An American trained scholar and President of Merit Group, a construction consortium based in the USA, Dr. Nathaniel Uba, has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election as a blessing to Nigeria and the best thing to happen to the country.
According to the technocrat, an independent economy like ours, where ingredients that propel fast economic growth are lacking, needs a patient and prudent manager like Buhari, who is allergic to stealing or amassing needless wealth.
Uba said without serious corruption war, the economic amelioration of the country will be a fiction due to the type of economy Nigeria runs.
He said: “No country can strive with such level of corruption manipulations as found in Nigeria. I praise the Nigeria masses for making the best choice by re-electing president Buhari at this critical time where the seed of corruption is still biting hard on the economy.”
Uba further praised President Buhari’s anti-corruption campaign for its fruitfulness. Hope hoped in the president’s ability to fulfill his electoral promises, and assured Nigerians of the president’s capacity to deal with the challenges.
He also urged Nigerians not to be deceived by the unnecessary criticisms of the opposition party, but they instead should instead rally round the president and support him to succeed.
