Buhari’s only agenda is to make life better for Nigerians – Lai Mohammed

Some people have asked us why we are bringing this campaign without even fulfilling our own promise of change. And our answer is very simple: If for instance, this campaign had been on before now and the tenet of the campaign had been imbibed we would not be where we are today. If Nigerians had imbibed the spirit of the campaign, I am sure the kind of corruption, stealing, mindless destruction of assets, and the huge appetite for imported goods would have been checked and we would have probably had a healthier balance sheet than we have today.

Buhari should give way after four years – Alex Nwokedi

You should ask him, what programme does he have? I have told you agriculture and it is the mainstay of Nigerian economy right from time immemorial. Oil is just a recent thing. If we develop agriculture, you will see how less concerned we will naturally become about oil. Part of the problem is that Buhari has to be fair to all ethnic groups in Nigeria and not to pay attention to only one. It is not only when you embezzle money that they say you are dishonest.
