See the relaxation of the assertion under…

Oshuntokun, a newspaper columnist and public affairs commentator, has by no means hidden his antipathy in direction of the Muhammadu Buhari administration, however to go on nationwide tv and inform lies of the most heinous form betrays a thoughts taken fully over by in poor health needs towards his personal nation.

Sallah Day had handed quietly and peacefully, with out even a firecracker going off, not to mention bomb blast. That was opposite to what used to occur earlier than the creation of the Buhari administration, when such festivals have been turned to orgy of killings in lots of components of the nation by insurgents. Apparently, enemies of peace and progress had anticipated a return to the notorious previous, thus Oshuntokun appeared on tv with his bag of lies.

When these on the programme remonstrated with him that they weren’t conscious of any bomb blast on that day, he stood his floor, all in a futile bid to puncture the successes recorded by authorities in the space of safety.

Oshuntokun and his ilk ought to notice that that is the solely nation we now have, and we will not swallow poison and count on it to kill the subsequent particular person. What we sow is what we reap.

Fortunately, nonetheless, these for a peaceable, united and cohesive Nigeria are greater than these towards it. That’s the reason these with baleful, hateful ideas would by no means win.

The tripod targets of securing the nation, combating corruption, and reviving the financial system are central to the Buhari administration. Authorities is making strides in the three areas, and the conquests proceed.
