The Economist magazine in an article titled ‘Crude Tactics’, has described Nigeria’s former president Goodluck Jonathan as an ineffectual buffoon. President Muhammadu Buhari, who had been dissed earlier, was praised for his efforts while in office.
“In the eight months since Mr Buhari arrived at Aso Rock, the presidential digs, the homicidal jihadists of Boko Haram have been pushed back into the bush along Nigeria’s borders. The government has cracked down on corruption, which had flourished under the previous president, Goodluck Jonathan, an ineffectual buffoon who let politicians and their cronies fill their pockets with impunity. Lai Mohammed, a minister, reckons that just 55 people stole $6.8 billion from the public purse over seven recent years.”
