Buhari’s stewardship in five years

President Muhammadu Buhari

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari on May 29, 2020, marked the end of the fifth year of his government in office. It is therefore end of the first year in the second four-year term of the Muhammadu Buhari administration following his win at the general poll in 2019 which the Supreme Court of Nigeria has affirmed.

The Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), Femi Adesina, while presenting the record on Friday to mark President Buhari’s 5th anniversary as Nigeria’s President rated the administration high and focused with great impacts in all facets of the country.

The statement reads in part;

“Between May 29, 2015, when it was inaugurated for the first term, and now, the Buhari administration has made salutary impact in almost all the facets of Nigerian life.

“The government swept into office on the wings of Change, and that change has been wrought in nearly all phases of national life. Where the lofty goals are yet to be attained, it is work in progress, and eyes are firmly fixed on the ball. No distraction.

“The three umbrella areas on which government based its interventionist agenda are: security, reviving the economy (with particular emphasis on job creation, especially for youths), and fighting corruption. In these three areas, where we are today cannot be compared with where we used to be.

“Over five years, the battle has been taken to insurgents and criminals. And they are being extinguished by the day, and very close to complete extirpation.

“The economy, long dependent on a mono product – petroleum, is being retooled, refocused, with diversification as a task that must be accomplished. Agriculture has been given a fillip, manufacturing has got a shot in the arm, and solid minerals are contributing a large chunk to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The country is very close to food security, with rice, beans, maize, millet, and all sorts of grain no longer imported. We now eat what we grow.

“On the war against corruption, no quarter is asked, and none is given. Commit the crime, do the term. No retreat, no surrender”, the presidency stated. Post Views: 14
