Buhari: I Will Surprise Those Calling Me “Baba Go Slow”

buhari baba go slow

President Buhari has said the country’s democratic system of government is responsible for his ‘slow performance’ since elected in 2015.

The former military ruler in Nigeria from December 1983 to August 1985, said the processes in the democratic system makes government less decisive compared to the military.

“Fighting corruption. Yes, we are slow because the system is slow. It’s not Baba that is slow but it is the system so I am going by this system and I hope we will make it,” Buhari said.

“I told you what I did when I was in uniform but now when I have to go by this system (Democracy,) where people have to be arrested and then prosecuted, taken to court and then with evidence.”

The president, as a candidate in 2014 campaigned on three focal points of security, reviving the economy and fight against corruption.

The president said his decision to play by democratic rules of government has made critics nickname him “Baba go slow”.

“We will collect back what they had taken illegally and for doing that, people are calling me ‘Baba go slow’.”

He, however, said;

“I am going slowly but whatever the case, I will not stop pointing fingers at those who have abused trust by taking money that does not belong to them. I will keep on trying to do my best for this country and get back what belongs to the country.”

Buhari said the focus for his re-election campaign had not changed from what the All Progressives Congress (APC) outlined in 2015.

He said his campaign which will commence in geopolitical zones will focus on the issue of fighting corruption, insecurity and improving the economy.

“The three fundamental things we campaigned with are still very relevant. On improving the economy, we have done well in agriculture, and those who embraced farming are not regretting it.”

“We are now attaining food security. “The third thing with which we will campaign is the issue of corruption. We will go from geopolitical zone to geopolitical zone, to remind the people of our promises in 2015,” Buhari said.

Buhari will begin his re-election campaign at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, Akwa Ibom on Friday, December 28.

      Guy hunter, please stop cursing this man, he is not the one behind our present hardship since this has been building up from the inception of third republic under Olusegun Obasanjo. We all agreed that our economic situation is not moving at the pace we all expected but this administration is far better than the previous administration.

      If Buhari is rejected to run for the second term, this nation is in deep problem. I will never agree to taking power from Buhari and give it to Atiku. It doesn’t make any sense. Lack of our foresight and inappropriate decision is what led us our present economic woes not Buhari. We all crying foul that Buhari is not doing it fine, does that mean the next thing for us is to pick Atiku the most corrupt politician of our time to come and lead this nation. Why can’t we all sit down and think about what is good for us? When you guys gather behind Atiku that means you are encouraging corruption. Those corrupt people will never realize their mistakes. It is like giving them a blank check.

      In a democracy setting we can remove Buhari by our votes but have we run out of people with integrity to run for this office or you have no other option than Atiku? Sometimes my heart bleeds when I see some of us reasoning like 3rd grader.

      As Buhari had said, it is different to run a government under democratic system than under Military system because under Military system Atiku will be in jail by now. In democratic system, we have go through different channels to secure justice against corrupt people. These people always use democracy to evade justice by delaying judgement and buying time all the way to stop their convictions. At least for now, Buhari is doing his best especially in Agricultural section, soft loan for small entrepreneurs, fighting against corruption, retrieving our stolen wealth and tackling the problem of security. Left for me, I prefer Buhari to stay put for now until we come up with a better candidate who can perform a magic that we all expecting.

    Whether you campaign on not and still maintain your points on fighting corruption of which you are the cause, YOU ARE TRILLION SLOW FOR MY LIKING. You have so dealt with Nigerian economy that many have lost their jobs, divorce everywhere as a result of couples not providing for themselves, people dying everyday because of malnutrition, diseases that people can not afford the treatment, fights and anger and many more.

    You will surprise yourself, Buhari was voted in to tackle the system which people believed he knew much about, now, this one is here blaming the system,meaning he don’t even have idea about the system from the beginning.

    The slow system you are even blaming is when it comes to your fellow cabals, the masses are only witnessing militocracy as you are unleashing your terror through your kinsmen in the name of Bokoharam and herdsmen with impunity.
