I Need More Than One Term To Fix Nigeria – Buhari
As far as the task of fixing Nigeria is concerned, President Muhammadu Buhari believes it could not be done in just four years.
The President said it will, as a matter of fact, require more than one election cycle to fix the country and for him to deliver on the promised change.
He argued that the change promised by his government was not an event, but a process and it would, therefore, require time to deliver.
While urging Nigerians to re-elect him for another term of four years, the President gave the assurance that the fruits of the efforts he had made in fixing the country in the last three and a half years would soon begin to manifest.
Buhari also countered the argument that Nigeria lacked institutions, describing the claim as one of the “hyperbolic expressions that fly around these days.”
The President said this on Monday in Lagos while delivering the 75th anniversary business lecture of the Island Club.
The lecture titled, “Nation building and institutional development, lessons for Nigeria from the Island Club at 75,” was delivered on behalf of Buhari by the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola.
Buhari, who is the grand patron of the club, recalled that unlike now, there was a time when the club held its major events in the open air because it had no hall and could not afford one then.
“It took more than one term and one election cycle of the Chairman of Island Club to build this hall just as it will require more than one election cycle to build the nation and deliver change,” the President said.
