Fahm, the Commissioner of Science and Technology, Lagos State.
Speaking after the dinner, the former Lagos state governor described the opposition Peoples Democratic Party’s statements after the election as ‘saucy and distractive” and suggested that the PDP may be suffering from election defeat trauma.
He urged Nigerians not to be annoyed with them but help them to overcome the trauma.
“Don’t blame them. They are handicapped by the traumatic feelings of the colossal loss of the election. You should help them to manage the trauma,” he said.
He urged all citizens should consider the enormity of challenges facing the nation, and support the President as he grapples with the challenges of stabilizing the polity.
“The President worked hard and will continue to do so to ensure peace and stability in the country, which are important for the economy to make progress. These are the key pegs of his agenda. Let us all come together to support him,” he said.
