Solving Nigeria’s problems: Oppositions cannot stop me says Buhari…
The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has said members of the opposition cannot fault the efforts his administration has made in its three major areas of focus, namely security, economy and the fight against corruption.
In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President spoke on Thursday in his hometown, Daura, Katsina State, while hosting some state governors elected on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress, some federal and state lawmakers and state commissioners to a lunch.
Buhari said he would continue to do what he was expected to do in the leadership position God had given him.
He said, “We are always encouraged when all our constituents are happy with the work we are doing and our genuine efforts to make sure that what we campaigned for in 2015 is still very much in our minds and we have not lost focus.
“In terms of security, economy and the fight against corruption, we have maintained focus. Even the opposition with all their resources cannot fault our identification of Nigeria’s priorities and the efforts being made to better them.
“We will continue to do what we ought to do in the leadership position God has placed us and we thank the constituents for the support.”
On the defections within the major political parties, the President reiterated his earlier position that he wished them well.
“For those who have decided to change camp for whatever reason, we wish them good luck,” he said.
President Buhari said the combined efforts of defectors and their backers in the opposition would not distract his administration from the good work it was doing for the benefit and development of Nigeria.
He further stated that the ruling party had the full understanding of Nigeria’s challenges and was encouraged by the support of Nigerians in addressing them.
