The President’s Inaugural Speech : Femi Fani Kayode and Anenih React



If you are very active on social media, you would have noticed that president Buhari’s speech caused quite a frenzy online yesterday. See a summary below:

“I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody.A few people haveprivately voiced fears that on coming back to office I shall go after them. These fears are groundless. There will be no paying off oldscores. The past is prologue”

One of them was Former Minister and PDP presidential campaign chairman, Fani-Kayode who said: 

‘’I believe his part of non vendetta will be true, all Nigerians should join hands to see Nigeria move forward. “I believe it was a promising speech and sincerely hope that he is true to what he has said especially on the issue that he will not be on a vendetta mission. I hope he is saying the right thing; hope his words will be proved to be truth. “It is incumbent upon all of us as politicians to ensure that the next four years go on smoothly. I trust that all will be well and the country will move forward.”

According to the statement issued by the governor’s Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, The Governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose, said:

 “The content of the President’s speech showed a man who is desirous of making a success of his administration.Nigerians, including those who voted and did not vote for President Buhari were eagerly waiting for his inaugural speech.

The speech, if followed in practice, shows that he is ready to govern Nigeria and 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,”

In regards to former President Jonathan, he said:

“With what Dr. Goodluck Jonathan did, history will never forget him as the man who laid an enduring foundation for democracy in Nigeria.”

Another reaction was from the Pioneer National Woman leader of the PDP and former Minister of Women Affairs and delegate to the 2014 National Conference Iyom Josephine Anenih.

She said: “I like President Muhamadu Buhari’s speech. He was very kind to former President Jonathan by acknowledging the role he played in keeping Nigeria one and united.

His avowed blueprint when implemented will definitely spell a positive Change for this country. His speech  was very states manly. Very reassuring to the nation.
