President Muhammadu Buhari is merely three years away from leaving office in 2023, but his performance is said to be too poor that he won't be remembered for the right reasons.

There were huge expectations that the coming of Buhari as President in 2015, would help right the wrongs of his predecessor's whom he accused of handing over to him, a nation on a life-support.

However, after years into his Presidency, Nigerians were left red faced with feelings of once again, being betrayed by someone they were warned about, but whom they felt deserved a chance.

As if the failings of the Buhari administration in the past years weren't enough, it's handling of the current covid-19 health crisis is far from convincing.

In fact, critics say the current health crisis facing the country has exposed the ineptitude of the APC government since both hailiers and wailers disapprove the approach used by the Buhari administration in addressing covid-19 pandemic in the country.

Femi Aribisala, a faith columnist and critic of the Buhari administration, had said the president will sadly be leaving behind a legacy that would be remembered for "making a bad situation so much worse."

He said, "In all my years of living in Nigeria, I can say along with the overwhelming majority of Nigerians that we have never had it so bad. Only one thing explains the extremities of Nigeria’s miserable predicament today: we have in office a government so singularly inept and incompetent, it has triumphed in making a bad situation so much worse.

"From Buhari's performance since he became President, it is abundantly clear that Buhari is not qualified to be president of 21st century Nigeria. The president has neither agenda nor direction. His cardinal objective is apparently the prosecution of Northern hegemony. It is time to admit that electing Buhari as president was a big national blunder.”

"In his wasted days in office so far, there is no difference, except that things have gone terribly wrong. I repeat: Nigerians have never had it so bad."

Meanwhile, Covid-19 cases in the country is still on the rise, and Nigerians are left wondering when all these nightmares will eventually become a thing of the past.
