FG working to reverse mismanagement of economy, says Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the Federal Government is doing its best to correct and reverse the mismanagement the country had experienced.He said: “With some luck, our best will be good enough.”
Buhari spoke while receiving a delegation of non-career ambassadors who paid a courtesy visit to the State House, Abuja, to congratulate him on his re-election.He said Nigeria was trying to live within her means “so that we can improve our lot,” adding that the government is determined to upgrade the country’s profile, both locally and internationally.
The President, in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, yesterday, said it would be inexcusable for government not to take care of its ambassadors in their various stations, hence the special attention being paid to the country’s foreign missions.
Ambassador Ashimiyu Olaniyi, who spoke on behalf of the delegation, said Buhari’s election in 2015 and his recent re-election, in 2019 were divine interventions in the affairs of the country.“You are God-sent. You have always come on stage at the critical moments of our national history to right the wrongs of the past.”
He said the President would be remembered “as an astute political leader who does not interfere in the political affairs of states,” noting that the singular quality has given credibility to all elections conducted since 2015.The delegation submitted that apart from records of achievements in the three focal areas of securing the country, reviving the economy and fighting corruption, “your integrity is responsible for your victory, which we are privileged to celebrate with you today.”
The Ambassadors appreciated the intervention funds released to various missions abroad, and pledged continued loyalty and support to the Buhari administration.
