Senator Dino Melaye has described the agenda which brough President Muhammadu Buhari to power as the “greatest scam that came out of Africa”.
Melaye, who once represented Kogi West Senatorial District, said this on Friday while featuring on Channels TV programme, Politics Today.
Melaye, a People’s Democratic Party chieftain, was one of Buhari’s backers ahead of the 2015 elections but later dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress following disagreements.
The former lawmaker, while speaking on Friday, said he apologised to God and Nigerians for supporting Buhari’s candidacy in 2015.
He noted that the Buhari administration had failed Nigerians in all aspects, from security to economy and infrastructure.
He added, “To start with, I apologise to God Almighty who is the supreme controller of the universe and to Nigerians for supporting Buhari. The Buhari agenda is the greatest scam that came out of Africa. The Buhari presidency in 2015 is the greatest scam that came out of Africa.
“Once I was blind, now I can see. How can one remain in a political party or support a president with what is happening today in Nigeria? How? So, I regret very seriously because we were scammed.”
