Nigerians side with Buhari in spite of slow pace, crumbled economy

The 9 month span of Mr. Muhammadu Buhari’s presidency is not long enough to pass judgment on his stewardship but good enough to predict the future of Nigeria. ENCOMIUM weekly had a chat with Nigerians who bared their minds on the President’s performance since he assumed office.

Mrs. Folake

I am not happy at all with the way the president’s regime is going; we are not seeing the change as promised not even enjoying it for a second. More hands should be on deck so that we can enjoy our civic rights because the way l am seeing things now, we are heading no where ahead of the future if we continue like this. I am begging the President on behalf of my family so we could survive in the nearest future.


Mr. Agbo

President Buhari is trying his best, the change is here, it is we Nigerians that are rubbishing his name. One has to be patient to get what he or she wants. The change is a gradual process, the president only wants support from us, it is not going to come in just 9 or 10 months he has just spend in office. Give him time; he is human like me and you.


Mr. Jeleel Babatunde

I believe the President is trying his best. We voted change not magic. Nigerians are complaining because they don’t know that a lot of damage had been done to this country in the past and it would take years of good governance to get things back in place. I think we should continue to pray for the President and our country, there is surely light at the end of the tunnel.


Mr. Diekola Adeniyi

I think he is doing well, but to be sincere he is being too slow. Why can’t he just leave those that have looted Nigerians money in the past to God and face his own primary assignment? There is no money outside, people are not happy, we want to see the change we voted for.


Mr. Falana

We said we wanted change but we have not seen it yet. It’s almost a year since he assumed office, yet nothing to show for it. No improvement, in fact things are getting worse by the day. No fuel, there is hike in food prices just because dollar has risen. Everything has turned upside down yet he travels all the time, wasting our money on unnecessary trips. God should just take control.


Mrs. Emeka

He is really trying and we pray God should continue to help him. At least, he has worked hard to eliminate corruption, it is not easy. Things have really been damaged before he assumed office; he is not going to fix everything overnight. Nigerians should just be patient with him.
