A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Shehu Gabam, says President Muhammadu Buhari has good intentions for the country and urged the opposition to support him.

Gabam, Chief of staff to former Governor Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State, made the call on Saturday in Tilde-Fulani, Toro Local Government Area, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

According to him, President Buhari has a good intention for the country and there is no need for the opposition to start bombarding him.

“Well, I believe the president should be allowed to determine his own pace of speed and also determine his own cruising level.

“As an opposition party, we are monitoring with keen interest with a lot of maturity, and a lot of respects for him.

“He is the president of the country whether you voted him or not, he is the President of Nigeria.

“The institution of presidency must be respected, and I am among one of them who always appeal that everybody should respect the position of the Presidency.”

“You can differ with him on issues, operational issues, policies and programmes, and you can take him up on any other issues, we should be decent and not rascal in our approach.

“As for me, nobody should insult the president; nobody should insult the institution of the presidency.”

The PDP chieftain further appealed to the president not to run a government that is purely investigative, but run a government that will alleviate the suffering of the people.

According to him, there are too many issues this country is looking forward to for his proper attention.

“The president should, therefore, be sensitive to the needs and aspirations of the people.” (NAN)
