The chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) John Oyegun has said that President Buhari’s speech on Monday, August 21, 2017, was on point.

According to Daily Post, the APC chief also said that the speech addressed core issues plaguing the country.

He said “Any leader must be able to set priorities. He set a very clear and unambiguous priority. The others, he will deal with in the course of time.

“You see, he is the President of this nation. He has been away for quite a bit of time. Agents of destabilisation have been very much at work because they thought his absence created a gap and a weakness within the polity which they tried to exploit.

“So, Mr. President, in his wisdom, discerned that the stability, unity, peace and security of this nation and the ordinary Nigerian are the key issues at this material time. He addressed them and went straight to the core of the issues.

“He left nobody in any doubt that any Nigerian is entitled as a matter of right to live, work and operate in any part of this country.

“He made it clear and left no one in any doubt that yes, while people can discuss issues and the relationship in the nation, the National Assembly is there to handle such issues.

“But he drew one red line that the only thing that is not on the table is that this nation can be divided. He made it clear that the unity of the Nigerian nation is not up for negotiation of any type.”

Meanwhile, Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state has called on President Buhari to deliver the gains of democracy to Nigerians.
