OPINION

Buhari is distracting Nigerians
 By Odimegwu Onwumere

Many people had thought that General Muhammadu Buhari would pay much attention to giving Nigerians good governance, but for nearly three months in power, all that Nigerians have got are distractions from the once Army Major General. Each day does not pass by without reading Buhari on the newspapers of how he would probe this sector or the other that worked in the ex-President Goodluck Jonathan government. In short, Buhari is distracting Nigerians with his loquaciousness of probing Jonathan.


It is irritating much as it is a distraction upon distraction everywhere from the Buhari presidency. The height of it was that Buhari spent a month, before packing into Aso Rock, the seat of power, after he was inaugurated as president.

Buhari's definition of democracy is not suited in the global democracies. It is tiresome and he would say that a Barack Obama stayed for a while before forming his cabinet. Then you ask if America is Nigeria. One can see that we are losing all sense of reason because of Buhari; losing all sense of shame, where we were being told that a 'Mr. Integrity' is on the throne.

Nigerians are getting in the way amidst the economy that is out of control, while the government and its All Progressives Congress (APC) members continue to rant. In earnest, Buhari is not here to help, but to distract. Nigerians have found themselves distracted, because the president does not want to contact the people; he wants to do the job all alone.

We are seeing a government that has kept its phone ringing at the acme of its work. What a way of calling for distraction!

It is evidence that Buhari has gone to work thinking of his personality (not Nigerians), having emotional conflicts, by prevailing over all Nigerians with distractions and making himself an unhappy man; and he wants Nigerians to be unhappy in poverty, forgetting that one can only be happy when he or she has disabused his or her mind of all other distractions.

As if a Hilary Duff had Buhari in mind in the following words: It's hard to stay true to yourself and what you want in life when there are so many distractions and so much craziness going on around you.

However, a national chieftain of the APC, the party that produced Buhari as president, in a recent public outing said that Buhari's failed-two months in not showing Nigerians were the compass of his government was navigating to, were being spent on reviewing how the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ran Nigeria within the years it ruled the country.

Imagine that!

Ruling Nigeria as an Army official he once was, Buhari has refused to listen to calls from here and there asking him not to be distracted. But what the persons who have made this call did not say was that Buhari is the one distracting Nigerians with his 'snail crawling' approach to governance and overbearing in being ‘Mr. Integrity’.

The country is stashed and some persons were ignorantly saying and writing that Buhari can lead Nigeria without a cabinet. The irony is that Buhari has spent much energy looking for those who allegedly ate the national cake without any hope in place that he will bake new cakes. 

This government is edging towards twilight and no hope of seeing rays of light. Nigerians are overwhelmed that Buhari is yet to make headway.  He is wearing Nigerians down with his unproductive government. His much talk is doing little to make Nigeria better.

Buhari has gotten into the presidency he shouldn’t; he is obsessed with the means and not the end. No government that started on that note ever succeeded. A board would always wear down when it focuses its strength on distracting its members. How could Buhari react to everything PDP and Jonathan?

Sometimes some of us ask if this is APC’s pattern of governance: Being very busy and very busy without any action. It’s sad that Nigerians have known that the APC’s ‘change’ and ‘good governance’ it promised Nigerians, ware flukes.

The party which its members called themselves progressives is creating vision, strategic plan, and policies, but only on how to run Jonathan and the PDP down. Does Buhari know that distraction such as his cost the U.S. businesses $588 billion per year, as a 2007 study by Basex estimated?

In the world of management, productivity will never increase if the owners and caretakers of a business do not limit the level at which distractions flow into their firm. Just as email is said to be the biggest distractions managers face among employees these days no matter its usefulness, the war against corruption in Nigeria, has become one dangerous slogan Buhari is distracting Nigerians with.


Let us ask Buhari that if a worker does not put much energy to his or her work in the morning is it in the evening he or she will put that energy. It is palpable to say that Buhari has a disorganised office desk and this can be very distracting to management. His government is disorganised without a cabinet. So, he cannot think and plan well. A company without a board is disorganised.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
