Buhari

The Presidency has gone into another session of chest-beating, with a claim that President Muhammadu Buhari virtually saved Nigeria from collapse by coming into power at the time he did in five years ago.

The President, would be marking his fifth anniversary on Friday, and ahead of the cerebration, the Presidency is highlighting the benefits his coming in 2015, one of which was saving Nigeria from plunging into the abyss.

A statement issued by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Thursday presenting a 60-page compendium of achievements titled “the five years Factsheet of the Muhammadu Buhari administration,” said since inauguration May 29, 2015, the Buhari administration has made salutary impact in almost all the facets of Nigerian life.

“By May 2015, insecurity had badly fractured the fabric of the nation. No one could wager that the country would survive the next month, not to talk of another year. Bombs went off like firecrackers, insurgents ran riot round the country, other forms of crime and criminality held sway. Life was nasty, brutish and short,” the statement maintained.

It recalled that the government swept into office on the wings of change, and according to him, that change has been wrought in nearly all phases of national life.

The statement added, “Where the lofty goals are yet to be attained, it is work in progress, and eyes are firmly fixed on the ball. No distraction.

“The three umbrella areas on which government based its interventionist agenda are: security, reviving the economy (with particular emphasis on job creation, especially for youths), and fighting corruption. In these three areas, where we are today cannot be compared with where we used to be.

“Over five years, the battle has been taken to insurgents and criminals. And they are being extinguished by the day, and very close to complete extirpation.

“The economy, long dependent on a mono-product – petroleum, is being retooled, refocused, with diversification as a task that must be accomplished. Agriculture has been given a fillip, manufacturing has got a shot in the arm, and solid minerals are contributing a large chunk to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The country is very close to food security, with rice, beans, maize, millet, and all sorts of grain no longer imported. We now eat what we grow.

“On the war against corruption, no quarter is asked, and none is given. Commit the crime, do the term. No retreat, no surrender.

“Facts speak for themselves. And that is what we present at this auspicious season of the fifth anniversary of the Buhari administration. Facts are stubborn things, no matter how anybody tries to deny, distort or deride them.
