President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the change promised by his government was not an event but a process which will require more than one election cycle to fix and deliver.
The President represented by the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola who disclosed this on Monday in Lagos while delivering the 75th anniversary business lecture of the Island Club gave the assurance that the fruits of the efforts his administration has made in fixing the country in the last three and a half years would soon begin to manifest.
“It took more than one term and one election cycle of the Chairman of Island Club to build this hall just as it will require more than one election cycle to build the nation and deliver change,” the President said.
The Presidency on Monday described the decision of the opposition to challenge the eligibility of President Muhammadu Buhari to run for the nation’s top office next year without submitting his West African School Certificate (WASC).
As contained in a statement issued late Monday by Presidential Media Assistant, Garba Shehu, in Abuja, the Presidency describing the effort as an old story and “waste of time,” because “we have the record of this and of higher qualifications obtained by hard work and truly merited by Mr President.”
“As Femi Adesina stated clearly, it is a settled issue in the courts. To approach the court to pursue a matter long settled by the temple of justice is an abuse of the judicial system. It is shameful, disgusting and disgraceful,” he stressed.
