President Muhammadu Buhari said, yesterday, that the Federal Government was doing its best to correct and reverse the terrible mismanagement the country had experienced in previous administrations in the country.
President Buhari, who stated this when he received a delegation of non-career ambassadors, who were at State House, Abuja, to congratulate him on his re-election, said: “With some luck, our best will be good enough.”
He said Nigeria was trying to live within its means, adding that government was determined to upgrade the country’s profile, both locally and internationally.
The president 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. Speaking on behalf of the delegation, Ambassador Ashimiyu Olaniyi said Buhari’s election in 2015, and his recent re-election, were divine interventions in the affairs of the country.
Olaniyi in a statement by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina, said: “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 added that 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 had given credibility to all elections conducted since 2015.
