By Louis Osagu:
President Muhammadu Buhari’s first 100 days in office has been rated high without any fear of prejudice.
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole stated this in an interaction with journalists in Abuja during the weekend.
Oshiomhole who outlined some areas which President Buhari’s achievements in 100 days is evident, said the president has been fast enough to cover many areas.
He said: “Everything is about comparism. Because in 2015, after a hundred days we did not have a federal cabinet, the President had not appointed ministers.
“This time in hundred days, from my interaction with a number of Ministers, even the budget for 2020 is already being prepared. Ministers have been assigned to their various Ministries.
“They have already started the process of taking over and trying to understand the challenges.
“So even that alone shows a remarkable departure if you compare what the President has done in 2019 to what he has done in 2015.
“Even the current issues in South Africa, the prompt manner in which the President reacted and took bold steps sent a clear message to South Africa that we are not about to accept Nigeria being humiliated in their businesses. I think the bold step he has taken is refreshing.
“The President has been engaging various groups. Recently, he was talking to the Nigeria Society of Engineers, several professional groups, reminding all of us that we have our role to play in the Nigeria project.
Speaking further, Oshiomhole said as a Party (APC), they have every access to the President in order to share with him whatever they want to do.
Oshiomhole also pointed out that President Buhari also organized a retreat for Ministers immediately they were appointed, stressing that the retreat was not about entertainment but an avenue to discuss about Nigeria and the administration’s choices of policy in general
