Give Buhari Another Four Years, Oba Of Lagos Says
The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, has thrown his weight behind the return of President Muhammadu Buhari for the second term in office, calling on Nigerians to vote for him in 2019.
According to Akiolu who spoke at the opening ceremony of the 17th Lagos Housing Fair, on Monday, if Buhari is given another chance, the president will be able to reduce the corruption that had been bedevilling Nigeria to the minimum and be able to improve the economy.
The traditional ruler stated that he preferred Buhari’s administration to that of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
He also noted that the former President Goodluck Jonathan would have been a better leader but he failed because he listened to selfish people who were bent on looting the nation dry.
“Jonathan was a victim of circumstances,” Akiolu stated.
He said, “Buhari has to do more, I agree, but we all have to assist by giving him another four years and see where he will take Nigeria to. I am supporting what is good for Nigeria.
He said that God is behind Buhari now and should be given the opportunity to perform what God had sent him to do to save Nigeria.
