“History will be caring to President Buhari on the grounds that notwithstanding his astounding capacity to order casts a ballot, he will be recognized as the President who made genuine commitments to financial and in general public advancement by killing the disasters of debasement installed in endowments”, read the announcement by Garba Shehu, the senior exceptional to Buhari on media.
The full explanation:
The All Progressives Congress, APC came to control in 2015 vanquishing an officeholder organization in the midst of extremely elevated standards from President Muhammadu Buhari.
Five years on, the organization has endeavored to meet numerous desires, yet, there are sure intense choices which must be taken to return the nation on the way of reasonable turn of events.
To stop the botch of citizen cash, kill debasement related with appropriations on oil based goods, power, manure among others, the organization took the choice to actualize since quite a while ago deferred changes, pull back and permit the market to decide their costs.
Sponsorship evacuation in these segments had for quite some time been anticipated by progressive organizations as distinct advantages looking for answers for push ahead with the country’s turn of events. These are changes that are fundamental and past due. Plan upon outline, course of events upon timetable had gone back and forth however fortitude to take striking choices was not there.
Over the last few days, one claim acquiring a potent resonance with the online community, sections of the labour movement and the opposition is that the actions are ill-timed and ill-advised.
There is nothing new in the fact that the country is today fighting multiple challenges along with COVID-19, including low earnings, near-collapse of the oil market, floods, threats of terrorism and banditry but the challenges notwithstanding, a good government must take decisions for the people’s good.
As President, Muhammadu Buhari takes these difficult decisions, both popular and unpopular and as a leader because he is demonstrating the right courage to take such decisions as they become necessary in view of present circumstances.
History will be kind to President Buhari because in addition to his amazing ability to command votes, he will be remembered as the President who made real contributions to economic and overall national development by eliminating the evils of corruption embedded in subsidies.
In any democracy, the most important certificate in governance is acceptance by the people and, with the support of ordinary Nigerians, President Buhari has shown a rare determination to carry out the bold initiatives as these ones driven by nothing other than the greatest good for the greatest number of people. In carrying out the reforms, the President needs the support and understanding of all citizens-inclusive of the opposition parties, the labour movement and civil society groups.
In these challenging times, the President is pushing development goals not politics and history will judge him in favourable terms rather than his critics in the new media and the opposition.
