According to Vanguard, The luncheon was organised by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Mrs Abike Dabiri- Erewa to mark the first Black History Month in Nigeria.
“My advice to Nigeria is this., I know that a lot of Nigerians feel a little displeasure with President Buhari moving too slow on some of his reforms. I will counsel Nigerians to say give this man the time he needs to do the job that he is doing. He is one of the most legitimate leaders that the continent has produced. And he would if you all just stick to him I assure you he is going to make Nigeria a better place,” he said.
He said that though it was not easy to say as a visitor but Nigerian would benefit if they supported him to complete his work According to him, I know for instance what your citizens will say to me, he will identify the corruption but won’t do anything, he says until the investigation is done. But that is the proper way to do that.
“You know fortunately he is an honest man but if he would say traditional just decide in his mind what is corrupt and not corrupt and just taking action without a process what will happen with the next guy that comes who might not be as honest as he is. So you need a process. So it is not about the person or personality but it is about the fact. So I will just counsel Nigerians, I know, I am a visitor it is really not my business but be careful before you vote this man out of office,” he said.
