Buhari’s government is for criminals – Dino Melaye

The senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye on Wednesday condemned irregularities in the current administration, particularly some of President Muhammadu Buhari’s appointments.

Melaye said this during the 2017 Nigeria Democracy Day Lecture organised by the Save Democracy Group Africa (SDG-Africa) in Abuja.

“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 grasscutter.

“When you appoint a man who has no experience in civil administration as SGF, he is bound to misbehave,” the senator said.
