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.
