President Muhammadu Buhari said Wednesday that the federal government is doing its best to correct and reverse the terrible mismanagement the country had experienced, “and with some luck, our best will be good enough.”

The president said this while receiving a delegation of non-career A mbassadors, who came to State House in Abuja to congratulate him on his re-election.

He said the was trying to live within its means, “so we can improve our lot,” adding that government was determined to upgrade the country’s profile, locally and internationally.

The president said it would be inexcusable for government not to take care of its Ambassadors in their various stations, hence the special attention being paid to the country’s foreign missions.

Speaking on behalf of the delegation, Ambassador Ashimiyu Olaniyi, said the president’s election in 2015 and his recent re-election were divine interventions in the affairs of the country.

“You are God-sent. You have always come on stage at the critical moments of our national history to right the wrongs of the past,” he said.

He said the president would be remembered “as an astute political leader who does not interfere in the political affairs of states,” stressing that the singular quality has given credibility to all elections conducted since 2015.

He said apart from records of achievements in the three focal areas of securing the country, reviving the economy and fighting corruption, the president’s integrity is responsible for his victory.

He said the ambassadors appreciate the intervention funds that were released to various missions abroad, and pledged continued loyalty and support to the Buhari administration.
