President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that his administration is still focused on delivering on the change mandate.
The Nigerian president made the statement on Friday, May 29, on the first year anniversary of his second term in office.
Buhari in a statement through his media aide, Femi Adesina, stated that he and his team are making efforts to deliver the change that Nigerians have demanded.
He pointed out that some of the achievements of his administration include an increase in foreign investment; construction of new roads, bridges and rails, and putting structures in place to improve employment.
The president noted that he is aware of the burden many Nigerians face just to make ends meet, and the suffering they endure.
He assured Nigerians that all their challenges shall soon pass.
Buhari said his administration is also making efforts to contain the COVID-19 virus.
Meanwhile, Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant, media and publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday, May 29, said that his principal trusts women more than men in Nigeria.
Speaking on Friday in a morning show on NTA, Shehu said that this claim is proven by the fact that President Buhari has always appointed women as ministers of finance.
The presidential spokesman said: “In any case, do you know that all his ministers of finance have been women.
In another news report, the Centre for Social Justice, Equity and Transparency (CESJET) has commended President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian military troops for their efforts towards ending the war against insurgency in the last five years.
CESJET made this known in its five-year assessment report on President Buhari’s administration in the war against terrorism and the accompanying efforts of the Nigerian army.
The centre said President Buhari has earned plaudits from Nigerians and the international community for dramatically halting the once growing spate of Boko Haram/ISWAP attacks in the country.
After carrying out an assessment tour of the northeast, spanning five years, CESJET acknowledged that President Buhari has displayed sincerity of heart and purpose towards bringing the war to an end.
Meanwhile, the special adviser on media and publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina, says he believes his boss is doing well.
Adesina made the comment via a tweet on Tuesday, May 26 in reaction to an alleged news story making the rounds quoting him wrongly.
“In fact, we are lucky to have him at a time like this. All attempts to demonize me will fail,” part of his statement read.
