The President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday ordered all security personnel attached to him as well as his official escorts to obey traffic rules. This, according to a statement signed by the Director of Media and Publicity of the All Progressives Congress Presidential campaign council, Mallam Garba Shehu, is a demonstration of Buhari’s leadership style. Buhari was quoted as saying obedience to the law would be the guiding philosophy of his administration, adding that “without leadership by example, the ordinary citizens would become copycats of the lawlessness of their leaders.”
The President-elect advised his military and police security personnel to be in tune with his philosophy of “bringing the rule of law to bear on the conduct of leaders during their movements on public roads.”
It’s the over-zealous escorts that uses sirens to terrorize the citizenry when they are running errands that should be cautioned!
