100 days: Buhari cannot be called ‘Baba Go slow’ – APC


– Adams Oshiomhole has scored President Muhammadu Buhari high as his administration marks its 100 days in office


– The APC national chairman made a comparison of Buhari’s first 100 days in office in 2015 and 2019


– According to Oshiomhole, Buhari is now “Baba fast” as opposed to his first tenure when he was labelled “Baba go slow”


The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said President Muhammadu Buhari has performed well in his first 100 days in office in his second tenure. He said Nigerians can no longer refer to him as “Baba go slow”.


Speaking in Abuja on Friday, September 6, the party’s national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, said Buhari had done well in his first 100 days in office. He said the president can be referred to as ‘Baba Fast’.


This was disclosed in a statement by its national publicity secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu.


Buhari had been labelled “Baba go slow” during his first tenure by those not satisfied with his pace at taking action.

Oshiomhole scored Buhari high while also outlining what the president had achieved in in 100 days.


The statement read: “President Buhari can beat his chest to say he has started well, he has started fast. You cannot call him Baba go slow now, this time he is Baba fast.


“Everything is about comparison, because in 2015, after a hundred days we did not have a federal cabinet, the president had not appointed ministers. This time in hundred days, from my interaction with a number of ministers, even the budget for 2020 is already being prepared.


“Ministers have been assigned to their various ministries. They have already started the process of taking over and trying to understand the challenges. Government is already effectively on ground,” the statement quoted Oshiomhole as saying.


He also mentioned the current issues in South Africa, saying Buhari’s prompt reaction is a clear indication that Nigeria will not accept being humiliated. “I think the bold step he has taken is refreshing,” he added. According to him, all these show a remarkable difference in comparison to 2015 when Buhari first came into power.


He added that the recent retreat Buhari organised for ministers was not about entertainment but to discuss about Nigeria and the administration’s policy choices.
