Emergence Of Tinubu Will Ensure Safety Of Policies Of Buhari’s Govt – Garba Shehu

Shehu Garba

“An important and overlooked aspect of the Tinubu/Shettima victory (at the February Presidential election) is that it ensures, not only an orderly transfer of power from the outgoing administration to the incoming one, but also the safety of policies and programmes of the outgoing government.
‘‘For this, we remain grateful to the Almighty, and to citizens of Nigeria for sticking with our Party.”
These remarks were made yesterday, May 5, by the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari in Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, when he played host to leaders and members of the Arewa Young Lawyers’ Forum (AYLF), the umbrella body for all young lawyers in the Northern part of Nigeria.
APC victory in the election is a watershed moment for the Buhari government, its orientation, its programmes and projects.
‘‘In the hands of the opposition, many of the laudable programmes of the Buhari administration would have been sabotaged or unimplemented.

He said that the victory of Tinubu and Kashim Shettima, has established control of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in 21 out of 36 states in the last general elections.
Garba Shehu added that the victory also established the party as a dominant national Political Party.
‘‘This is a difficult reality for the opposition parties.”
According to him, the opposition victory in the general election would not only have been a career ending moment for many APC leaders but would also have had negative consequences for the various programmes of the Buhari administration that empowered marginalised groups and remedied much of the nation’s infrastructure deficit.
In accepting his appointment as Grand Patron of the Arewa Young Lawyers’ Forum, the presidential spokesman called on members of the association to be at the vanguard of promoting the study and practice of legal profession in the northern states.
“To build and secure democracy in our communities, you need lawyers and journalists as its guardians and protectors. Without one, the other will not be successful.”
The Chairman of AYLF, Barrister Olayinka Dauda Jimoh craved the support of the Presidency in giving strategic training to young wigs to enhance their leadership roles in the society.
Other members of the Forum at the meeting were Barrister Audu Umaru, National Welfare Director (Borno State), Barrister Ahmad Khalil, National Treasurer (Yobe State) and Barr Paul Gbande, Director of Publicity (Benue State).
