MCF: President Buhari Independence Day Speech

Wemimo Adewuni and Sheriff Quadri open the show today with the prospects of checking out President Muhammadu Buhari’s Independence day speech which was a good speech but many Nigerians were still voicing their opinions on what they think Nigeria should be. The country is celebrating its 59th anniversary of being a sovereign nation.

 

The president called for peace and unity across the country. He mentioned agriculture, and informed Nigerians how important today is. He also mentioned security, inclusive economic growth, fighting corruption, and offering good governance.

 

Gbolahan Olojede is a sole guest on the show and he has the following statement for Nigerians:

 

“We have done a lot of disservice to the country by not passing the PIB into law. In the last quarter, there was a reduction in the country's economic growth rate. There are a few licensed modular refineries in Nigeria.”  

 

Gbolahan believes that Nigeria has heard better speech in the past, that now, things have to go beyond talking. For example, about equipping the military, Gbolahan believes that the bit of justice has to be done to be able to counter terrorism. So, the question is; is Nigeria winning the war against terrorism?

 

Other matters touched are the current situation with the judiciary and Sowore. “We expect too much from the judiciary. They don’t live in a different place, they live in this world, so whatever is affecting the rest of the society is also happening to them. Secondly, he who pays the piper dictates the tune. Today, they are still under-funded and they are still controlled by the executive. In the midst of all of these, they have exercised a certain level of boldness. Dasuki was granted bail, El-Zakzaky was granted bail, in spite of the fact that they recognized that the president was sitting on the other side. Justice Taiwo Taiwo did the same thing with Sowore a few days ago. What gives him that latitude to discern whether someone is deserving of bail? The muzzling from the executive is the major issue that is militating against what could have been a vibrant judiciary.
