Buhari: If You Like, Call Me Baba Go Slow by valentineuwakwe(m): 12:53am On Dec 26, 2019
The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari ( retd. ), says he will uphold the 1999 Constitution ( as amended) in pursuing the policies of his regime “ whether you call me Baba Go Slow or not”.

Buhari stated this when he received residents of the Federal Capital Territory led by the Minister, Muhammad Bello , during the traditional Christmas Day homage at The presidential Villa, Abuja.

Before receiving the FCT residents , he had earlier on Wednesday with Vice- President Yemi Osinbajo.

The VP had presented Christmas gifts, including a card to his boss.
Buhari said his administration would focus on the provision of infrastructure , especially roads, power and railway transport, not withstanding any criticisms it had faced.

According to him , Nigerians will not care about who is the President or in government so long as they have good infrastructure.

The President said , ‘‘This administration sincerely believes that if you get infrastructure right , most Nigerians will mind their own business. They may not even care who is in government.

‘‘But when you deny them infrastructure , then there is nothing they can do .”
He thanked Nigerians for voting him into office twice, saying it was proof they sympathised with him.

He added, ‘‘But I can assure you that I thank Nigerians very much from the bottom of my heart.

‘‘When I travelled to all the 36 states before the elections, what I personally observed and the number of Nigerians that turned up in every state to see and listen to me, were more than what anybody can pay or force .

‘‘What I saw made me believe that the majority of Nigerians understand and sympathise with me.

“ I swore to hold this office by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, whether you call me Baba Go Slow or not.


“ I will be diligent in serving this country dutifully .”

On the delegation were religious leaders across Christianity and Islam, traditional rulers as well as groups like the Christian Association of Nigeria.

Some of the notable faces were the Catholic Archbishop of Abuja , Ignatius Kaigama, and the Imam of the Abuja National Mosque , Dr Mohammed Kabir.

Speaking earlier, the minister thanked Buhari for the support the FCT had received from his regime since 2015, especially in providing security and infrastructure.

Bello also reviewed 2019, recalling that as of 2018, many people predicted doom for Nigeria.

However , he said the year came and passed with the 2019 general elections conducted and Buhari ’s regime inaugurated for a second term .
He spoke further , “ We thank God for bringing us this far , we started 2019 with a lot hope and a lot of challenges.

“ A year ago when we came, we had elections before us. We were faced with a lot of challenges from within and without from parties that never wished the nation well.

“ By the grace of God , campaigns were completed successfully; by the grace of God , inauguration was done successfully ; by the grace of God , we celebrated June 12 as our new Democracy Day.

The Minister of Nigeria Delta, Godswill Akpabio, who was also at the Presidential Villa , commended the regime for the cordial relationship it had established with the National Assembly , resulting in the speedy passage of the 2020 budget.

Nigeria's best ever president.
.
History would be kind to you.

I'm certain that by the end of your tenure we would see how much development took place under your leadership.

Many do not understand the concept of sacrifice before gratification. The reason Nigeria has always been a sleeping giant.

Watch how 2020 swings the pendulum in the positive direction.

Some of the occurrences are clarifying the fact that the President is not actually the one fully in charge of governance in this country.

"...The Nigerian public has been made to believe that the slow pace of action of the Federal Government headed by Major-General Muhammadu Buhari was due to the enormity of the problems left by the last civilian administration."

"-...The real reason, however, for the very slow pace of action is due to lack of unanimity of purpose among the ruling body; subsequently, the business of governance has gradually been subjected to ill-motivated power play considerations.


The ruling body, the Supreme Military Council, has, therefore, progressively been made redundant by the actions of a select few members charged with the day-to-day implementation of the SMC’s policies and decision."

-"..The concept of collective leadership has been substituted by stubborn and illadvised unilateral actions, thereby destroying the principles upon which the government came to power. Any effort made to advise the leadership, met with stubborn resistance and was viewed as a challenge to authority or disloyalty.


Thus, the scene was being set for systematic elimination of what, was termed oppositions. All the energies of the rulership were directed at this imaginary opposition rather than to effective leadership.
The Coup Speech That Overthrow Buhari on 27th.Aug. 1985. Same scenario in 1983-85, same today and so shall it remain.

Some people will give themselves high blood pressure ontop PMB matter ooo.

And they're swarming NL daily. Who knows? They could be MNK's foot soldiers. It isn't difficult to hire 15 lazy youths and pay them 15k monthly just to be sentinels of NL's fp.

But where was MNK 8years ago when GEJ was president? Truth is Ipobians can say whatever crap they wish about Nigeria but we all know that they cherish an Igbo president of Nigeria than even a Biafra continent.

By the way. I love PMB's sense of humor. If many of these haters' fathers had a quarter of his sense of humor perhaps they wouldn't have grown with bitterness, hate and negativity in their hearts.

The only time he traveled round the state was during the campaign undecided the rest is in the North or outside the country!

This shows that your regime is not an all inclusive government.

I don't believe all these sympathy Major General Buhari is trying to generate all of a sudden

You swear to hold and respect our constitution

Then reverse all these nepotistic positions currently in your regime!!!

God bless His Excellence, President Mohammadu Buhari (GCFR)

Even at a slow pace, he has achieved more than 16 years of PDP rule.

Kudos to Minsters like Fashola and Ameachi who have been on their toes all through.

Say what you may about Major General Muhammadu Buhari but he genuinely mean well for the country and his name will forever be remembered in Nigeria.
Before you go on a criticism spree, take a minute and ask urself if Nigeria would have been better if Jonathan was the president between 2015 and 2019 and also, ask yourself if Atiku would have been the right option (Taking into cognisance what we know of the ex VP)

Major slow and steady wins the race.

The president is doing well in infrastructure. His undoing is nepotism in favour of his Hausa Fulani Muslim hagemony agenda.

I pray we vote in a better president 2023.

Baba I know that "uneasy lies the head that wears the crown" but damn, you used Nigeria to play "bet9ja virtual" with all your trial and error policies and that teleported Nigeria back to stone age.
More so, it is wrong for any one to call you 'Baba go slow' you are 'Baba reverse' until you get things right.
