100 days into the second term of President Muhammadu Buhari,
spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kassim Afegbua,
has scored the administration low.
Afegbua who appeared on Channels Television programme, “Sunday
Politics” last night said the Buhari administration keeps running
around in circles and lack movement, adding that he does not see any
hope for the future.
According to him “nothing has happened in the last 100 days” and the

till date, no Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting has been held.
He also took a swipe at the Katsina State government who he accused of

“In 100 days, nothing has changed in terms of the security

like. The President preparing to go to South Africa is good, but we

programmes, motions, no movement yet in terms of what is going to
happen,” he said.
Meanwhile, Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi
Adesina, responding on the programme, has asked Nigerians to expect
good things under the administration’s second term.
He said the concept of 100 days in office, ordinarily does not apply
to returning governments and therefore, assured Nigerians that
progress is being made in the key areas of security, economic
development and the anti-graft war.
