100 days in office: Lagos legislators commend Buhari

By Ebun Sessou

Commendations for President Muhammadu Buhari on his 100 days in office have come from two members of the Lagos State House of Assembly.

They are Hon. Sanai Agunbiade, representating Ikorodu Constituency I, and who is also the Majority Leader of the House, and Hon. Moshood Oshun representing Lagos Mainland Constituency II.


Speaking exclusively to Saturday Vanguard, Hon. Agunbiade said, “President Muhammadu Buhari has shown himself as a man of substance who is truthful on his electoral promises.”

He insisted that one of the things the President said during the campaign was that he would fight corruption to standstill, and that the major challenge Nigeria had was insecurity. “He (Buhari) has travelled to countries including Chad, Cameroun and the United States of America, trying to find solution to insurgency in Nigeria. He has created multi-national guard to combat Boko Haram.”

In his comments, Hon. Oshun shared similar views with Hon. Agunbiade. He said the President had fulfulled his electoral promises, and that he was optimistic that the President would balance his appointments. “Honestly, the President has set the ball rolling”, he said. “During the campaign, he promised to tackle some issues relating to the economy, insecurity and corruption and that is what he is doing. He has met with many African leaders and heads of communities on how to tackle Boko Haram in Nigeria.”

Speaking further, Hon. Oshun said, “a vessel was seized by security personnel recently as some people wanted to use it to steal about 100,000 litres of fuel. I can’t remember the last time we heard of such seizure in Nigeria, but now there are so many checks and balances in place. We are now talking about subsidy and so many things, which shows that somebody is working. PMB is not corrupt; he cannot be bribed
