Buhari: A Lot Has Been Achieved In The Last Six Years Since My Administration
President Muhammadu Buhari while addressing the public during the 61st year independence day said his administration is the best Nigeria has been blessed with since Africa’s most populous nation returned to civilian rule in 1999.
Nigeria has been beset with myriad developmental, socio-economic and infrastructural challenges since it attained independence in 1960.
Independence Day address of October 1, 2021, Buhari said:
“I fully understand the anxiety of many Nigerians on the inability of this country to go beyond a never-ending potential for becoming a great nation to an actually great one.
“A lot has been achieved in the last six years on many fronts: in infrastructure, social care, governance, Nigeria’s image and influence in Africa and the international community.
“But critics misdiagnose incremental progress as stagnation. Since coming to power, this administration has tackled our problems head-on in spite of the meagre resources.
“No government since 1999 has done what we have done in six years to put Nigeria back on track.”
Meanwhile, insecurity and unemployment have worsened and Nigeria remains the poverty capital of the world.
