MRDD presidential candidate tasks Buhari on inclusive gov’t

The Movement for the Restoration and Defence of Democracy (MRDD) national chairman, Danjuma Mohammad, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to be magnanimous in victory by forming an all inclusive government.

Mohammad, who argued that Buhari has done well in his first term in office, said it was necessary for the president to reconcile the nation after a keenly contested presidential election that polarized the country.

Speaking in Abuja Monday, the party chieftain, who lamented the high level of division along ethnic and religious line’s in the country, said it was time for the president to unite the country through his appointment and even distribution of projects.

“Buhari should do more in view of his distribution of the dividends of democracy to all parts of the country.  He has done well and that is why I stepped down for him. I expect him to reconcile the nation, some unscrupulous politicians have polarised the nation, he should ensure that his appointment should be balanced”.

While commending PMB for the giant strides recorded in his first tenure in agriculture and infrastructure development, he also urged him not to relent in his fight against corruption.

“The president did very well in the election. He should do more in the area of anti- corruption, infrastructure and agriculture”

On the leadership of the 9th National Assembly, he advised the ruling party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) to consider other zones that are not represented in at the national level for equity and balancing.

“For me, let each zone have representation at the national level, no geo-political zone should be isolated.”
