There is no doubt that since May 29th 2015, when Muhammadu Buhari assumed the reins of governance as Nigeria’s President, little has happened to convince me that he is the Messiah Nigerians have been waiting for. From his remarks of 95percent and 5percent in respect of political patronage according to the voting pattern during the 2015 general election to his caustic and acerbic triumphal display of wrestling power from the “infidel”, Buhari has, at each…
