Shehu Sani, a former federal lawmaker and sociopolitical activist, has observed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2022 Democracy Day speech was exactly the same he had delivered in previous years.
According to Sani, the President’s speech is coated with empty promises just as those of previous years
One of the key points of Buhari’s speech was when the President said he lived daily in grief and worry over victims of terrorist attacks in Nigeria and this was not the first time he has expressed grief over the security situation of the country with little or nothing done to bring it under control.
Buhari concluded his speech, being his very last as President, by further assuring of his commitment to protect Nigeria and Nigerians from all enemies from within and outside.
He also promised Nigerians a free, fair, transparent electoral process come 2023.
And in reacting, the former lawmaker, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District at the Senate, tweeted, “The President’s democracy day speech is not different from all his previous speeches, other than this one is the last; full of assurances and promises and empty in delivery. Anyway, this time he was shy to blame ‘16 years of misrule’.
