Buhari needs two years to con­cep­tu­al­ize his pro­grammes - Gal­adima

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, Lagos

Na­tional Chair­man of the Al­lied Congress Party of Nige­ria (ACPN), Al­haji Ganiyu Gal­adima has ap­pealed to Nige­ri­ans to give Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari ad­e­quate time to con­cep­tu­al­ize his pro­grammes.

Gal­adima said it was ir­ra­tional for any­body to start crit­i­cis­ing the pres­i­dent who barely spent five months in the sad­dle.

Speak­ing with Daily Trust yes­ter­day, Gal­adima, who was also the pres­i­den­tial can­di­date of the ACPN in the last elec­tion noted that the pres­i­dent re­quired at least two years to con­cep­tu­al­ize his pro­grammes.

Ac­cord­ing to him, those cas­ti­gat­ing the present ad­min­is­tra­tion are not be­ing fair to the pres­i­dent.

He said Nige­ri­ans must ap­pre­ci­ate the fact that Buhari was yet to pre­pare his own bud­get, stress­ing that once the min­is­ters come on board, pos­i­tive pro­grammes would be un­veiled.

“Peo­ple started crit­i­cis­ing him with­out giv­ing him any time to do some­thing. To me, it is base­less. If any­body wants to crit­i­cise a gov­ern­ment, let him start af­ter two or three years,” he said.
