Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has described the inaugural speech of President Muhammadu Buhari as a sign that the former head of state was ready to serve all Nigerians regardless of their political affiliation.
“Nigerians, including those who voted and did not vote for President Buhari were eagerly waiting for his inaugural speech,” a statement issued by the governor’s Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka said.
“The speech, if followed in practice shows that he is ready to govern Nigeria. It is a sign that the president is ready to live above board and lead a government that accommodates all.
“It is my prayer that the Almighty Allah will grant our president the courage and wherewithal to make a success of his administration and further deepen democratic governance, especially in a confederation like Nigeria by sustaining rule of law,” Fayose said.
The governor also praised the immediate past president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan for laying the foundation for democracy in Nigeria.
“With what Dr Goodluck Jonathan did, history will never forget him as the man who laid an enduring foundation for democracy in Nigeria,” Fayose said.
