Nigerians from all regions for mistakenly voting for Tinubu. The reality is that Nigerians transcended religion and ethnicity to vote for Obi, only to be deceived by the same heartless individuals—Buhari and INEC chief, Prof. Yakubu Mohammed.

Another institution equally culpable alongside Buhari is the judiciary. Let judicial officers stop this annoying pretense as if they live in another world.

How can reasonable men unreasonably search for self-evident truths and even bury them under the weight of technicality when found? I assert this with the utmost sense of responsibility.

.Obienyem, a lawyer and current affairs analyst, writes from Lagos.
