The Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari has again failed to name those who have looted and returned such loots to the country. 

The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate who made history by beating the incumbent, Goodluck Jonathan of the People’s Democratic party (PDP) has ridden on the claim of increasing employment, providing constant electricity, increasing the value of the Naira, and fighting corruption; a vice that has been the bane of the world’s most populous black nation. However, Buhari’s one year in office has been far from what was expected.

Power has dropped to an all time low. Naira is depreciating, people are losing jobs, and the much publicised corruption fight is seen by many to be biased as only members of the opposition PDP have been caught by the anti-corruption net so far. The economy is literally crumbling, cost of living has risen, and Nigeria has lost her place as Africa’s biggest economy.

Amidst these, the presidency has asked for patience, even when there are no defined economic policies to curtail the downward slide, or at least restore some confidence for the future.

In what was seen to be a bold step, Buhari announced that the names of looters would be announced in a national broadcast on the 29th of May, the day to mark his one year in office.  The president however failed to make the announcement. On the night of May 29, one of the aids announced that the list would be made public on Tuesday, May 31st and not later than Thursday, June 2. However, as the sun sets on Friday the 3rd of June, the list is yet to be announced, adding to the long list of promises not kept by the Buhari administration, and raising more questions.
