*As He Continues To Blaze The Trail
After careful, data-based and incisive research, the Buhari Media Support Group (BMSG) has affirmed that since the return of Nigeria to democratic rule in 1999, no Nigerian President has measured up to the level of achievements recorded by President Buhari in just two years his tenure.
In the past two years, the government of President Muhammadu Buhari has launched unprecedented programmes, reforms and policies and has attained landmark achievements on implementing them all.
We point out that President Buhari has towered above his predecessors, riding on the crest of integrity, commitment to the national cause and deep sense of responsibility laced with intent to leave Nigeria a better place for all.
Coming from decades of corruption, and complacency in which case, Nigeria all through, depended solely on oil resources, hence a mono economy, President Buhari administration took off by changing the narrative and laying the foundation for diversification of the Nigeria’s economy.
After inheriting a near collapsed economy at the instance of phenomenal looting of treasury by officials of past government, the government of President Buhari displayed ingenuity and wisdom, setting up an economy diversification agenda, which melted the grim recession that confronted Nigeria when it took off two years ago.
Efforts by the President to rescue the economy have since been trailed by successes. In less than two years, Nigeria is already taking its pride of place among industrialized countries; whereas, in just two years, the agricultural sector has produced over 40,000 farmers who are now in the league of millionaires, while the number keeps growing.
In just two years security in the North East has been restored, while similar unrest in other section of Nigeria, most especially the south-south and the south-east had been effectively addressed.
Under President Buhari, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) and other law enforcement agencies have been strengthened and emboldened to fight treasury looters while recovering stolen funds and fraudulently acquired properties that run into trillions of naira along with other foreign currencies. The achievements of the anti-graft agencies are unprecedented this time around.
The Nigerian military under President Buhari have given good account of themselves after yielding positively to command in ending unrest in the Niger Delta. The feat by the military has eventually set the tone for growth of national economy with resumption of oil exploration in the zone. The military also squarely addressed the agitation for secession in the south-east zone, making it possible for Nigeria to regain its rhythm as a nation with all component units now having sense of belonging.
For us in BMSG, it is apt to conclude that no Nigerian President has rivaled the standard of dedication, hard work and results that the President Buhari administration has landmarked so far. In this regard, sky is the limit for the President who means well for Nigeria.
