Kwande rates Buhari high, mangni disagrees
Elder statesman in Plateau State and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Yahaya Kwande, has told The Guardian that President Muhammadu Buhari has achieved a lot in the past one year.
Kwande argued that Buhari’s highest achievement is in the deregulation of oil price, which he said is the beginning of hope for Nigerians, adding: “Every other thing is tied to it. Intra and inter buses for ordinary Nigerians will be made available for their comfort. It is now that we will begin to see medical facilities in hospitals being subsidised and all these are as a result of deregulation. “We will now begin to see positive recreation, open places for our children to play to their pleasure.
I think this is the best thing he has done and I urge all Nigerians to cooperate with Mr. President to continue to bring the best of the administration.”
But a chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state and one time factional chairman of the party, Chief Emmanuel Mangni, disagrees.
Mangni told The Guardian: “People are saying that things will be better, but we have not seen anything. The economy is in a shambles. Boko Haram insurgency is still very potent. Fulani herdsmen are still on the prowl, killing innocent people with reckless abandon.
Do we call this an achievement? Look at the fuel hike that necessitated the recently suspended nationwide strike called by the Nigeria Labour Congress. What will you tell the common man in the street that he will believe you?” Mangni called on the President to do something if the change mantra of this administration was sincere.
