President Muhammadu Buhari says that his administration inherited a country in comatose from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He said PDP’s sixteen years in power gave Nigeria no power, no security, and no savings.
This is contained in a statement issued on Monday by the special assistant to the President on Media and Publicity Mallam Garba Shehu.
Buhari made the statement while speaking to journalists on Monday in Daura after attending Eid prayers to celebrate Eid El-Kabir.
Buhari also said honest Nigerians had nothing to fear in his fight against corruption.
The President thanked Nigerians for supporting the Federal Government policies, programmes and actions aimed at improving security, revamping the economy and combating the fight against corruption.
‘‘We should thank God this year, the reports I’m getting, which is very pleasing, is that we will have a bumper harvest this year.
‘‘I want Nigerians to realise that what this government inherited after 16 years of the PDP government was no savings, no infrastructure, no power, no rail, no road and no security.
‘‘Nigerians can see what we have done on Boko Haram and what we are doing to resolve the problem in the Niger Delta.
‘‘Before the elections, we identified three major problems confronting our country. The first is security; we need to sufficiently secure our country to manage it well.
‘‘The second is economy, especially job for the youths and fighting corruption which is continuous.
‘‘For the youths, graduates and non-graduates who are interested in agriculture, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture in collaboration with the CBN are doing something to provide employment for them,’’ the President said.
