Prince Tony Momoh, a former Minister of Information and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said President Muhammadu Buhari is laying foundation for a prosperous Nigeria now and will complete the foundation during his second term in office.
Speaking in an interview with INDEPENDENT, Momoh who appealed to Nigerians to ensure Buhari wins re-election next year said he is sure the president will win the election with more massive votes than many people can think of.
Also speaking on the claims by some Nigerians that the president has not done enough in the last three years, Momoh said only impatient Nigerians are criticising the President, adding that Buhari was well prepared for the presidency owing to the experienced he has garnered over the years.
Buhari is laying a foundation and I plead with Nigerians to ensure that he returns and I believe he will return with more massive votes than anyone can think of now. If he returns, he is going to finish the foundation he is laying now.
“Nigeria has a future and a mission and the foundation is being laid now and Buhari is prepared for it. Look at his background. He is the only person who in Nigeria said he wants to be President and he didn’t ask for any other job and he became President.
“Do you think all these preparations in 2003, 2007, 2011 and now is nothing? Even before the Civil War, in 1966 he has been in public life, lived everywhere and train everywhere in Nigeria. Do you think he will go to that office with empty head?
“It is people who are impatient that are criticising him. Everything is structured. Of course, there are lots of people around him who will normally try to mislead him but he doesn’t take action on anything until he is convinced about it,” he said.
