Buhari’s New Year’s speech!


The Federal Executive Council (FEC), presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari

Sir: My grouse as a Buharist with Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is the inadequate information on the daily business of his government to the uninformed and disgruntled people of Nigeria.

The gradual stability of electricity is good news to all of us. The partnership of his government with the government of China to restore energy and power to Nigeria is a welcome development. Power, transportation and security are the engine of socioeconomic growth of any nation.

With good infrastructure in place, every other thing shall be added unto them. I am an incurable optimist of a better Nigeria!

Meanwhile, Buhari’s handlers are his number one detractors because of their shoddiness and ineffectiveness! President Buhari’s deafening silence at times, is also one of his encumbrances.


How does a typical Buharist explain to Buhari’s adversaries the ossifying lies constantly being spewed out by Lai Mohammed? Or the inconsistencies and uncoordinated amateurish briefings of Femi Adesina? Nigerians have every right to know what their leaders do for them.

If Buhari had good handlers, his administration wouldn’t appoint dead people into boards. The buck stops on the president’s table at Aso Rock!

Yes! Nigerians are impatient people and they have every right to be impatient. It is imperative for Buhari to hire competent hands to let the people know what the government is doing for them. He should stop the government of recycling of men of yesterday. A good product with bad advertisement is doomed to be unfit for human consumption.

Buhari is a humble and ingenious man. I am particularly impressed by his keen observation of the people of southwest for their religious tolerance and sense of inclusiveness in the nation’s affairs. His understanding of the plight of aggrieved people of the Southeast and South south of Nigeria instead as opposed to their bashing of him is leadership.

His loyal and unfettered appreciation of men and women of the Nigerian Armed Forces is motivating and encouraging! His gracious appreciation of Nigerians for their prayers and concerns during his medical predicament is good. I still maintain that Buhari has good intentions for Nigeria. The style of his administration needs to be improved upon to deliver the dividends of democracy to Nigerians.

President Buhari’s reassuring speech and the promise of his government to be receptive to new ideas and criticisms is a welcome development.
