SEE The 3 Things Presidency Listed As Buhari’s Achievements In Seven Months

Published

on

PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI

The Centre for Democracy and Development had claimed recently that President Muhammadu Buhari had only achieved one out of his 222 tracked electoral promises, representing 0.5 per cent of the promises. The CDD had based its report on critical sectors such as security, the economy, fighting corruption, oil and gas, agriculture, and social and environmental sectors. However, the presidency has risen to President Buhari’s defense saying  he (Buhari) has achieved a lot in the area of fighting corruption in the seven months of his administration. INFORMATION NIGERIA has put together the 3 points put forward by the presidency to support its claim…

– Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, said in a statement on Wednesday said that the President has been able to tackle corruption in a country where impunity was once celebrated.

– The presidential spokesman said within seven months, Buhari had successfully blocked the leakages in the system.

– He added that Buhari is making good strides towards improving governance by tackling corruption. Till date, a good number of persons believed to have collectively stolen billions from taxpayers have been arrested and are facing the courts.

Speaking on the economy, he said it was wrong to blame the President for the falling oil prices in the world market because he inherrited the challenge and as part of measures to cushion the effect Buhari has laid emphasis on economic diversification. President Barack Obama of the United States had inherited an economy in crisis in 2009 and was not judged in his first seven months in office, he added.

He also noted that it was mischievous to attribute to the President promises he did not make during the campaigns and hold him accountable for them.
