Buhari’s can seek re-election, says senator
He also said the only way for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to make a headway is for its leadership to ensure aggrieved members get justice.
Kashamu said: “Every Nigerian is entitled to his opinion. Freedom of speech is one of the essentials of democracy. The President is constitutionally entitled to seek re-election and that is undeniable.
The electorate should be the ones to decide whether they want him to continue in office or not since the issue of satisfactory performance is relative and might be subjective. For instance, it is common knowledge that the President promised to deliver on three things – to fight corruption, insecurity and fix our economy.
Now, the jury is out as to whether he has delivered on the three programmes. But, no one can deny the fact that he has blocked many leakages in our treasury through the implementation of the Treasury Single Account (TSA), the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), Government Financial Management and Information System and the Efficiency Unit of the Federal Ministry of Finance, among others.
“The Federal Government has also decimated Boko Haram. Unlike before, the insurgents are no longer in control of any Nigerian territory. Again, although not all the Chibok girls are back, a good number of the girls have returned and back in the warm embrace of their families. While those in support of the President’s re-election could say that his anti-corruption war has helped to stabilise our economy and saved it from recession, those against it could argue that he is fighting corruption and insecurity at the expense of the economy.
Others could say that though the administration is fixing critical infrastructure, there is no stomach infrastructure and that it is those who are alive that can use the infrastructure.
But, there are those who also believe that fixing the critical infrastructure will guarantee stomach infrastructure on a more sustainable basis, rather than being a flash in the pan that we and unborn generations would end up paying for in the future.
