Against the backdrop of criticisms over his actions or inactions on some burning national issues, President Muhammadu Buhari has explained why he doesn’t make decisions hurriedly.
The President at a dinner where he hosted chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja on Thursday said he is fully aware of the issues confronting the country and that he is guided by historical antecedents.
“I felt I had to invite you to let us eat together and I tell you that I am sitting here very much aware of the problem in this country. I will always reflect on historical antecedents.
“I decided to drop the uniform and come back here (to be President of Nigeria), so I have gone through it over and over again. This is why I am not in a hurry to do anything. I will sit and reflect, and continue to (operate) with my clear conscience,” he said.
He also gave the assurance that he will never forget the contributions of the APC chieftains while he was vying for the number one office appreciating them for honoring his invitation.
“I thank you very much for honoring my invitation and I am telling you that if I don’t call you, it is not because, for a moment, I ever forgot how you supported me at one stage or the other over the years.”
