The presidency has explained why President Muhammadu Buhari's current agenda is different from his campaign promises made before the 2015 general elections.
According to Premium Times, a presidential media aide, Garba Shehu, explained that after the president returned to power in 2019, there was a need for dynamism based on the state of the nation's treasure and the capacity of the supporting infrastructure.
Shehu explained that since governance in its true nature is dynamic"no government elected for two terms could possibly justify continuing only to deliver the agenda it set in the first election campaign that brought it to office some five years previously.”
He made it clear that pressing issues informed the need for the Buhari-led government to renew its visions and legacies until the second term is over.
As an example, Shehu mentioned the current investigation into the activities of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) substantiates the presidency's intention to defeat corruption in the country.
The president's spokesman also talked about the fight against insecurity, especially the issue of insurgency in the northern region as well as decisive efforts to revive the nation's economy which has faced a serious set back due to the coronavirus pandemic as proof that the government is up to date on what Nigeria needs at the moment.
