President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that all those who called him Baba Go Slow will be shocked at the pace he will work during his second term in office.
Buhari said this during a media chat which was aired on Nigerian Television Authority.
When President Buhari was asked if he will be more ruthless in his second term, he said:
“Those who call me ‘baba go slow’ will see whether I am slow or fast.”
Explaining further, he said:
“It means I will persuade the police and the judiciary to be hard and where I uncover that they are not hard, I will find out who is responsible for the slowness in terms of command from the DPO upwards. The IG cannot do it alone; he needs to depend on commissioners who in turn depend on DPOs.”
President Buhari will be sworn-in for a second term in office tomorrow May 29 in a low-key ceremony. However, an elaborate ceremony has been scheduled for June 12 which was last year declared by the president as the new Democracy Day in honor of late MKO Abiola.
