I Believe In Buhari, He’ll Get Nigeria Working Again, Says PDP BOT Member, Don Etiebet



Chief Don Etiebet, former Minister of Petroleum Resources and front-line politician in Akwa-Ibom in this interview with Gbenga Oke of the Vanguard stated few things the incoming Buhari Administration must do upon assuming office in May 29.

He further said he believes the Buhari administration will cut down the cost of governance and with strict adherence to the rule of law, will gradually turn the fortunes of economy around.

Etiebet is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. Excerpts.

What are your expectations from this new government?

Yes, I believe in General Muhammadu Buhari as a person who God has given to Nigeria at these trying times to save Nigeria, to get Nigeria working again and to reposition Nigeria and change her face in the comity of nations for respect and seriousness of purpose in tackling the ills of the country.

Having worked with him in the past as the National Chairman of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), I believe he will make Nigeria a different place where security, economy, discipline and the rule of law will abound to contain corruption.

I only pray that Nigerians would understand him and give him the necessary support in the face of challenges and difficulties to put his programmes through unimpeded. My expectations from his government are very much captured in his resolve to fight corruption and insecurity, and to rejuvenate the economy.

I would like to add, that one of the cardinal things he must do would be to reposition INEC in all its ramifications to conduct free, fair, credible, violent free and acceptable elections because he suffered the pangs of rigged elections thrice to become president. So he should use this opportunity to put in place the machinery for credible elections always.

Faulty elections are at the basic roots of all democratic short comings in this country.
