In his 2018 Democracy day speech, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo said its not fair for anybody to compare the present administration’s performance in just three years to the 16 years spent by the Peoples Democratic Party.

He said the fact that the opposition PDP had started assessing the present government even shortly after spending two years in office showed that “we have performed well.” Osinbajo spoke at a gala night/dinner organised to round off activities marking the 2018 Democracy Day saying it was important for the current government officials to thank God for having been in office for three years.

He said he would not have believed the prophesy if anybody had told him five years ago that he would become the nation’s Vice-President. Osinbajo said the administration had recorded great success.

He that for those who had been in government for 16 years comparing themselves to an administration that was just three years, showed that the administration had done very well. Earlier, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, described the evening as auspicious in the sense that it was the third year of Buhari’s administration and 19 years of democracy. “As we go into the fourth lap of this administration, good things are about to happen,” he said.

Kashim Shettima has warned Nigerians against hauling curses on the country as a result of the hardship, stating that it would be impossible for abusers to benefit from a system they have abused.

He stated that there are a lot of opportunities in Nigeria and therefore urged Nigerians to count their blessings instead of putting the country down through words.

In his words, “Let us count our blessings. Let us not put our country down.

He emphasized that, “It cannot be tales of woes all the time. As bad as things are today and with all the inflation, there are sectors that are doing incredibly well. The health sector is doing very well.

The petroleum sector is doing well. The Agric sector is doing well, for those who are planting cassava.

“People buy it there on the farm. I am not saying that things are easy. The government has come with very tough reforms.

“However, you have to position yourself in the reform. If you go out and say Nigeria is a shitty country, forgive my French, you are going to get shitty results.

The 65th Ordinary Session of the Authority is holding at the Presidential Villa in Abuja where he is expected to pass on the torch to another leader.

The Military leaders of Niger, Mali, and Burkina Faso rule out returning to ECOWAS even as President Bola Tinubu leads Heads of State of the 15-member bloc in a Summit in Abuja to persuade them to return.

“Westerners consider that we belong to them and our wealth also belongs to them. They think that they are the ones who must continue to tell us what is good for our states. This era is gone forever; our resources will remain for us and our populations,”
says Burkina Faso’s leader, Capt. Ibrahim Traoré.

“”Our people have irrevocably turned their back on ECOWAS,” Niger’s General Abdourahamane Tiani says.

“The attack on one of us will be an attack on all the other members,” insists Mali’s leader, Col. Assimi Goïta.

The trio signed a confederation treaty on Saturday, underscoring their determination to chart a joint course and exit the bloc which is urging them to return to democratic rule.
