Ben Nwabueze, a constitutional lawyer of some renown, professor of law and former Minister for Education, has finally said something that readers of Naijiant.com should be well aware of and should be clear to any discerning Nigerian by now – President Muhammadu Buhari lacks the intellectual capacity to rule Nigeria.
In an interview with the Sun newspaper Nwabueze said: “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.”
