Based on my rating I’m giving him 65 percent for development is stages having put in place quality measures which are going to manifest in the next 10 years and Nigeria obviously would be a better place,” he assured.
“You can’t compare Buhari with other Presidential Candidates looking at their backgrounds they are not on same pedestal.
“What have seen that he’s doing in fact an average southeasterner knows that they have gotten a lot of good things in terms of Infrastructures in their region. In southwest I have seen lots of infrastructural development in the area of good roads construction; same way in terms of local commerce.
