“Even though the President will stand down after the election of a successor next year – whether that successor lives up to the exacting standards and example he has set or not – his legacy is strong and will be peculiarly tough to dismantle."
The Sun reports that Shehu added one of President Buhari's greatest achievements is breaking the belief presidents assume office in Nigeria to enrich themselves.
“That wicked spell is broken for good. And it has offended politicians everywhere. They thought the state owed to them while the people provided for the state.
Instead, they have witnessed how, when the state owes to them nothing, it provides for the people.”
