In the the heat of the on-going fuel scarcity in the country, Hon. Tajudeen Obasa advised President Buhari to honourably accept responsibility for the unavailability of petrol and find a lasting solution to the consequent difficulty experienced by Nigerian citizens. He further urged Buhari and his colleagues to quit apportioning blame over the countless number of problems presently facing the nation.
The Nigerian lawmaker representing Ojo Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, admonished him to constitute a team by bringing together a number of competent individuals who are equal to the task of assessing the achievement of the previous government, not considering their creed, calling or political affiliations, and from there, the process of rebuilding the nation can start.
Hon. Tajudeen Obasa who is representing his people under umbrella of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), spoke in a statement issued by his media aide, Mr. Opeyemi Ahmed, stating that:
“Across the globe, leaders of nations are elected to proffer solutions to problems, to govern isn’t an easy task. Great leaders don’t criticize their predecessors, they call for patience and understanding to salvage the situation.
“The task of transforming the nooks and crannies of 774 Local Governments won’t be achieved by press releases of “Jonathan this, Jonathan that”, it can only be achieved with concrete plans that will meet reality.
“A government elected for four years by 15 million Nigerians can’t blame an individual for the duration, rather than trade blames, committees should be set up to assess the progress made by the previous administrations in order to build a better nation.
“Governance is beyond propaganda, good policies tackle corruption, to fight corruption shouldn’t be the singular goal of a government. There are many sectors of the economy that needs the attention of the number one citizen, corruption can only be fought collectively with all hands on deck not on the pages of newspapers to score cheap political points.”
