We will leave Nigeria in a far better place than we found it – Buhari


Jun 22, 2022

President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that Nigeria will be better off than it was prior to May 2015 by the time his tenure in office comes to an end in May 2023.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Buhari, while speaking on his performance on the anti-corruption war on which he rode to powder in 2015, said: “We will leave Nigeria in a far better place than we found it. Corruption is less hidden, for Nigerians feel empowered to report it without fear, while money is returned; terrorists no longer hold any territory in Nigeria, and their leaders are deceased; and vast infrastructure development sets the country on course for sustainable and equitable growth.

“In 2015, Boko Haram held territory the size of Belgium within the borders of Nigeria. Today, they are close to extinct as a result of military force. The leader of ISWAP was eliminated by Nigerian Air Force airstrike in March. The jets acquired from the U.S. and intelligence shared by the British were not provided to previous administrations and stand as testament to renewed trust re-built between Nigeria and our traditional western allies under my government.”

Speaking on power, which has nosedived to abysmally low level as at today, Buhari noted: “There are hundreds of ongoing projects and initiatives attracting funding from investors. Take my Presidential Power Initiative (PPI), a government-to-government initiative between the governments of Nigeria and Germany, with Siemens AG to upgrade the electricity grid with a $2 billion investment.”

He said the amended Constitution, when signed into law, would allow state governments to generate and transmit electricity while increasing investors’ participation in the sector. He mentioned the renewable energy project as one of the efforts towards increasing power efficiency.
