When it comes to assessing Buhari’s achievements so far in office, that generates a lot of controversies. For his fans, he has done a lot to sanitise the system. He has done a lot in his fight against corruption. Under Buhari, anti-graft agencies like the EFCC and ICPC have made more arrests than under previous administrations, they say.
To his critics, Buhari has woefully failed. Since he came to power, all he has ever done is to complain about the 16-year rule of the PDP. Every day, there are excuses made by one member of his administration or the other about how PDP mortgaged the future of Nigeria.
At a point, Nigerians got fed up with the excuses. Nigerians began to ask what Buhari was expecting when he decided to run for office in the first place. Was he expecting it to be a walk in the park? He knew Nigeria was corrupt and that was why he ran for office. He knew there was insecurity in Nigeria before deciding to run. So why does he keep blaming the PDP for Nigeria’s problems?
It seems all of that has changed for a while now. Since Buhari began his second term, we have heard very little complaints from the presidency and the APC about the chequered 16-year-rule of the PDP. Incidentally, someone thinks that’s Buhari’s greatest achievement!

Daily Post reports that an estranged political associate of President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Chairman of defunct Reformed All Progressives Congress, rAPC, Alhaji Buba Galadima, has said that the only achievement of the current administration is that they have finally stopped blaming the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the woes of the country.
He made this point during a Channels Television programme in which he debated President Buhari’s Special Assistant on Media, Aliyu Abdullahi. Abdullahi had earlier claimed that this administration has done credibly well, and no part of Nigeria is under the control of Boko Haram today.
In his response, Galadima said, “He [Abdullahi] is free to say that because we’re in democracy everybody has got their view and opinion about an issue.
“But I don’t think our listeners in this country, [ I mean] anybody that is listening to this programme will agree with him or anyone else [on that.] Because the only achievement for me, the APC has done is that they have stopped the blame game.
“[They have] stopped blaming the PDP for the woes of this country. That is the only achievement they have. But if you are talking about security, I don’t want to take you very far, go to the President’s home State of Katsina. Today, in the newspapers, several people were killed, several others were displaced. That is his home state.”
Do you agree that Buhari’s only achievement is stopping the blame game? Do you agree with Galadima that Buhari’s greatest achievement is that he has stopped blaming PDP for Nigeria’s woes? We will like to hear from you. Share your thoughts in the comment section.
