We Are Delivering On Promises - Buhari
A lot has been said about President Buhari's campaign promises and the ability of those in power to deliver the goods.
While the next election draws near, Nigerians have started to weigh the administration’s performance in line with promises made.
President Muhammadu Buhari is confident that his administration is delivering the goods with clear-cut targets, prudent management of resources and a deliberate policy to plug wastage and stealing.
President Buhari expressed this confidence at the palace of the Emir of Dutse, Nuhu Muhammadu Sanusi, in Dutse, Jigawa.
Buhari highlighted that the odds of initial dwindling oil prices did not discourage the government from setting targets for lofty developmental projects.
According to him, the growing support the administration currently enjoys can be attributed to the understanding of Nigerians of the unpleasant realities it inherited.
He also says there are efforts to re-position the economy in spite of “what the opposition keeps sponsoring in the press’’.
Before his statement, the Emir had told him that the state’s capital, Dutse, had no water and President Buhari directed the Minister of Water Resources, Sulaiman Adamu, to work with the Jigawa State Government to resolve cases of water scarcity.
The Emir then commended the Federal Government for its efforts in addressing the challenges of corruption, terrorism and drug abuse.
