President Buhari today disclosed that his administration would not disappoint Nigerians. The President made the vow during an All Progressives Congress(APC) rally in Dutse as part of activities of his two day working visit to Jigawa.
President Buhari told the party members that his government is aware of the hardship faced by many Nigerians as a result of the economic crunch and hike in prices of essential commodities but that he is doing everything possible to ameliorate their hardship.
He informed the party members that the Federal Government has stopped the importation of rice to encourage the local encourage local production and empower farmers.
Recall that few days ago President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said the odds of initial dwindling oil prices did not discourage his administration from setting targets for lofty developmental projects and achieving more in three years than the 16 years of Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) misrule.
The president, according to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity Malam Garba Shehu, said this at the palace of the Emir of Dutse, Alhaji Nuhu Muhammadu Sanusi, during his two-day visit to Jigawa State.
Buhari said his administration was delivering on promises with clear-cut targets, prudent management of resources and a deliberate policy to plug wastage and pilfering of government resources.
He said the growing support his administration currently enjoys can be attributed to the understanding of Nigerians of the unpleasant realities it inherited, and the efforts to reposition the economy in spite of “what the opposition keeps sponsoring in the press’’.
