President Muhammadu Buhari has finally broken silence on the widespread hunger ravaging the country.
Reacting to criticisms from Nigerians that the hunger is caused by the failed policies of his administration, Buhari said that conclusion would be wrong and insisted with all the emphasis at his command that the former ruling party should be held responsible because the PDP, according to him, left nothing for his administration.
His words: ”Nigerians should realise that this government inherited nothing from PDP government.
”After 16 years of PDP regime, there was no power supply, no much infrastructure, no rail, and no security; this is what it left for us,” Buhari noted.
He however, assured Nigeria that his administration is working round the clock in tackling three key issues, such as security, economy, and the fight against corruption, with the aim of moving the country forward
Buhari added, that his administration is also making frank efforts to create jobs for graduates and other unemployed youths.
He said, ”We have plans for the country; we must first secure the country, for security is the key to development.
”We first dealt with the Boko-Haram, and now we are dealing with the militants.
”Through the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, and an inter-ministerial committee under the Vice-President, we are working out jobs for graduates and other youths.
”We are equally tackling corruption, which will be a continuous thing.
”So, we are trying our best, and we want Nigerians to do their best too.”
