10 months not enough for Buhari to deliver, says Gbajabiamila
Nigerians urged to be more patient
Leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajiabiamila, has cautioned Nigerians over hasty expectations from the 10-month old government of President Muhammadu Buhari, saying the period was not enough for him to deliver.
Gbajabiamila, made the disclosure at the 4th Convocation ceremony of Achievers University, Owo, Ondo State at the weekend, while delivering his acceptance speech, after he was bestowed with a honourary doctorate degree in Political Science.
The House leader said there was no way the APC- led administration would have tackled what he termed “the deep hole the nation was pulled into in the last 16 years.”
According to him, he was “Aware Nigerians are facing challenges and everybody is complaining, but…it took almost eight years for Obama to take America out of the rots he inherited. It is the same thing that is going on in Nigeria. We inherited a rot that there is no way we could come out of it in 10 months.”
Asking Nigerians to be patient, Gbajiabiamila reiterated that, “Change is an organic thing and cannot be achieved overnight.”
In a related development, a popular Ifa priest, Olawale Popoola, has urged Nigerians to be more patient with the president, in his efforts to move the nation forward.
Popoola, who made the call at a forum in Ijoko, Ogun State said this became necessary in view of the fact that the past administrations since 1999 had “put the nation into a mess we are now.”
“Let us be frank to ourselves, President Buhari should be given more time to recover all the looted money stolen by both politicians and corrupt officers. By so doing, he will be able to put infrastructure in place and reshape the lost glory of the nation,” he said.
