Don’t be vindictive, group tells Buhari, Osinbajo


The President-elect, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) and the Vice-president-elect, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, have been advised not to embark on a vindictive mission against perceived enemies.

A faith-based group, Christian Conscience, said this on Sunday in a statement.

Signed by the Chairman and Publicity Secretary of the group, Chief Enock Ajoboso, and Mr. Tunji Oguntuase, respectively, the statement urged the president-elect and the vice-president elect to see their victory as a divine victory for Nigerians.

The group admonished them to urgently put in place strategies to revamp the nation’s economy and tackle insecurity, corruption, and other problems confronting the nation.

“Your election is God-ordained. You must justify the confidence reposed in you by the majority of Nigerians, who cried to God for a change for an improved and egalitarian society. You must see yourselves as fathers of a modern Nigeria and forgive those who unjustly crucified your team before the elections.

“For the nation to compete with other developing nations, decisive actions are urgently needed to curb needless wastage in governance as well as to nip on the bud the lingering insurgency in the northwestern part of the country.

“The incoming administration must improve the lingering epileptic power supply, strive to provide qualitative education and improved infrastructure. The new administration must also build efficient and effective refineries that will put a stop at fuel importation that has become our albatross.

The statement further commended President Goodluck Jonathan for for conceding defeat even before the final announcement of the eventual winners of the presidential election.

“President Goodluck Jonathan has not only become a statesman by his action, he has written his name in gold locally and internationally because African leaders are known for sit-tight tendencies but in the face of all odds, he has distinguished himself as a worthy leader,” the statement said.
