Yoruba Ronu Leadership Forum, a socio-cultural group, says the allegation of incompetence against the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration by some prominent leaders is deceptive.

Akin Malaolu, the group’s secretary general, on Saturday issued a statement in reaction to criticisms of the government by leaders of Afenifere, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Northern Elders Forum (NEF) and Pan-Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF).

According to NAN, while listing some “achievements” of the current administration, Malaolu asked leaders of the aforementioned groups to be objective and avoid “inciting” remarks.

“For leaders of the groups to be united in passing jaundiced judgments on the administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is unfair,” he said.


“It shows lack of accuracy in measuring achievements of Buhari and his team at this material time in our national history.

“Such statement is least expected at a time when security agencies are recording successes in arrest of masterminds of mindless killings and abductions across the country, including the Chibok school girls.

“Military and other security agencies need to be encouraged for such performance by any patriotic group, not condemned in a ploy to spite the federal government.


“Cry of incompetence, high unemployment rate as claimed by the groups show the absence of accuracy and wisdom in their measurement of the nation’s recent achievements.

“Presently, the government has been able to start Ajaokuta Steel Rolling Mills after decades of neglect by past governments.

“Buhari’s government has a good show in agricultural development, a standard growth in power supply generation, a favourable increase in railway density and many others.

“The recent unveiling of the national carrier — Nigerian Air — which is capable of boosting economic development through positive multiplier effects on virtually everything is another plus.


“We urge leaders not to be allowed to be used as agents of division or help to create unneeded incitements that will do the nation no good.

“The nation is greater than politics and that alone must be uppermost in leaders’ minds.”
