IBADAN – I Ibikunle Amosun, the former governor of Ogun State and senator for the Ogun Central Senatorial District, has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari has done more good for the country and will leave office as a hero.
He cited leadership as Nigeria’s most serious problem, while praising President Buhari for being fair to Nigerians.
At the 2021 Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Oyo State Council in Ibadan, Amosun contrasted the All Progressives Congress (APCsix-year )’s administration with the Peoples Democratic Party’s sixteen-year rule, noting that Nigeria has fared well under President Muhammadu Buhari’s six-year leadership, and the progress is visible to all.
He claimed that the current issues confronting the country, particularly insecurity, are the result of the PDP’s sixteen years of misrule, while urging all Nigerians to rally behind President Buhari as he battled the country’s many problems.
“The Buhari administration has placed a strong emphasis on agriculture and infrastructure. Farmers have gotten more favorable loan terms than in the past. Before Buhari’s election in 2015, Nigeria’s rail system was regarded as the worst in Africa. Buhari has initiated, completed, and delivered remarkable major rail networks, and Nigeria now has the best rail system in West Africa, resulting in the creation of tens of thousands of jobs.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has done so much for the country, and when he leaves office in 2023, he will have done more for the country than any previous government.”
The union also presented Amosun with an award of excellence as the Nation’s Bridge Builder and Icon of the Progressive Bloc, which he was represented by Barr. Taiwo Adeoluwa at the event. Dr. (Mrs) Florence Ajimobi, the wife of late Senator Abiola Ajimobi, former Governor of Oyo State, presented the award for his progressive ingenuity, friendly administrative policies, and expanding cooperation among APC chieftains across the country.
Professor Adeolu Akande (Chairman, Nigeria Communications Commission), who also served as the event’s Chairman, Alhaji Bola Adeyemi, Chief Wole Elegbede, Hon. Raheem Ajayi Baglo, and Dr. Oye were among Senator Ibikunle Amosun’s delegation who attended.
