Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari is not a ‘failure’ adding that his administration has not failed Nigerians.
Dalung, in a series of tweets, criticized the PDP and ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, describing his time in power as a ‘Locust Era’. He wrote;
“For all, I know about PMB, he has always answered the call of Nigerians who believe in his rear leadership qualities. He was even dragged into politics at the first instance. He is preoccupied with his mandate, Nigerians will appropriately determine whether he will contest in 2019.
“The right of those asking PMB not to contest 2019 ends where our right to demand that he should contest. Performance of leadership is not measured by miracles infected minds but objective development indices which PMB is unrivaled.
“If PMB’s 3years in office is defined by his opponents as failure then we are left with the definition of 16 years of his predecessors as locust era. Even though much still need to be done, PMB is not relenting because he is a man of Integrity.
“PMB is a personal asset of the masses of Nigeria, he represents their vision and aspirations, they trust him, so it will be better to prevail on the masses instead of wasting energy on calumny and blackmail which cannot produce positive results.”
