Lawal Qudus: The Many Unforced Errors Of Mr President

The Many Unforced Errors Of Mr President

Mr president once announced that he was the most cursed president on earth!
Coming from a leader who rode on public goodwill to ascend the throne, one is left wondering how a man could descend from the peak to the trough of public affection within so short a period of time.
I doubt if any past Nigerian leader has been bestowed with the levelof public goodwill Nigerians gave GEJ (which he squandered).
When a leader has to rescind his decision following vituperations from his followers on an occasion he is termed the People’s Leader (on two occasions), he could be addressed The Listening Leader. But when almost every decision of his is followed by popular outcries, he needs to review his foot-prints as a leader. He certainly has lost touch with the masses.
A government that has had to rescind more than 5 major decisions within a period of 2yrs, needs an urgent overhaul of its decision making process.
-Ban of international soccer
-Call for 6-7yrs single tenure
-Fuel subsidy removal
-5000 notes etc
Unfortunately these decisions do not arise from situations in which the president has to choose between the devil and the deep blue sea. They are decisions that require spinal level of reasoning.
With the rate at which this ridiculous decisions are being made, it seems this presidency just has a penchant for gaffes.
And just when you think the absurdity has reached its nadir, the government slams you with another descent down the valley of blunders.
The latest in the series being DSP ALAMI’s Presidential Pardon.
What is next in oga’s bag of balderdash?
