- Professor Itse Sagay says successive governments will struggle to meet the permanent record President Muhammadu Buhari will be leaving behind
- According to Sagay, Nigerians will soon realise that Buhari has been a great blessing to this nation
- On the forthcoming elections, Sagay said Buhari has performed creditably well and deserves a second term
The chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Professor Itse Sagay (SAN), has said President Muhammadu Buhari will leave a permanent record in the presidency which successive governments will struggle to meet.
Sagay made the assertion in an interview published by Independent on Thursday, December 27, in which he said Nigeria would soon realise that President Buhari has been a great blessing to the nation.
Legit.ng notes that Sagay said: "I expect things to get better in 2019. The economy will get better and the situation of things will greatly improve. Nigerians will begin to see that the coming of Buhari has been a great blessing for this country.
"They will also see that some of the foundations he is laying down now for accountability, transparency, honesty and integrity and applying the resources of the state judiciously for infrastructure and other things of development will become permanent.
"No government in future will be able to fritter away the resources and leaving the masses suffering as it was done in the past before the coming of Buhari. So, I strongly believe that he is going to leave a permanent record which successive governments have to struggle to meet."
On the 2019 general elections, the legal luminary said President Buhari would coast home to victory by a landslide.
Fielding question on whether the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, would not be a threat to President Buhari in 2019 in view of the belief that northern votes would be divided between the duo, Sagay said: "Atiku can’t divide his votes in the North and he will not get anything significant in the Northern region.
"Everybody especially in the North trust Buhari. They have confidence in him because of his records and integrity. They are sure that whenever he makes promises, you can hold him to his words. You cannot say that of Atiku. Nobody will want to leave what is good, what they have experienced and now take a risk for something that is uncertain.
"So, I believe President Buhari has performed creditably well to deserve a second term and Nigerians who are appreciative of what he has done in the last three and half years will ask him to continue for another four years."

Legit.ng previously reported that the minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said President Buhari would win the forthcoming presidential election with a wide margin than he did in 2015.
Mohammed, who said this on Thursday, December 20, said his principal would coast home to victory because of higher verifiable achievements he had recorded since coming to power in 2015.
The minister said there was no real contender against Buhari for the number one political position, saying the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was only interested in whipping up sentiments.
