Speaking from London, the chairman of the Nigerian entrepreneurs in the U.K. Mr Charles Sylvester, expressed thanks to God for answering the prayers of millions of Nigerians by healing President Buhari.
This is just as Mr Sylvester condemned some critics of the president stressing that such critics are ignorant and malicious by describing the speech as too short.
He further said; “For crying out loud, this is not a budget speech. The government is in continuum as the acting president was in charge in his absence. Delivering a long speech would have rendered the work of our capable Vice President as incompetent, which would have been disrespectful and the president is wise not to do just that.”
Sylvester also said members of the group are happy that the president has resumed duty and energetic and delivered a well-articulated speech which pointedly summarised the country’s situation, while been decisive in dealing with security threats and economic security.
According to him; “This will provide assurances to foreign investors who will be encouraged to do business in Nigeria.
“The large turnout of millions of Nigerians to welcome our president despite glaring challenges is a testament of how he is dearly loved and a phenomenon. We call on all Nigerians to continue to support the president and pray that God will grant him good health and the wisdom to lead Nigeria to attain greatness.”
