The paramount ruler of Egbaland Oba Adedotun Gbadebo says president Muhammadu Buhari has charted a worthy part for the country and should be re-elected for consolidation.

This is coming barely 24hours after former president Olusegun Obasanjo lambasted president Buhari over what he described as a failed leadership.

The paramount ruler who worked with Buhari in his days in the military said policies and programmes of Buhari’s administration would take time to germinate and as such, the administration should be given another four years.

Gbadebo stated this when a former governor of Abia, Orji Uzor Kalu, led members of the National Movement for the Re-election of President Buhari, on a courtesy visit to his palace in Abeokuta.
The monarch, who described Buhari as a focused and sincere leader, said Nigeria could not afford to allow the policies initiated by the Buhari’s administration to be discarded should another leader be elected.

He said, “I am part of the campaign team soliciting that Buhari should be given another chance to lead for another four years to complete the great work he has started.

“Those who drafted the constitution to allow for a second term have envisaged that while a leader takes time to formulate policies and put programmes in place, he needs more time for them to germinate before they begin to translate such to benefits for the people.

“Unfortunately, policy somersault has become a prominent feature in the history of governance in the nation.
“When a leader goes after four years, virtually everything he has done will be turned over by whoever comes after and we can no longer afford this wastage.”

The monarch described Kalu as a detribalised Nigerian who, in spite of being an indigene of the South East Zone, had continued to campaign for the re-election of the president.

Earlier in his address, the former governor had commended the monarch for the peace initiatives in the state.

Kalu noted that a prominent feature of the peace initiative was the freedom to support any candidate in an election, declaring that members of the group have been travelling across the country to solicit support for the president ahead of the 2019 polls.

His words: “We are for oneness of this country. We are for leaders who are sincere to lead us well and who are equally committed to the rules and tenets of democracy.
“The greatest challenge of our country is leaders not obeying the law.
“When they are leaders, they did not obey the law and when they go out of leadership, they criticise everybody who wants to obey the law.
“President Buhari has continued to adhere to the tenets of democracy and abide by the constitutional provisions of the country in tackling the challenges of the nation.”
