Editors note: President Muhammadu Buhari returned to Nigeria on Saturday August 19 after spending over 100 days in London to treat an undisclosed ailment. But since his broadcast on Monday August 21, many Nigerians have expressed mixed reactions over the presidents speech.
In an article sent to NAIJ, a corps member serving in Enugu state, Moshood Muhammed, writes an open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari and lists five things the president must urgently do.
With high hope of a better Nigeria, which my colleagues and I have committed ourselves, we welcome you back to the country.
Permit me, your Excellency, to on behalf of all serving corps members convey our views on some critical issues to you via this very platform. I hope it gets to you.
There is no doubt that news of your return was delighting; it has and will in the days to come ensure political stability. Though, the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, who stood in acting capacity, did try his best to ensure the smooth running of government. This, you must have been told and it is obvious. Yes, he did try.
Now that you are back, there is a need to urgently look into serious issues demanding attention. Attending to these issues in timely manner will in no small measure douse the rising tension in the country.
