President Muhammadu Buhari  has responded to critics who say his government is too slow, stating that the steady pace is pertinent to avoid disaster.

Speaking on Friday in Abuja in an audience with Women In Politics Forum (WIPF), the President said his administration is busy cleaning up the mess done by the People's Democratic Party (PDP) governments in the last 16 years.

"People say we are slow. We are trying to change structures put in place by our predecessors in office for 16 years. If we hurry it, we will make mistakes. That will be a disaster", Buhari said.
