APC chieftain, Tony Momoh, who once asked Nigerians to stone party members if the party doesn’t deliver, has backed the President Buhari-Led Administration as he said that the President has done well and can seek a second term after his tenure expires next year.
In an interview with The Nation, Momoh who is a one-time Minister of Information and Culture, said those who are saying the Buhari-led administration has done badly were either playing politics or refused to check the facts.
“President Buhari has done well based on the facts available and not sentiments. He has done well in the delivery of his campaign promises despite the big problems he met on ground. For example, let us look at the area of security, before Buhari came in, the Boko Haram insurgents was operating almost uninhibited, to the extent of seizing territories. But for Buhari’s intervention, Only God knows what would have happened to the country because of Boko Haram. Also, while some other countries are still wriggling under recession caused by crash in commodity prices, the country is out and is even doing well in the area of diversification. Even the World Bank has just predicted that the country’s GDP will further grow in 2018, there are also monumental gains in the fight against corruption. I reviewed a book recently on the scorecard of the president and I was pleasantly surprised by some of the revelations about Buhari’s performance. Those who do not know, should go and check the facts, Buhari has done well as president,”
