I am Still Trying To Organise Nigeria - Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari wants Nigerians to know that his administration is still trying to organising the nation.
He says the extent of mismanagement he met when he came to power was mind-boggling.
The President was addressing a group from the South-east under the aegis of One on One Nigeria on Tuesday night, when he identified the failure of the past governments to manage resources well, as the reason his administration was still in the process of organising Nigeria.
"Many times, I have spoken about the tremendous resources available to us between 1999 and 2014, and how it was frittered.
"If only they had used just 25% of it on infrastructure; road, rail, power, Nigerians would mind their own businesses, and not bother about whoever was in power.
"The casualty figure on our roads daily is simply scandalous. No wonder they are in opposition now, despite all the power they thought they had," he said, taking a swipe at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The group, led by Chido Obidiegwu, said it had keenly observed the strides of the Buhari administration nationwide, particularly in the South-east, "and it is now payback time".
"We have seen the work being done on the long-abandoned Second Niger Bridge, roads are being constructed in many parts of the region, and we believe there is every reason to support you for a second term," Obidiegwu said.
The group described President Buhari as the "grandfather of war against indiscipline and corruption, nightmare of insurgents, Mr Food Security, consolation to pensioners, and Mr Frugality," and promised him that it would mobilise South-easterners to massively vote for him, believing that one good turn would then deserve another in 2023.
