As the nation enters the transition period of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (next.), It is only natural that the dialogue begin to lean towards his legacy.
In many forums, there has been a debate on what Buhari will leave as a legacy after his eight-year rule as president.
All over the world, outgoing presidents have assets that they want to be remembered for once they step down. This explains why almost all former American presidents have well-funded presidential libraries named after them. This helped to record their activities while serving at Head Office. President Buhari has consistently stated that he does not want the president’s library because the last thing he did was end up being destroyed by corruption.
The article is deeply concerned that Buhari’s legacy will depend on him as he leaves office, especially as an internal source reveals that a major discussion of the very few Mr President confides in has been a talk about his now highly dependent legacy and quality. the character of the person to whom he was given a seat.
Nigerians believe that President Buhari will not fight corruption for seven years and then turn Nigeria over to a corrupt leader. I want to make the point that the only thing Mr. President has to say about his efforts on the current big issues facing Nigeria is to hand over to the candidate who understands the complexity and continuity but, most importantly, the unpolished one. corruption.
Certainly the President distances himself from any such person and in response to how he wants to be remembered in my opinion, which will largely depend on who he will be supporting to take over in 2023!
Buhari knows that whether he builds a model or a library for the president or university, that will not be enough to make his legacy a center. If, like many previous attempts, she has plunged into corruption, then her legacy — which she has worked hard over the years — may be shattered.
Buhari’s legacy, for the first time, will be based on his demonstration of full commitment to free and fair elections and the party foundation. He demonstrated this commitment, especially during the recently concluded All Progressive Congress national convention. His enthusiasm for the country to sign the Electoral Act to ensure the morale of the 2023 national elections also shows this.
According to her spokeswoman Femi Adesina, President Buhari will ensure that “… there is a free, fair and credible election; that no one will use money and resources to hide from the country’s leadership.”
More than just giving us a free and fair election is to ensure that wallets and pre-apartheid monarchs do not avoid party flags by 2023.
The collective fortune of the Nigerian people is the Buhari-led government that has worked hard to build and protect it over the past seven years should not go to the dogs.
This starts with who you will support in the run-up to the forthcoming party primaries.
As the leader of the APC, he must ensure that he gives the party flag to someone who instills integrity, hard work and patriotism and can support the presidential party.
Buhari said in an interview with CHANNELS TV in January that he would have to hide the person he wanted because that person “could be removed if I mentioned. I had better keep it. ”
Buhari knew what he was talking about when he made a statement to Seun Okinbaloye and Maupe Ogun-Yusuf of CHANNELS TV during the interview. You know you are surrounded by hopeless hawks who want to spend any money to get an APC ticket.
We recall that when one of the then dictators tried to outrun the running for president in the 2006 Peoples Democratic Party, he was shocked when his colleague won the day. The rest, as they say, is history.
Mr President uses his powers to protect his legacy of integrity, fight corruption and work hard, his legacy will depend on who he supports the APC ticket in 2023.
The poles are too high to throw his pearls in front of the pigs.
But if you ask anyone in any region of Nigeria today, it is normal and in my opinion that Prof Yemi Osinbajo is the only candidate who can take this great position, with skill, integrity, trust and ability to win, the APC will lose the presidency if anyone else is elected receiving a ticket.
