Adams Oshiomole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says without an iota of doubt, President Buhari has done immensely well in his 100 days into his second term as President.
Speaking at an APC meeting in Abuja yesterday, Oshiomole said President Buhari can beat his chest to say he has started off very well and fast. ”President Buhari can beat his chest to say I have started well; I have started fast. You cannot call him Baba Go Slow now. This time, he is Baba Fast. Everything is about the comparison. In 2015, after 100 days, we did not have a federal cabinet. The President had not appointed ministers. From my interaction with a number of ministers, 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.
“Government is already effectively on ground. That alone shows a remarkable departure if you compare what the President has done in 2019 to what he did in 2015. The President has been engaging in various groups. Recently, he talked to the Nigeria Society of Engineers and other professional groups, reminding all of us that we have our roles to play in the Nigeria project.
“As a party, we have access to the President. We see him any time we want to see him and share with him whatever we want to do. You notice that this time, the President organized a retreat for ministers immediately they were appointed. That retreat was not about entertainment; it was to discuss Nigeria and the administration’s policy choices.
“Now, the government challenge is: where do we cut costs, so that we can find resources we need to sustain investment in infrastructure?”
