At Abuja yesterday, President Muhammadu Buhari said apart from his administration’s focus on economy, security, fight against corruption, his next administration would focus more on education and health.
President Buhari made this known while receiving members of the United Kingdom-based Foundation for Good Governance for Development in Nigeria. The president said he understood what Nigeria is going through and knew his responsibilities to Nigeria.
He said “I understand our problems. I am accurately aware of my duty to my God and country. I will continue to do my best.”
According to Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, the president said that a top priority of his tenure was to make sure that the efforts of hardworking Nigerian farmers were recognized.
In shehu’s statement, he said Buhari identified smuggling as a threat to agricultural production and processing and vowed to continue fighting this with all the means available to his administration.
“Earlier, the leader of the group, which is mostly made up of scholars and professionals, Dr Arabo Ibrahim Bayo, said they came together on the basis of a shared passion for the country’s development, and in the firm belief that President Buhari represents the best in terms of leadership that Nigeria can offer.
He commended the achievements of the administration in the last four years in implementing its three cardinal objectives of providing security, improving the economy and the war against corruption, and suggested the declaration of an emergency to tackle challenges in education and health sectors,” according to the statement.
