PDP BoT secretary defends Buhari, says president not slow

The secretary, Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Walid Jibrin, has observed that 100 days of the present administration in office are not enough to assess its performance.

In an interview with journalists on Friday in Nasarawa, he urged Nigerians to give the administration more time before any assessment.

“I don’t agree that Buhari is slow and I don’t believe that 100 days are enough to judge anybody or any one in office; it is just for one to start planning very well.

“Let us give him and other leaders up to six months and after that, we could start assessing the administration,’’ he said.

Mr. Jibrin also called on Buhari to be fair to all political parties and individuals in his war against corruption.

“If President Buhari decides to probe some individuals both in APC and PDP, so be it. I will support him if he is doing the right thing for the betterment of the society,’’ he added.

He urged Muslims and other Nigerians to use the period Eid el-Kabir to pray for peaceful co-existence among the diverse ethnic, religious and political groups in the country.

The secretary said PDP was working to win the presidential election in 2019, insisting that PDP would change Nigeria positively when it assumed office.
