'Buhari lacks the capacity to rule Nigeria' - Professor Nwabueze

Professor Ben Nwabueze, a renowed Lawyer and President of the Patriots, a revered group of Elder statesmen in Nigeria, says President Buhari lacks the intellectual capacity to rule a complex country like Nigeria. Nwabueze said this in an interview with The Sun newspaper.
"I do not think that it is a question of not being prepared. Don't forget that the 2015 election was his fourth time of contesting, of making an attempt at being President. He tried to be president for 12 years. So, he had more than enough time to prepare himself if he had the capacity. So, it is not that he was not prepared. The fact is that he lacks the capacity to govern as the problems are beyond him.
Even if you give him 20 years to prepare, it would still be beyond his capacity. Nigeria is a very complex country. I have told you before, that we have 389 ethnic nationalities. The complexities and the issues involved in ruling such a country are huge. Leading such a complex country is an intellectual issue and Buhari does not have the intellectual capacity to comprehend what it means to govern the country"he said

Anonymous said...


This Ben no be elder at all. He is a small pikin for brain.

Elders don't look at a case at the surface but in absolute terms ie holistically. Why are we in this mess? Because Jonathan and his cohorts bled us dead. They finished the treasury, they destroyed institutions, they polarized polity and religion, they broke us on ethnic lines.

Buhari is the best thing to happen to us now. He may not be perfect but he is miles ahead of Ben the ethnic jingoist. Anything that is no Igboistic is not good to Ben. A bloody tribalist.

As a professor, I expected Ben to know that it will take a some time befor anyone can reform and correct a rot that has eaten deep into Nigeria economy and dont forget that there are many people also sabotaging his effort for their personal gain. So if u say Buhari does not have the capacity, pls tell us who does, and if u do why didnt u contest or better still show us the blueprint u have to reform Nigeria. Buhari is building a process and when that process start to work a lot of things will fall in place and Nigerians will know the difference. Lets just give Buhari some time.

Anonymous said...

you couldn't have said it better Prof. The aboki does not have the capacity both intellectual and otherwise to rule Nigeria. The apc in general are a bunch of confused people who only wanted power at all cost. Now they have it, they seem completely lost as to how to use it for the betterment of the country. The first quarter of the year is almost gone and we don't have a budget yet, there seems to be no end soon to the fuel crisis we are experiencing.

Sir, I agree with you 100%. GMB obviously lacks the intellectual capacity to lead/rule. Nigeria is so complex for someone with purely military background to govern in a democratic suspension. Another wasted 4 years. We will keep searching and I believe God will someday bless this country with a right leader to move this enormously endured nationertainly it is not Buhari, Jonathan or OBJ. It just wish that my generation is not wasted.

Isek said...

The professor should tell us which of the people before Buhari met the bill so we can invite him/them back. Ruling Nigerian is 'complex' because we are not patriotic (we are more interested in our tribes than in the country) and we lack discipline. I prefer a leader who makes sincere mistakes (errors) than one who deliberately takes decisions based on selfish or group interest. Mistakes of the heart as against the head!

@OMIDAN ABBY: I guess your realities have changed since Buhari assumed office. How is the old man's view on Buhari a blasphemy? Is Buhari God or something sacred that cannot be criticised. Are you saying that the old man does not have the right to express his views on national issues ?. Must you people read tribal meaning into everything and at the same time against splitting.

BonaParte NN said...

Well said.
I remember vividly.
Prof Nwabueze is a legal luminary and too old for tribal sentiments. It's not even an issue of the past administration or the bad economy this new one is over seeing.
It's a question of discretion in handling issues so as not to exacerbate them, knowing where to talk, when to keep quiet, who not to address, knowing when to call an SOS on a situation, how to handle the citizens. Those things lead to prosperity and averts war.

It's this same discretion(in a different way) that Mr Donald Trump lacks to rule a world power like America.

Unknown said...

This profession can kiss my ass....... With all his professorship all these years, what contribution he he made to the collective well being of Nigerians, he should go and call Jonathan, the one who has real capacity to "rule Nigeria" professor ko, professor ni, don't respect yourself and go and sit down.

Any discerning person one who listened to Buhari's inaugural speech at his swearing-in ceremony will know he had no prepared detailed plan for governance despite the ample time he had to prepare himself.
This never-the-less is not a tragedy. If a leader is able to identify and assemble capable an sound minds to run his government there will be success. Buhari's success or failure will be determined by those who he appoints to work with him.

Is it you that can rule Nigeria? We want a leader and not a ruler. No country can be governed by one man not to talk of the complexity of the Nigerian state. Buhari will do his best and someone else will continue. Even Obama is not the only one governing America. He needs to put down strong system or institutions that run itself.
