We used to call Goodluck Jonathan clueless but I don't know what to call Buhari- Prof Akin Oyebode


A professor of International Law and Jurisprudence , Akin Oyebode has said,  "We used to call Goodluck Jonathan clueless but I don't know what to call Buhari".

The don said this during an interview session with The Punch newspaper conducted by TUNDE AJAJA.

Responding to questions he said...


Are you of the view that Nigeria should have wasted no time in signing the African Continental Free Trade Agreement ?
As the largest concentration of black people on earth , we have a stake in the African Union . That is why some of us were perplexed that Buhari was dithering over signing the African Continental Free Trade Agreement . Finally , push came to shove and he had to sign . I don ’ t know his calculation but he likes passing the buck . Someone of great insight and foresight would have signed that agreement earlier as a vote for African unification , but again you can ’ t exceed your limitation . If you are not properly schooled in African politics and if you look at how long it’ s taking him to have a cabinet , you put a question mark on his claim to fame as a leader . That was why a country of this standing , worth and promise was like perambulating and sleepwalking on the issue. We used to call Goodluck Jonathan clueless but I don ’ t know what to call Buhari . Wednesday made it five months that he won election and it’ s about two months that he was sworn in , and even though he assured us he would no longer be ‘ baba - go - slow ’ , one just feels sorry for Nigeria . Look at what President Paul Kagame is doing in Rwanda . The enthusiasm and dynamism that one expects from a country of this worth have been lacking and when you now have a cabinet of lacklustre mediocre in charge of affairs, you just hang your head in shame . Quite seriously , I don ’ t know what ( Vice- President Yemi ) Osinbajo is still doing there. He is far smarter because I know him ; he was my student . A brilliant guy like that should distance himself from mediocrity .
