A Lagos lawmaker, Mr Setonji David, on Sunday said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s policy direction in power, oil and gas sectors was commendable since he came to power in May.
David, (APC-Badagry II), gave the commendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
He said that the president should be commended for restructuring the power and oil sectors, noting that the refineries were functioning and that there had been improvement in electricity.
The lawmaker said the change recorded in those areas and other areas had provided employment for many Nigerians.
“See what is happening today with electricity, the power supply is improving without the government doing anything because they know Buhari will not take nonsense from anybody.
“Everybody is sitting up in all the arms of government. It is no more business as usual, and everybody will ensure that the country moves forward.
“ If we continue this way, you will see positive development in the country,” David said.
The lawmaker, however, expressed optimism that once the problems of power and oil sector were solved, more than half of the problems in the country would have been solved.
David also commended the Federal Government on its plan to employ 10,000 police officers and to tackle corruption, noting that such steps were signs of good things to come.
He also lauded Buhari on the move to probe some corrupt officials as well as the appointment of people of quality and integrity into offices.
He, therefore, urged the president to re-double his efforts at providing mass employment for the teeming youths to improve on their well-being.
David similarly urged the Lagos State Government to look into the direction of Badagry in the area of infrastructures, lamenting that the number of schools in Badagry was small compared to its population.
“Some students have to go very far before they get to their schools, our road system is about the worst in the state.
“Apart from the expressway, we have other hinterland roads. So, we need good roads and we need more schools.
“ Also, the state government should direct attention toward tourism development in Badagry, which is the mainstay of the area,” he said. (NAN)
