Former Sokoto state governor, Alhaji Attahiru Dalhatu Bafarawa has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has failed as a leader.

According to Bafarawa, Buhari’s “failure” is due to the fact that he doesn’t have a listening ear.

“Buhari has failed because he does not have a listening ear, he does not heed to advice at a time Nigerians are wallowing in poverty and deprivation,” Bafarawa told the Hausa service of Voice of America (VOA).
