Elder Statesman and Leader of the Pan-Niger Delta Forum, Chief Edwin Clark, has said that the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari set the country back five decades in his eight years in office.
Clark said the Buhari administration failed abysmally, lacked direction, was full of insecurity and recorded economic collapse.
The South-South leader made the statement in reaction to the launching of a book “Working with Buhari: Reflections of A Special Adviser, Media and Publicity (2015-2023)” written by Buhari’s former Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
The book was presented alongside five volumes of another book titled, “Muhammadu Buhari, the Nigerian Legacy, 2015-2023”.
In a statement dated Thursday, January 18, 2024, Clark faulted the former President for eulogising his achievements during the book launch, adding that his eulogising was contrary to citizens’ assessment of his tenure in office.
