Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, on Sunday, expressed optimism that President Muhammadu Buhari’s policies and programmes would impact positively on Nigerians.
Mr. Oshiomhole said in Auchi, Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo, that “Buhari has the political will to make things better for Nigerians.
“I know that President Buhari will do better, because we had a meeting with him last week, and he is very conscious that he became president courtesy of the ordinary people, particularly the poor.
“He is very committed at fashioning out policies and programmes, social infrastructure and physical infrastructure that will impact directly on the lives of average persons.
“So, I can assure you that the President is determined to ensure that he justifies the confidence reposed in him.’’
The governor, however, urged Nigerians to be patient, stressing that “there will be no quick fix measures because Buhari inherited a treasury that is almost empty.
“All the same, he has not come to lament that, but, he has come to give a new hope and we are more inspired now.’’
He then urged Nigerians to support the President and his administration to deliver people-oriented programmes.
