Buhari Did Well, He Did What Jonathan And His South Eastern Military Chiefs Couldn’t Do – Usman Yusuf

Published by admin on

According to The Sun, Former Chief Executive of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Prof. Usman Yusuf, has criticized President Bola Tinubu’s first year in office, stating that Nigerians have not experienced significant improvements during this period. Yusuf’s assessment highlights ongoing concerns about the country’s leadership and its impact on the populace.

Addressing the issue of national security, Yusuf emphasized that military intervention alone cannot resolve the country’s insecurity problems. He argued that effective solutions must be locally driven, as every crime has local roots. This perspective challenges the previous administration’s heavy reliance on military solutions to combat widespread violence and unrest.

Reflecting on the tenure of former President Muhammadu Buhari, Yusuf acknowledged his successes in liberating local government areas from Boko Haram. However, he criticized Buhari’s administration for neglecting other security threats such as banditry in the North West and North Central regions and the violence in the South East. Yusuf’s comments underscore his long-standing stance that Buhari left Nigeria in a more precarious security situation than when he assumed office.

He said: “To be fair to President Buhari whom I have been a big critic of, he did exceptionally well in fighting Boko Haram by liberating all LGAs from the terrorists. So, he did what President Goodluck Jonathan and his South Eastern military chiefs (to borrow from your north, south lingo) couldn’t do.

Having said that, President Buhari and his security team took their eyes off other security challenges like banditry in the North West and North Central and the scourge of ‘unknown gunmen’ inflicting terror in the South East.

I have been on record as one of the few Nigerians that have been vocal about the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari left Nigeria less secure than he met it.
