An Igbo monarch Eze Obidiegwu Onyesoh, has urged Nigerians to stop blaming President Muhammadu Buhari for the challenges facing the country, but should rather blame themselves.
Onyesoh, who is the ruler of Nri in Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra, made the call on Friday while addressing newsmen ahead of Saturday’s celebration of 2016 new yam festival in the kingdom.
He said Nigeria’s problems started long before Buhari became president.
He said, “Buhari is not our headache; corruption and looting of national assets were there before he came in.
“Corruption was institutionalised in the country and everybody acted with impunity.
“There was no discipline anywhere. So, we should stop blaming Buhari; rather, we should blame ourselves and do some self-examination.”
Onyesoh urged the people to allow Buhari to reconstruct the country which was already in shambles before his election.
