Following the recent 30-day assessment of the new government led by President Buhari, and Buhari being referred to Baba Go-slow, former Nigerian Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon has pleaded with Nigerians not to rush the new president.
Speaking exclusively with the Nigerian Tribune, in Ibadan, Gowon said;
“Give him a chance. You cannot solve any problem within two or three days. People say they want a change but as far as the problem of Nigeria is concerned, you cannot do it in one day, in one month. It will take time before a lot of these changes would be done and done effectively.”
“Let us give Buhari the chance to do things in the proper way to be able to get a good result. I have read it in some papers where people question him that in 30 days nothing has been done. It is unnecessary.”
“They criticised me when I was Head of State that the civil war was taking too long. I said, Yes, do they know some of the problems that are involved in dealing with some of those problems?”
