Buhari appeals to NLC to call off strike & “consider what this government inherited”



Buhari appeals to NLC to call off strike & "consider what this government inherited" | BellaNaijaPresident Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to the National Labour Congress (NLC) to call off its nationwide strike.

Punch reports that Buhari said this on Monday while receiving members of the Association of Retired Career Ambassadors of Nigeria.

Buhari asked that the organised labour union consider the state the country was in when it was “inherited” by the present administration.

President Buhari also appealed to the National Labour Congress to consider what this government inherited and the more it is doing with fewer resources in putting the economy right.

He told the retired ambassadors that the country is now getting its priorities right. He said:

There is no part of the country I haven’t been to, having attempted to be President four times.

I know the condition of our roads. The rails were literally killed, there was no power despite the admittance of some previous leadership that they spent $16 billion on the sector.

Today, we are getting our priorities right and we believe that of the three fundamental issues we campaigned on – security, the economy and fighting corruption-, we have remained very relevant and Nigerians believe we have achieved something.

    Mr. Buhari consider what you inherited and the fact that you can not cope.
    RESIGN and let other people manage this country!

    Mr. Buhari, this is the right time for you to bow out gracefully since you can’t obviously do without blaming past administrations for your inadequacy.

    If only you all gluttons can slash your salaries and allowances into half so that Nigeria can progress!

    However, you are all talk but no action and you, removing a speck of wood from other peoples eyes Mr. President, has a mighty log of Baobab tree inside your eyes!

    The legislators did not consider what was inherited when they bought exotic cars and claim its part of their emolument.

    That line is already old Mr. President
    We need to see a new Nigeria where “things” work. Start from the deadly roads, the hospitals. All we ask, value the life of an average Nigerian; feel their pulse and respond accordingly.
