Nigerians have had to weigh their options, with some seeking alternatives, following the recent report of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration failing to pay special allowance to security operatives attached to the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
According to the report, the development is causing dissatisfaction among the security personnel. Prior to when the present administration came into power, all the security agents at the Villa under former President Goodluck Jonathan enjoyed the allowance up until March, 2015, while his administration left those of April and May, 2015, unpaid.
Some Nigerians have aired their views on the rather controversial issue, below are their thoughts.
Stanley Nnabuagha said: “Some say I rely on luck, but was it luck that got rid of fuel queues, revived our textile industries, rescued our banking sector, ensured total radar coverage for Nigeria, is reviving our rail infrastructure or expanded the economy by over 8% making Nigeria the 4th fastest growing economy in the world? Those are the result of hard work. Only hard work can make Nigeria work – GEJ”
Onyebuchi Nwafor said: “We’re missing you the immediate past president, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan,the one and only true democratic president this country ever had, the silent achiever.”
Irem Kelechi attempted hitting President Buhari and the APC below that belt with his statement. He said: “And he said he is not a one chance president? Keep promising Nigerians. All promises cancelled (APC).”
According to Emmanuel Tom, “Those who voted for Buhari, have more now to regret”. However, some other Nigerians did not see the situation as one that should be yardstick for comparing Jonathan and Buhari.
Some even went as much as sighting the trending issue of the missing Chibok girls that were abducted about 2-years ago. They claimed that the incident occurred under the watch of Jonathan and as reports have it, it was a lack of interest on the part of the immediate past administration that made the situation linger this long.
The present APC government still has some time to prove themselves worthy of the votes that brought them into power, do you think they would deliver? Would they out-perform the PDP administration that had been in power for about 16 years?
