Senator Dino Melaye
Speaking while giving his remarks at the 2017 Nigeria Democracy Day Lecture organized by the Save Democracy Group Africa (SDG-Africa) in Abuja, Senator Dino Melaye, on Wednesday openly criticized President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, especially some of his appointments.
The outspoken Kogi West senator said that such appointments by the president have done more harm than good to Nigerians, adding that the President’s appointees are mostly people without the requisite experience.
He said such appointments is largely to blame for some of the ills recorded in the first two years of Buhari’s administration.
He said, “Democracy is defined as a government of the people, by the people and for the people but what we had in the time of Jonathan was greedocracy, which is the government of the greedy, by the greedy and for the greedy.
“Today, we have criminocracy-a government of the criminals, by the criminals and for the criminals.
“Wrong appointment led to the emergence of the former (suspended) Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF who became a grass-cutter.
“When you appoint a man who has no experience in civil administration as SGF, he is bound to misbehave.”
