Buhari is Navigating the Nigerian State From Bermuda Triangle – Patrick Obahiagbon


In this interview, Edo State Chief of Staff, Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon assesses the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In an exclusive interview with Vanguard, the Chief of Staff to Edo State Governor, Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon, has assessed the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari. He also spoke on some issues affecting Edo State, asserting that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)  stands no chance in the guber election scheduled to be held in the state in  2016.
You ran in the senatorial primary of the APC for Edo South ahead of the 2015 polls but  lost. How were you able to move on?
Moving on was nothing of a quagmire at all and that is because as a student of mysticism and hermeticism, I hold the view very tenaciously that “as above so below”, meaning that nothing happens in the life of a student of light by accident. I gave it all my best and vicariously yearned again for another parliamentary lacuna to use parliament as a pizza for social engineering and legislative dialectics, but when it did not happen, it just meant that the cosmic keyboard was vibrating at its own rhythm and harmonics according to the law of the cycles which is itself an immutable divine law.

Some Nigerians believe that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has been sluggish. Do you share that sentiment?

President Buhari has left no one in doubt-except of course incorrigible political Philistines and revanchists that he has set his hands on the plough and no political Jupiter can stop him now from cleansing the Augean stable and navigating the ship of the Nigerian state from Bermuda Triangle.
He has demonstrated a diaphanous commitment to pulverize the monster of corruption by not just vacuous sloganeering as it was in the past, but has announced a willingness to begin an epic prosecution of economic vandals. The constitution of a Presidential Advisory Committee against corruption, headed by the fiery and no nonsense Professor Itse Sagay, is a further demonstration of his commitment.
I simply don’t understand what they mean by sluggishness. Mr President met a country in a state of economic phlebotomy, social anomie, moral putrescence and political erebusism. Was he supposed to have, against this background, begin to take precipitate steps bordering on the harum scarum just to satiate the dramatic proclivities of those who lightly cogitate that Nigeria is a political cinematography? No no no.
Fixing the Nigerian economy just now requires systematic methodology,a sangfroid disposition and a calculative mind as cool as cucumber. His shuttle diplomacy to rally Nigeria’s neighbours and the international community at regional and global levels are already paying off in the war against Boko Haram. His spartan discipline and respect for the rule of law, especially on fiscal matters, are already yielding positive mileage for the economy.
Nigerians are used to theatrics and histrionics but President Buhari is not a man of theatre and drama. He is a man of few words but much action.
