Civil rights activist and former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has accused outgoing President Muhammadu Buhari of setting traps for the incoming administration of the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

He made this allegation while highlighting the failures of the outgoing Buhari administration.

Sani, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th National Assembly, said Buhari planned to make his administration look better than that of his successor.

He also accused Buhari of leaving behind a country without any economic direction.

The former lawmaker said in a tweet, “He led the country without any economic direction. He presided over a government that failed to secure the lives of Nigerians; 63,000 dead, three million internally displaced persons and 366,000 refugees in neighbouring countries.

“He failed to restructure as he promised. He granted waivers to the rich and impoverished the poor. He closed the borders for those who import bags of rice on motorcycles and permitted those who use the ships.

“He built magical pyramids that disappeared after three days. He left incomplete projects with huge debts to service for decades.

“He enabled, enriched and reinforced a cabal for eight years. He appointed and retained failures and rewarded them with extensions. He was weak in taking decisions and running away when it’s tough.

“He has no house in London but made London his home. He left behind record inflation, record devaluation, record unemployment, record fall in GDP, record figures of poverty and record plunder of state resources.

“He left behind a nation with 60 million people suffering from mental illnesses. He is leaving behind the health workers on strike. He set up traps for the next government in order to make his own look better.”
