– The government of President Muhammadu Buhari have been subjected to constant criticisms
– President Buhari says the criticisms are not fair to his government, insisting that Nigeria has made progress since they came on board
– The president specifically lamented that the criticisms are majorly from the elites in the country
President Muhammadu Buhari has called on Nigerians especially the elites to be fair in their criticism of his administration by looking at the situation of the country before the assumption of the All Progressives Congress-led government.
A statement by the presidency seen by Legit.ng noted that President Buhari made the call on Thursday, January 14 when he received a delegation from the Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission.
President Buhari said:
“Those criticising the administration should be fair in terms of reflecting on where we were before we came, where we are now and what resources are available to us and what we have done with the limited resources.
“We had to struggle paying debts, investing in road repairs and rebuilding, to revamp the rail and try to get power. This is what I hope the elite when they want to criticise will use to compare notes.”
Recall that President Buhari promised to reorganise Nigeria’s security architecture in 2021 during his new year message to Nigerians on Friday, January 1.
The president, however, noted that his government needs to be more proactive and preemptive in ensuring that such incidents do not become a norm.
He said his government is fully aware of its responsibility to protect the lives and property of all Nigerians, adding that they will not relent in learning and adapting to changing threats to national security and civic wellbeing.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has urged private sectors across the 36 states of the federation and Abuja to show interest in employing Nigerians youths in their institutions.
The president made the call in Abakiliki, the capital of Ebonyi on Monday, January 11 during the official flag-off of the Extended Special Public Works Programme (ESPWP) in the state.
The president who was represented at the event by the minister of science and technology, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, explained that the initiation of the programme nationwide was his administration’s goal towards addressing the aftermath of COVID-19 pandemic.
