Akinwumi Ambode, Lagos state governor, has named the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari in his first 100 days in office.
Ambode stated that President Buhari has brought credibility and integrity into public office since his inauguration.
He added that within the first 100 days the president had brought about strong leadership which had shown direction to all Nigerians.
The governor, who was part of the delegation of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) that visited President Buhari on September 1, noted this in an interview with State House reporters after the meeting.
Within the last 100 days, Ambode noted, Buhari has also come up with moral leadership that is necessary to fight corruption in Nigeria.
He said the president’s leadership style was being witnessed in states of the federation as everyone was beginning to feel duty-bound to obey the rule of law.
Lagos state governor said: “What President Muhammadu Buhari has come up with in the last 100 days is about credibility and integrity for those of us who are in public office. Buhari has come up with moral leadership in the last 100 days, and that is what is needed to fight corruption in the country.
“Nobody is judging anyone. What we have seen since May 29 is about strong leadership that has shown direction to all Nigerians. The mantra of such leadership that is being reflected by the president is what we’re seeing in other states. Everybody is beginning to feel that they must obey the rule of law. All revenue agencies are now paying to a single account and that makes everyone to be accountable”.
However, the presidency reinstated that President Buhari did not promise Nigerians that he would achieve specific things within his first 100 days in office.
Still, many Nigerians believe that those promises of their new president, Muhammadu Buhari, will prove stronger.
