Some activists and 350 civil society organisations (CSOs) have passed a vote of confidence in President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
They agreed that the current administration is one of the best in the nation’s history.
President of Coalition of Civil Societies and Media Executives for Good Governance in Nigeria, Omoba Kenneth Aigbegbele, who read the coalition’s position on Monday in Abuja, said President Buhari inherited a dysfunctional system, including the nation’s security architecture.
He said: “The security situation across sub-Saharan Africa is a fallout of the disintegration of the Libyan state with attendant proliferation of small arms. As such, Africans, and indeed Nigerians, are abreast of the concerted efforts of President Buhari to curtail the excesses of criminals.”
The activist noted that some non-governmental agencies and CSOs masquerading as the conscience of the nation had been wining and dining with the same administration since it assumed office in 2015.
Passing a vote of confidence in the President, Aigbegbele said: “After a critical evaluation and analysis of the administration of President Buhari in all ramifications, we now pass a vote of confidence in him for being alive to the primary responsibility of safeguarding lives and property across the country.
“We, therefore, call on Nigerians to discountenance, disregard and jettison the wolves crying foul where there is none. Nigerians should open their eyes and read between the lines.”
