Critics have written off Buhari as a failure, well, they have a right to do so - Tinubu
Critics have written off Buhari as a failure, well, they have a right to do so - Tinubu

One of the national leaders of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu has used the occasion marking the annulled June 12, 1993 election to appraise two years of the President Muhammadu Buhari led-administration.

The former Lagos governor in a statement made available to The Newsroom, said the administration had already taken impressive strides in addressing the country’s challenges.

“This year’s commemoration of the anniversary of June 12 coincides roughly with two years in office of the All Progressives Congress at the federal level.

“Some critics, particularly of the opposition, are already writing off the government as a failure. Well, that is their prerogative and in accordance with their rights in a democratic polity.

“Two years into its term, any objective analyst will agree that the APC has already taken impressive strides to clear the Augean stables it inherited from the past administration.

“Concrete gains are being made in curtailing corruption, reviving and diversifying the economy and strengthening national security, even though much harder work still lie ahead admittedly,” he said.

According to him, there is no doubt that once the APC federal government successfully contains the challenges, it can more urgently begin to address other planks of its manifesto.

“But even in our darkest moments, let the torch of democracy be our guide to the higher and nobler plains of good governance, strong institutions, reverence for the rule of law and a continually-improving and growing economy.

“It is only through strengthening the institutions, practices and procedures of democracy that we, like the Americans, foremost exemplars of the democratic ideal, can ceaselessly strive moment by moment, day by day and year by year to continually aspire toward the more perfect union of our dreams,” Tinubu said.
