Don’t Assess Buhari Yet, Says PDP BoT scribe
THE Secretary of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Walid Jibrin, has said 100 days of the present administration in office is not enough yardsticks to assess its performance.
In an interview with journalists yesterday in Nasarawa, he urged Nigerians to give the administration more time before any assessment.
“I don’t agree that Buhari is slow and I don’t believe that 100 days are enough to judge anybody or any one in office. It is just for one to start planning very well.
“Let us give him and other leaders up to six months and after that, we could start assessing the administration,” he said.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Jibrin also called on Buhari to be fair to all political parties and individuals in his war against corruption.
“If Buhari decides to probe some individuals, both in APC and PDP, so be it. I will support him if he is doing the right thing for the betterment of society,” he added.
He urged Muslims and other Nigerians to use the period Eid el-Kabir to pray for peaceful co-existence among the diverse ethnic, religious and political groups in the country.
Jibrin said PDP was working to win the presidential election in 2019, insisting that PDP would change Nigeria positively when it assumes office.
