In an article titled ‘Crude Tactics’, Economist magazine described Nigerian former president, Goodluck Jonathan as an ineffectual buffoon. The article reads in parts:
- “In the eight months since Mr Buhari arrived at Aso Rock, the presidential digs, the homicidal jihadists of Boko Haram have been pushed back into the bush along Nigeria’s borders.
The government has cracked down on corruption, which had flourished under the previous president, Goodluck Jonathan, an ineffectual buffoon who let politicians and their cronies fill their pockets with impunity.
Lai Mohammed, a minister, reckons that just 55 people stole $6.8 billion from the public purse over seven recent years.”
