Speaking in an interview with Daily Independent,  Alake, who was  the Director of Strategic Communications for the APC in the recently concluded general elections said  the journey so far since May 29 when Buhari was sworn in as president  has been very purposeful and most focused in the annals of Nigeria.

Describing Buhari as a genuine, incorruptible leader who leads by example, he said there has been significant changes in all spheres of the Nigerian society because of the president‘s body language, especially his zero tolerance for corruption.

“The journey with  Buhari  in the last 100 days has been very smooth, very purposeful, most focused in the annals of Nigeria, very forward looking and progressing.  I think Nigerians are so lucky to be able to have a man of impeccable character, a man of integrity, a man who is clean and personifies credibility in office”.

“I think what Nigerians should do is to praise God for granting them this spiritual, political, physical and environmental rebirth. Nigeria is on a path of restoration and that is what I will characterize the first 100 days of Buhari  as a period of restoration for Nigeria” .

“Take Boko Haram for instance all the measures being put in place for Boko Haram. We have seen the rejuvenation of the military, the reshufflement here and there, putting officers who know their onions in positions of authority, there is no way we cannot but get positive result” .

“We have seen the Chief of Army staff going to the battlefront himself. That singular action serves to inspire the troops and I saw it on national television the troops shouting in unison, praising the army chief for that. That is inspirational leadership” .

“So, Buhari has been able to give us inspirational leadership in the first 100 days. And believe, forward ever and backward never is the watchword for this administration. So, I give kudos to Mr. President. He is on the right track   and I will urge him to be focused on the task ahead” he said.
