A former governor of Oyo state and National Leader Accord party, Senator Rashidi Ladoja has warned critics of President Muhammadu Buhari to leave him alone saying it is too early to condemn or criticize him.
“It is too early to criticize President Muhammadu Buhari, so why are you criticizing him when he just spent 30 days in office. We should allow him to do his work, he is up to the task because he has been there before, so in six months to this time, that is when we can assess him, he is taking his stocks, we should not be in hurry,” Ladoja said.
Speaking shortly after he observed the Eld-el-Fitr prayer with other Muslims in the state, the governorship candidate of Accord party in the last elections in the state noted that democracy requires patience unlike military that acts with immediate effect. That policies made in democracy involves patience to be introduced.
“This is not military regime that takes decisions with immediate effect, he has to look at the effect of policies on the people, the national assembly is there, so he has to take his time.
“As I said, it is too early to criticize the president now, if you have advice for him, send it across to him, if you have advice for him, you should be able to give him, and not to start criticizing him when he has just spent less that 100 days in the office.”
Ladoja however expressed optimism in the judiciary saying the case he instituted against the victory of Governor Abiola Ajimobi will be fairly delivered despite the postponement of the hearing.
“I trust the judiciary, they know they have 180 days to conduct the case, I don’t have any reason to doubt them despite the postponement of the hearings.”
Ladoja also noted that the crises rocking th national assembly can only be solved when the members are ready to solve it.
According to him, “Those in the National Assembly are capable to solve their problem when they are ready to do it, the issue of interference will reduce crises among them”.
