President Muhammadu Buhari has yet again pleaded with Nigerians to exercise patience with his administration regarding the appointment of political office holders.
Speaking to Nigerians in the Diaspora in Washington on Wednesday, Buhari blamed the development on the 16-year rule of the Peoples Democratic Power (PDP).
He said; “In some quarters, they are now calling me ‘Baba Go Slow’. I’m going to go slow and steady.”
“The economy is in an extremely bad shape following 16 years of bad government by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which ran down the oil refineries and had the treasury in their pockets.
“Two hundred and fifty thousand barrels per day of Nigerian crude are being stolen and people sell and put the money into individual accounts.
“Corruption in Nigeria has virtually developed into a culture where honest people are abused. We need to put some sense into governance and deal with corruption.”
