President Muhammadu Buhari recently met with the Nigerian community in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, and reiterated his vow to keep up with his anti-corruption battle and war against terrorism till 2022.
He also noted that the nation’s economy would witness better results before he quits his position as President.
In a statement by Mr Femi Adesina, Buhari revealed to the audience that his Next Level agenda is focused on highlighting the results recorded from 2015 till now and to better it before 2023.
He said, “We all know how many local governments Boko Haram were occupying. People from the North-East know that they are not holding any local government area today. They were holding 17 out of the 774 local government areas before we came in 2015; they are not holding any now.”
“What we did was to encourage agriculture and fertiliser was made available at half the price.
“We encouraged people to go back to land. The response was excellent. We have virtually achieved food security; we have stopped the importation of rice.
“The money we have saved in foreign exchange is in hundreds of millions of dollars, not even in naira. We are putting that into infrastructure.”
“Whoever calls me Baba-go-slow; I’m very conscious of historical antecedents. You know what happened to me the last time… people [now] have to be proven guilty before they are locked up.’’
