President Muhammadu Buhari has said he inherited absolutely nothing from the previous government of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
He also said that other administrations of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP led by former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and late Umar Musa Yar’Adua left nothing to build on.
Buhari spoke to journalists Monday in Daura after attending Eid prayers to celebrate Eid El Kabir.
According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, President Buhari was observing this year’s Eid holiday in his native home Daura, Katsina State and would return to Abuja after the two-day public holidays.
‘‘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.
