The Governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole, has appealed to Nigerians to exercise patience with President Muhammadu Buhari, saying “there will be no quick fix measures because Buhari inherited a treasury that is almost empty”.
Oshiomhole expressed optimism that the president’s policies and programmes would impact on Nigerians positively.
He was speaking in Auchi, Etsako west local government area of Edo state on Sunday.
“Buhari has the political will to make things better for Nigerians,” he said. “I know that President Buhari will do better, because we had a meeting with him last week, and he is very conscious that he became a president courtesy of the ordinary people, particularly the poor.
“He is very committed at fashioning out policies and programmes, social infrastructure and physical infrastructure that will impact directly on the lives of average persons.
“So, I can assure you that the president is determined to ensure that he justifies the confidence reposed in him.
“All the same, he has not come to lament that, but, he has come to give a new hope and we are more inspired now.”
