President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has revealed that the president’s administration has been too heavily criticised because Nigerians expect too much from him.
In a statement released by the president’s aide on Sunday, April 22, 2018, he said the president gained power off the back of a lot of expectations whose weight has blinded many from recognising the impact he’s making in governance.
He wrote, “For President Buhari, who won with massive votes in 2015, his major challenge is to do as well as he did, or even better. He came to power with a lot of expectations and Nigerians had, justifiably placed very high hopes on him.
“As we said sometimes back, he as a consequence, has became a victim of the tyranny of expectations. The weight of unrealistic expectations has evidently blinded many of the people from seeing the revolutionary changes happening across the nation.
“Nigerians expected him to undo the damage in several decades of misgovernance and naturally, many are already feeling frustrated that he hadn’t done that in three years.”
What do you think?
Yay or Nay? Is Buhari really a victim of unrealistic expections like Garba Shehu said?
