THE Police Assistance Committee (PAC) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to allow himself to be distracted by sycophants, noise makers and overnight loyalists in the corridors of power.

In a statement issued on Tuesday June 2, 2015, made available to Daily Independent in Lagos, PAC Director General, Martins John-Oni, stressed that Buhari should focus his attention on good governance.

“He should be focused by following your own intuition and be his own self in taking right decisions to direct the affairs of the country,” John-Oni stated.

John-Oni, who spoke at a one-day orientation programme organised in Abuja for PAC members on how to work with the new government, stressed the need for Buhari to be wary those who would come to him with unsolicited advices that could derail his good visions.

The PAC boss advised the president not to be bordered with probes and enquiries of the immediate past administration, but should put his energy and attention on how to correct the anomalies and provide good governance, particularly in the power and oil sectors of the economy.

John-Oni lamented the near collapse of the oil and power sectors in the last two decades, while urging the new government to critically address both sectors.

He urged the new administration to introduce good policies and appoint tested technocrats with integrity as ministers to oversee the sectors for the wellbeing of Nigerians.

While urging the administration to evolve new tactics in addressing the current security challenges taking over the country, he assured Buhari of PAC’s readiness to keep offering assistance to security agencies through information dissemination and intelligence gathering.

John Oni also commended out-going President Goodluck Johathan for being an apostle of peace through his actions and utterances since the time he conceded defeat in the last presidential election and in his farewell speech during the pre-inauguration church service.
