The Emir of Borgu Kingdom, Alhaji Muhammad Sani Haliru Dantoro (Kitoro 1V), has called for Nigerians to be patient with the All Progressives Congress, APC-led government, saying the President Muhammadu Buhari cannot perform miracle.
He said the president cannot clean up the mess created by previous administrations of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, in three years.
“Naturally, traditional rulers are not partisan. You don’t meddle into political matters, but it is expedient that I talk about the current government and its expectations for the 2019 general election”, the monarch told Leadership.
“Before President Buhari came to power in 2015, the price of crude oil in the international market was very high. Under PDP, the Boko Haram insurgents were on the rampage, maiming and killing innocent citizens.
“Like today Friday, if you are going to the Mosque, military men will heavily guard it. On Sundays it is the same thing; worshippers cannot worship freely in Churches. There were military checkpoints at every kilometer. Life then was generally unsafe.
“Just as we all know that insurgency cannot be wiped out in such a short time, today, life is generally safer in Nigeria. Heavy military check points that were usually seen at every kilometer has gradually disappeared, giving way to safer and more relaxed quality of life. The days of bomb blowing at motor parks are gone for good.
