I believe in devolution of power, says Buhari
The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Friday, said he believes in devolving power to the people.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on Friday.According to Adesina, Buhari said this when he received members of the Nigerian Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) led by Co-Chairmen, Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar and President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), His Eminence, Rev. Dr. Samson Supo Ayokunle, at the State House in Abuja.
At the meeting, the President said, “On the contentious issue of restructuring or true federalism or devolution of powers, like you all know, this is a constitutional matter with which only the National Assembly can deal.“I remain an unapologetic believer in devolving power to the people and that is why I signed the Executive Order granting autonomy to State Legislature and Judiciary. Unfortunately, this was met with some resistance at the state level and led to a more than two months strike action that has cost the country a lot of pain.
“Luckily the National Assembly has nearly completed the constitutional review process, which I hope would address some of the burning issues agitating the minds of our people.’’Adesina, in the statement, said, “President Buhari assured that efforts were already on to create a more conducive environment to address both direct and indirect causes of challenges including areas of job creation and employment generation while appreciating religious leaders for their significant roles in national development, particularly in shaping perspectives.” headtopics.com
He quoted Buhari as saying, “Your role is critical in putting the correct perspective out to Nigerians.’’ Read more: The Punch Newspapers »

He should take a rest. We can not continue to dwell on the recycling of the old political class that have ruined this country directly or indirectly b4 now.
