Leader urges more patience for Buhari

The Muslim Association of Nigeria (MAN) has charged President Muhammadu Buhari to liaise as quickly as possible with the leadership of the National Assembly with a view to reconciling the grey areas in the 2016 federal budget so it could be sealed and implemented in earnest, stressing that the impasse was compounding the hardship of the citizenry.

The organisation also hailed the President for being decisive with issues bordering on insecurity, corruption and the ailing economy.

In a communiqué issued at the association’s national officers’ meeting in Lagos by its president, Alhaji Sulaiman Alabi Yusuf and spokesperson, Alhaja Nurat Adebayo, MAN urged the Federal Government not to relent in ongoing efforts at enhancing security across the federation, especially the North East geopolitical zone.

It prayed for “total victory over the insurgents and restoration of sustainable peace in the affected zone as well as other parts of the country”.

“The association identifies with every lawful action of the government that can reduce corruption and every other form of abuse, so as to ensure a brighter and more rewarding living for the citizenry,” it added.

However, a community leader in Ogun State, Prof. Olawale Popoola, has urged Nigerians to exercise more patience with Buhari in his bid to move the nation forward.
