Former House of Representatives Speaker Dimeji Bankole spoke on Sunday evening in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, while delivering the fifth anniversary lecture of the Ijebu News Xtra magazine.
“I feel sorry for President Buhari. He can’t solve the problem in four years. He needs a second term. No economic reform or policy can be formulated and implemented to produce the expected results within four years, it will take at least seven years.
“He is doing a thankless job, now like the teachers. No magic or miracle about this, we have to do the work and the government needs support. It is a long distance race.
“The question is what are you prepared to sacrifice? What risks are you going to take to make Nigeria better? We must make sacrifices to make the country work,” Bankole said.
