The Primate of Anglican Church, Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, has pleaded with Nigerians to exercise patience with the incoming administration of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), saying it is “very difficult” to fix the country within four years.
Okoh said this while speaking with journalists in Abuja on Thursday.
While advising Nigerians to be patient with the incoming administration, the cleric said President-elect Buhari should be given at least a year to study the situation and set the agenda properly.
He said, “Nigerians should be patient with Buhari, otherwise, he will worsen things if Nigerians push him to the wall and rush him into action. Let us give him a year to study the situation and set the agenda properly. It is difficult to fix Nigeria within six months.
“You can’t even fix a country within four years. Buhari has to take pain in making approvals, otherwise Nigerians will cause trouble for him. So Nigerians should pray for him and be patient with him”.
