Former Lagos State Police Commissioner, Abubakar Tsav has said that Nigeria needs a leader like President Muhammadu Buhari.
Tsav also said that those who are complaining about the situation in the country are its enemies.
“Those complaining now are enemies of Nigeria. In a situation like this, before we get things right, there must be pangs of inconvenience and thereafter there is light at the end of tunnel. That is why I am appealing for patience, because everything will soon be right,” he told The Tribune.
“The way out is to continue to honour those who served this nation so as to boost the morale of Nigerians and encourage dignity of labour. But not to heap praises on those looters who have destroyed the country.
“Also, let the present administration strengthen the anti-corruption agencies to deal with all those corrupt leaders.
“Let me emphasise that President Muhammadu Buhari is doing the best thing in this direction and I appeal to Nigerians to be patient with him because the rot had been too much and to fix it will take a long time. But I think we are in a better hand to get out of the mess, which the past administration has thrown us into,” he added.
Tsav had earlier also defended Buhari against insinuations that he was behind the arrest of former minister of petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke.
Alison-Madueke was arrested in the United Kingdom in October 2015 on suspicion of corruption.
She was later released but is still under investigation for money laundering and is believed to have personally supervised the stealing of $6 billion from Nigeria’s coffers.
