Chairman of Air Peace Airline, Chief Allen Onyema has rated President Muhammadu Buhari high after evaluating his one month in office.

“One month of President Buhari, I will say is highly successful,” Onyema told Vanguard in an interview.

“The president should not be stampeded into taking hasty actions that we may regret at the end. He needs time to plan. He met things that are not so pleasant on his table. He has to take time to undo some of those wrongs.

“In one month, you don’t expect anybody to perform miracles.”

Highlighting the criteria he used in scoring the president high, Onyema said Buhari’s non-interference in the National Assembly election was commendable, especially for someone  who everybody did not know to have democratic credentials.

“Again, one thing you must give to Buhari is his aura. The aura of an incorruptible mantra is already affecting the entire country and people are scared to do the wrong things. With that alone, I score him 100 percent,” the Air Peace boss said.

Although insurgent attacks have increased since President Buhari was sworn in, Onyema says the president has made remarkable changes.

“He just took over one month ago. He needs to study the security reports that the past government collected in the last four years. You cannot really judge him now, he has to plan. It is when he hits the road running that you can actually judge him. You cannot really expect him to throw the Nigeria military into the fray like that. He has done the first thing by visiting leaders of the neighbouring countries to solicit their support.

“Being a former military leader, I am sure he wants to move against Boko Haram in a very bad way. So he would not want a situation where when he moves against them they would find succour in the neighbouring countries.

“I believe he will deal with the issue but they should not forget those affected by the insurgency because if you are attacking insurgency and not doing anything about those who suffer collateral damage as a result of the insurgency you will be creating more Boko Haram at the end of the day,” Onyema said.

  • I WISH TO STATE FACTS HERE VERY CLEAR THAT NIGERIANS MUST BE BROTHERS KEEPER IN TIMES LIKE THIS AND STOP MAKING UNGUIDED STATEMENTS ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THE COUNTRY. Nigeria WILL FOR EVER REMAIN AS ONE COUNTRY MATTER WHATEVER EVIL PLOTS BY GROUPS AND POLITICIANS I WILL URGE THEM TO SORT OUT THEIR DIFFERNCES THROUGH DIALOGUE INSTEAD OF ENGAGING IN ACTIVITIES THAT WILL PUT MANY LIVES IN DANGER. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT IN NIGERIA PLEASE RELOCATE TO OTHER PART OF THE GLOBE AND LET NIGERIA AND INDEED NIGERIANS BE IN PEACE. I AM FROM THE SOUTH, AND I WISH TO STATE HERE THAT NIGERIA WILL BE GREAT AND BENEFIT MORE STANDING TOGETHER. THE BOKO HARAM ISSUE WILL BE SORTED WITH THE RIGHT LEADERSHIP. I WILL REALLY WANT THE GOVERNMENT TO NEGOTIATE, BUT IF IT FAILS THEN THE GOVERNMENT NEED TO DECLAR ALL TOTAL WAR.
