Nigerians will clap for the President Muhammadu Buhari administration when he leaves office in 2023, his spokesman Femi Adesina has said.
Just like the administration of former president Goodluck Jonathan faced backlash from Nigerians when he was in charge, same has been the situation with the incumbent.
Most of Jonathan critics while he was in power are now praising his administration as being better than the present one.
Mr Buhari nicknamed ‘Baba Go Slow’ during his first term recently irked Nigerians when he appointed another Northerner to head the Nigerian Army, ignoring the second in command who is a Southerner from the South-East region.
He has been accused of nepotism, corruption, incompetence, tribal bigotry among others but these Mr Adesina said will be appreciated when his principal leaves office the next two years.
“When the Administration breasts the tape in another two years, by the grace of God, the applause will be resounding, even from the worst of sceptics,” the president’s spokesman said while articulating the achievements of his principal in the last six years.
“As it is said, the past is but a story told. The future may yet be written in gold. Facts are undeniable and always remain so. They are stubborn things.
“From infrastructure, to finance, education, healthcare, sports, anti-corruption, human development, housing, oil and gas, foreign relations, and many others, the Administration is recording giant strides, enough to make Nigerians proud,” he added.
