Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has said President Muhammadu Buhari has put the country on the path of progress and bright future within his first 100 days in office.
Atiku, in a statement signed by his media office said Buhari has reinforced his confidence, that despite the perceived slow pace noting that Nigeria is witnessing a marked departure from the culture of impunity, inertia and apathy in governance.
According to Atiku, even within the first 100 days, Nigerians could clearly see real proofs that the country is already moving in the right direction, which he attributed to President Buhari’s leadership by example style.
He added that the President’s body language has sent strong and unmistakable message that the era of impunity was over, and that “corruption is no longer fashionable” and explained that when leaders lead by example, they could automatically inspire public confidence, which he said is a condition for the success of any government policy.
According to Atiku, the Buhari administration has so far succeeded in blocking revenue leakages and diversions, which feed corruption.
The Turaki of Adamawa, who said he was proud to be part of the change movement, said there are enough examples that President Buhari is making a difference.
He said the Boko Haram terrorists are for the first time facing a fiercer response from newly motivated armed forces, adding that the terrorists are in disarray because of the new offensive strategy adopted by the government.
Atiku appealed to Nigerians to show more patience with President Buhari because some major reforms might take time, but the country would ultimately be a better place.
Recenlty, Atiku’s daughter, Dr Fatima Atiku was appointed as the Adamawa Commissioner of Health.
