Assessing Buhari's first year in office

27 May 2016, 08:47

Abuja - The Nigerian government on Thursday asked Nigerians to be hopeful of a better future, saying “Change is no instant coffee, it is a process". 

According to Premium Times, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, gave the message of hope at a meeting with members of the Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria (BON) ahead of the one year anniversary of the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

Lai said long suffering people always enjoy enduring prosperity afterwards, praising Nigerians for their “support, endurance and perseverance.’’

The House of Representatives urged Nigerians to exercise patience while assessing the performance of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in the last one year in office.

According to Punch, Leader of the House, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, argued that one year out of four-year tenure was not enough for the government to have transformed the country.

There are many changes Nigerians expect from the government, but those will take time. However, the Buhari administration must be commended for regaining swathes of territory that the Islamist militants had occupied, considerably weakening Boko Haram.
