Nigerians expect you to do more than you did as Head of State – Maitama Sule tells Buhari

A former Federal Commissioner of Public Complaints, Maitama Sule, has observed that Nigerians currently expect more from the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari than they got from his government while he was a military Head of State from 1983 to 1985.
The former federal commissioner, who served in 1976, advised that the fight against corruption by the present government must be seen to be yielding positive impacts, since Nigerians have high hopes in the President.
Speaking at the 8th Annual Forum of the Laureates of the Nigerian National Order of Merit on Tuesday in Abuja, he said, “When Buhari was the military Head of State, he was able to do three or four things. He was able instill discipline in the society. He was able to fight corruption, among other things. But this time around, we expect Muhammadu Buhari to do more than that. He did it before; he can do it now and even more.”
The elder statesman noted the present government must not fail to deliver on its promises, insisting that if anything should go wrong, the country’s leaders would be held responsible.
“If anything goes wrong, it is the leadership. If our leaders are corrupt, if they are immodest or indisciplined, so will their followers be. But I have hope. With the present administration, I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel,” he said.
Sule, who advocated the creation of a ministry of national guidance, noted that the ministry would carry out all necessary reorientation programmes for Nigerians, educate local and international citizens on the customs and traditions in the country and project the nation’s image in the best light globally.   posted by @alabareport1
