The Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari has said that Nigeria’s democratic process is too slow for his liking.
He made the statement in a brief interview on the state-run Nigerian Television Authority on Tuesday 17th December, 2019 to commemorate his 77th birthday.
He said, “When I came in uniform, I collected those who were leading, took them to Kirikiri (Maximum Security Prison) and told them they were guilty until they could prove themselves innocent.
I put based on almost all the geopolitical zones committees to examine them. Those that were found to have lived beyond their means, the balance were taken and were given to the states.
But I myself was arrested, detained and they were given back what they have stolen from the economy.
So under this system of government which is supposed to be more accountable, it is too slow for my liking but I have to follow it.
