Dr Kayode Ajulo, a Constitutional Lawyer and former National Secretary of Labour Party has lauded President Muhammadu Buhari over his infrastructural drive, saying he has done a lot in the area of transportation and other critical sectors of the economy.

Ajulo commended the President in his reaction to the President’s speech on the occasion of the commemoration and celebration of Democracy Day on Saturday in Abuja.

According to him, let us be sincere when it comes to infrastructural development, Buhari has done a lot and such kind of laudable achievements should not be wished away.

He however called on the President to redouble his effort in the area of electricity, while urging him to look into electricity sector as little or nothing had been achieved in that area.

On security, Ajulo said that more premium should be placed on security to curtail the present security challenges, stressing that the President should give more attention to community policing.

He said that a clear cut policy on community policing should be looked into, adding that such policy should be able to bring lasting solution to the issue of insecurity in the country.

The lawyer aligned with the President stance on constitutional amendment that only the National Assembly could amend the constitution.

According to him, the President just said it as it is, only NASS can alter the constitution, the President has no such power but only NASS can amend the constitution.

He however said that the President could use his power as the President, Chief Executive Officer of the Federation, the only office whose constituency idms the entire Country and the leader of his party, the All Progressives Congress(APC) to lobby the lawmaker whose party are in the majority.

“Buhari has a role to play as the leader of his party with majority in both chambers of NASS, anybody can lobby but the President can do more with the enormous power he posses to change the constitution,” he said.

On the claim of Employment for millions of Nigeria youths, Ajulo said from his experience much need to be done to tackle the state of unemployment, he said the statistic being peddled is not cast on stone as from his experience the youths that depend on him has increased with triple figures within the last 5 years and there’s urgent need by the government to arrest the dire unemployment situation on the country, he further stated that unemployment is a dangerous fuel for the insecurity flame.
