President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his anti-corruption war is not selective in yet another message to Nigerians on Sallah day.
The president’s senior special assistant on media and publicity, in a statement he released on Monday, September 12, quoted the president as telling media men in Daura after Sallah prayers that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) made a mess of the country in its 16 years in power.
He however assured Nigerians that is government is tackling every challenge one at a time. Having solved the country’s security issues, he says what is on the agenda now is fixing the economy.
‘‘We should thank God this year, the reports I’m getting, which is very pleasing, is that we will have a bumper harvest this year.
‘‘I want Nigerians to realise that what this government inherited after 16 years of the PDP government was no savings, no infrastructure, no power, no rail, no road and no security.
‘‘Nigerians can see what we have done on Boko Haram and what we are doing to resolve the problem in the Niger Delta.
‘‘Before the elections, we identified three major problems confronting our country. The first is security; we need to sufficiently secure our country to manage it well.
‘‘The second is economy, especially job for the youths and fighting corruption which is continuous.
‘‘For the youths, graduates and non-graduates who are interested in agriculture, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture in collaboration with the CBN are doing something to provide employment for them,’’ Buhari said.
