Nigerians don't expect quick change - Buhari

President-elect Muhammadu Buhari said yesterday that there won’t be quick fixes following 16 years of rot.

He urged Nigerians to temper their expectations from his administraton due to take office on May 29, “with some justice”.


Gen. Buhari told a delegation of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), led by first and Second Republic Minister Alhaji Maitama Sule, who visited him at the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign secretariat in Abuja, that his administration will inherit a huge decay.

“The biggest message is to try and persuade the people that it is not possible to change the state of affairs now. It took 16 years and those 16 years, most of you know it better than me; Nigeria earned revenue more than what it earned from 1914 till then.

“You know that we used to have Nigeria Airways, Nigerian Shipping Line, Nigerian Railways. Where are they now? Where is the infrastructure?

Consider what we earned between then and now and what we earned in-between and what is on ground.
