Buhari, the elixir to an ailing nation
SIR: First of all, I will like to congratulate General Muhammadu Buhari on his victory as Nigeria’s President-Elect.
However, the celebration should not also go like that without extracting some important lessons for record purposes.
When Buhari contested in 2003, 2007 and 2011, we all rejected him as our candidate but prevailing realities, including parlous electricity, parlous economy, and a host of others may have forced Nigerians again to look his way, defying his strengths and failings when he held sway as a military head of state.
It is however, noteworthy, that the majority has come to conclusion that Buhari is the one that can rework the nation’s economy, thus his victory could be described as general endorsement after three attempts.
Moreover, Kudos should also be given to President Goodluck Jonathan for creating the enabling platform for smooth conduct of the election and for also conceding defeat.
Our Expectations are high and it is our hope that you (Buhari) will fulfill all the promises made.
Comrade Olawoyin Edris
