BUHARI’S 100 DAYS: Understaning The Concept Of Foundation

President Muhammadu Buhari
By Sunday Osanyintuyi | @SundayOs
I had proposed different topic for this engagement.
But reading through various opinions online and offline gave me a change of
mind. More importantly, I didn’t want to appear as another talk on the matter. In
a political driven nation like Nigeria, where so many issues emanate daily, one
cannot but take a deep thought and reflect on our progress as a people.
There have been so many vilifications, praised and
jabs about what the current.

administration’s 100 days in office stand for. Some
opined it has been motion without movement while others view it as “no change
in any form”. No doubt All Progressive Congress, APC and presidency have come
out reeling the achievements of its government. Fine, the SSA Media and
Publicity to the president, Garba Shehu has stated clearly that some documents
including the 100 days timeline delivery didn’t emanate from them. Who did it?
I think the party needs to streamline its policies better and communicate such
with clarity going forward.  When such
document was rife online, it would have been a matter of policy for the party
to state its side knowing such didn’t emanate from their campaign office. This defiance
amounts to simple deception for Nigeria and Nigerians.

Definitely, this current set of leaders sacked the
previous people because of the “change” promised Nigerians. Most Nigerians,
before the last elections, were sick and tired of everything Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP) represented. The party has 16 good years to transform the fortunes
of the Nation, but chose the opposite.  So when those vilified comments were coming in
for APC, one could clearly understand Nigerians anger. Truth be told, not all
comments against APC should be viewed with goggled of politics as some were
based on the timeline promised by the party. The party’s leadership needs to
have a muse over all its promises to Nigerians lest the evils that befell the
out gone party, PDP, confront them come 2019.
In my view, 100 days under president Mohammadu
Buhari could be liken to laying a foundation for a three or four story
building. For experts in that industry, it is taken for granted that same
rigour and intelligence will not be for a bungalow. With a decayed nation left
behind by past governments, not necessarily by the immediate administration, it
will take reasonable time to lay solid foundation for a better Nigeria.  Everyone must appreciate this fact. The
president promised us change and we voted for it.  Doing or running government affairs the old way
but expect different results will confirm us as insane.
For any nation that hopes to develop, merit is
valued above share traditions. We have played around with the term “federal
character” in running affairs of this nation for too long. It is time to break
down this wall. The idea of federal character in itself is not bad but the
execution has been the problem. I am convinced the brains behind that idea
never imagined our level of depravity as a people. Most federally appointed
individuals have used the positions to transform their personal pockets to the
detriment of general interest. Such must stop, if this government wants
Nigerians to see it as serious.
The cries or permit me to use Wailing Wailers
Academy of Nigeria’s (WWAN) blindness to reality revolves round the non
appointment of ministers to ethic colorations. No one seems to see the
improvements in our power supply, dwindling corruption cases in most government
ministries, integrity of government appointees, increase effectiveness against
Boko Haram, increased international relations and more.
By and large, the 100 days of the current
administration have not been complete waste for Nigeria but may not be the same
for All Governments In Power (AGIP) individuals whose survival depend on
corruption and stealing from government. In the coming days, PMB administration
should make life more uncomfortable for these cabals while making Nigerians
lives better.
Developed Nigeria is possible!
