A group, New Nigeria Collective (NNC), has commended President Muhammadu Buhari over what it described as his government's proactive response towards the fight against COVID-19.
The group also commended the president for his recent policies which include fuel price reduction and financial autonomy granted state houses of assemblies and the judiciary
The commendation was contained in a communique issued by the NNC after a meeting of its national executive council.
The NNC noted the weight of the challenges that are currently besetting governments at all levels in the country and concluded that while there is room for improvement, “it has not been a poor journey after all, especially, if the situations in other climes are factored into account side-by-side with the current global health challenge, the COVID-19 pandemic.”
While appreciating the dedication, commitment and honesty of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha, who is the chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, it noted that Mustapha has led the team well.
Similarly, it applauded the Buhari's administration for the recent reductions in the pump prices of petroleum products for three times consecutively, following the slump in the global price of crude oil, stressing that the decision saved the Nigerian economy from plunging into critical recession.
It further commended the recent financial autonomy granted local government administrations in the country, and also to the state houses of assemblies and the judiciary, saying the decision liberated them from the claws and undue interference of central governments.
Meanwhile, the federal government through the newly resuscitated National Agricultural Land Development Authority (NALDA) has revealed its plan to raise about 77, 400 young farmers across the nation in different farming activities ranging from crop farming to animal husbandry.
The newly appointed executive secretary of NALDA, Prince Paul Ikonne, revealed this on Monday, June 1 in Abuja at the maiden press briefing of the agency.
