President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that in just three years, his administration has done more than the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) did in 16 years, The Cable reports.
According to a statement by Garba Shehu, the president made the comment at the palace of Nuhu Sanusi, Emir of Dutse, in Jigawa state, on Monday, May 14.
Legit.ng gathers that Buhari said the federal government was not discouraged from setting development targets and “achieving more in three years than the 16 years of PDP’s misrule,” despite the dwindling oil prices that started in 2016.
The president said his administration is delivering on promises with “clear-cut targets and prudent management of resources” in a way that will bring an end to theft of government resources.
He said Nigerians understand the “unpleasant realities” his administration inherited; which is why they continue to support it.
He also added that "in spite of what the opposition keeps sponsoring in the press,” there is a genuine effort to re-position the economy.

He noted that the party will not care if the candidate is a political heavyweight or a light weight, but a candidate who will deliver the goods to the masses.
