President Muhammadu Buhari has said he would surprise people who have labelled him as “Baba Go Slow” during his second term.
President Buhari made this declaration during a special interview aired on the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) on Monday.
According to the president, who would be sworn-in for a second term on Wednesday, Nigerians would discover the nature of his responses to issues in the country.
He said: “Those who call me ‘baba go slow’ will see whether I am slow or fast.”
When pressed further, President Buhari explained that he would make public officers in the country, especially those in the police and judiciary, more accountable.
He said the top hierarchy of law enforcement agencies cannot do their work alone, noting that they require the cooperation of their subordinates.
President Buhari said: “It means I will persuade the police and the judiciary to be hard and where I uncover that they are not hard, I will find out who is responsible for the slowness in terms of command from the DPO upwards.
“The IG cannot do it alone; he needs to depend on commissioners who in turn depend on DPOs
