The Honourable Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has said that the past one year has been momentous for Nigeria, as President Muhammed Buhari has taken some actions, mostly bold and highly visionary, that have put Nigeria on an irreversible road to sustainable development.
While addressing the press in Abuja, to mark the First Anniversary (Second Term) of The Buhari Administration on Friday, he said never in the history of Nigeria have so many positive steps been taken in short a time as Mr. President has done in the past one year.
He added that President Buhari was elected in 2015 on the strength of his promise of change. “Nigerians are satisfied with his performance, especially in the cardinal areas of fighting corruption, tackling insecurity and revamping the economy, overwhelmingly re-elected the President in 2019. One year later, the President is taking Nigeria to the Next Level of irreversible change for the better.
“The intractable power problem is finally being tackled in a way that will end poor power supply that has stunted Nigeria’s socio-economic development. The days of unbridled massive importation of food are coming to an end, as Nigeria moves to become self-sufficient in major staples, especially rice. Thanks to the provision of many platforms and improved welfare, the Nigerian military is living up to the billing in tackling.insurgency”, he said.
According to him, “With the bold and courageous leadership provided by President Buhari, Nigeria is marching surely and steadily to join the comity of great nations. Change is never easy, and the birth of a new nation comes with pain. We thank Nigerians for their support and perseverance, an hereby reassure them of the Administration’s unrelenting commitment to making life more meaningful for the citizenry.
“As we begin the second year of the second and last tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari, I want to inform Nigerians that the stage is set for the implementation of the greatest agricultural revolution in the history of Nigeria. The unprecedented recent approval by the Buhari administration to inject $1.2b in in-kind loan into the agriculture sector through the government-to-government bilateral loan from Brazil, with support from Deutsche Bank and the Islamic Corporation for Insurance of Export Credit of the Islamic Development Bank, will revolutionize our agriculture at scale”, he said.
