Buhari Under Fire For Expressing Doubts

Buhari Under Fire For Expressing Doubts

In the space of 1 month, President Muhammadu Buhari, has expressed doubts to take on the challenges ahead of him and this has sparked reaction from Nigerians on social media.

It would be recalled that on May 6, 2015, President Buhari expressed his nervousness over Nigerians’ expectations of him, which he described as Buhari said this at a meeting with newly elected APC governors at Defence House, Abuja.

Just a month after, President Buhari, who will turn 73 in December, admitted again that age would limit his performance as Nigeria’s president.

This comment by the president has generated fuss on social media as Nigerians are beginning to wonder if the President has what it takes to execute the changes he promised.
