President Muhammadu Buhari assured Tuesday that the present administration would build on the successes it has so far recorded in order to make the country great and better.
Speaking when he received members of the Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the president said he would focus on three agenda of enhancing security, revamping the economy and fighting corruption.
“I assure you that I am resolute on fulfilling these promises and will leave Nigeria a far better place than when we came. It is not an easy job to sell the administration’s services, we are doing unpopular things and facing powerful individuals and taking on invested interest who are accustomed to the corrupt era. But we must do things the right way; if we promised change then we must deliver it.
“This is regardless of whose interest is touched. There must be a manifest departure from the old order. We are making significant progress and these are evident for all to see. Despite attempts by enemies to twist and bend facts, but most Nigerians know the truth.
“We would continue to intensify our efforts and ensure that our promises to Nigerians are kept and fulfilled. One message that is dear to me, which I urged you to propagate is that I am determined to end security challenges we are facing in the country and make Nigeria a peaceful and a prosperous country.
“I campaign on three simple premises not different from those of 2015; to tackle insecurity, promote economic diversification and to fight corruption. Fulfilling these three promises are fundamental to taking Nigeria to the next level,” he said.
In his remarks, chairman of BMO, Mr Niyi Akinsiju, said the organisation regularly commissions the writing and publishing of newspaper opinion articles and press statements to amplify government policies and programmes.
He said the Buhari administration has achieved a lot since it came on board on May 29, 2019.
“Despite twisted narratives about clashes between farmers and pastoralists, your administration has shown the most commitment towards ending these decades-long conflicts; it has produced several strategies and plans aimed at providing a sustainable resolution.
“We are conscious of the need to push your achievements beyond elitists boundary to the millions of silent and media underserved Nigerians at the base of the pyramid. We are resolute that this must be done,” he said.
