‘Buhari’s visit to C/River healthy for democ­racy’

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Hir Joseph (Jos) and Eyo Charles (Cal­abar)

The flag-off a su­per­high­way con­struc­tion by Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari which was ini­ti­ated by Gover­nor Ben Ayade of Cross River State has shown that the pres­i­dent is a true demo­crat, Na­tional vice chair­man of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC), Hil­liard Eta, has said.

In a state­ment by his me­dia aide,

of Bassey Ita, Eta said that Tues­day’s visit by Pres­i­dent Buhari was a pointer to the fact the APC does not play pol­i­tics with the peo­ple’s wel­fare.

Sim­i­larly, Mur­tala Adogi, a so­cial critic in Jos, said he was im­presssed that an op­po­si­tion gover­nor was the first to at­tract Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari for a de­vel­op­ment project, an ac­tion which he said “is a plus for the op­po­si­tion in the coun­try.”
