President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated the commitment of his government to the provision of adequate security, improved economy and the fight against corruption.
The president made the remark on Tuesday at the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential campaign held in Ondo State.
Buhari is the APC presidential candidate.
Speaking at the rally which was well attended, the president said that much as his government had succeeded in fulfilling the promises it made, it would do more in the Next Level if voted in during the coming election.
His words: “The only thing I will do is to remind you of our campaign in 2015 which was based on three fundamental issues – security, economy and fighting corruption. On the economic side, it is evidently clear by what the vice president has mentioned. On the security, in the North East, Boko Haram used to hold part of their local governments, but they are no longer doing that… What I will assure you is that we are going to secure this country.”
He said the economy had also improved.
According to him, to a reasonable extent, Nigeria had become self sufficient in the area of food.
The president who also spoke on the fight against corruption said those who had stolen the nation’s wealth were being prosecuted and the loot returned to the nation’s treasury.
He emphasized the success achieved in the area of infrastructure too, saying that examples abound in the construction of roads and rails among others.
Speaking earlier, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo spoke about the different programmes embarked upon by the government to improve the economy.
He said of great significance among others was the N-Power project which had made life more meaningful to the youths.
He said in the Next Level, the graduates being released from universities every year would be taken care of through employment opportunities.
Top APC members present include Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole and Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State among others.
