Special Adviser to  President Muhammadu Buhari  on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina on Thursday came up with a very positive rating of his boss, president  Buhari, saying that the administration  has performed creditably well in the last five years in power.
 In a special report examination of the Buhari administration unveiled to mark the fifth anniversary of his  administration, Adesina said the Buhari has accomplished many positive and very  impactfull landmarks  in all areas of governance across the  country.  

Adesina, in a statement to celebrate the one year of the president’s second term in office,  said the Buhari administration,  has  in accordance with his election promises  in 2015  achieved great progress and change in the special  areas of security, economic  development and anti-corruption war.

 “Between May 29, 2015, when it was inaugurated for the first term, and now, the Buhari administration has made salutary impact in almost all the facets of Nigerian life.

“The government swept into office on the wings of change and that change has been wrought in nearly all phases of national life. Where the lofty goals are yet to be attained, it is work in progress, and eyes are firmly fixed on the ball. No distraction.

“The three umbrella areas on which government based its interventionist agenda are: security, reviving the economy (with particular emphasis on job creation, especially for youths) and fighting corruption. In these three areas, where we are today cannot be compared with where we used to be, ” Adesina explained.

The presidential spokesman further noted that “by May 2015, insecurity had badly fractured the fabric of the nation. No one could wager that the country would survive the next month, not to talk of another year” but this has changed.

He  was quoted as saying in  the statement :“Bombs went off like firecrackers, insurgents ran riot round the country, other forms of crime and criminality held sway. Life was nasty, brutish and short.

“Over five years, the battle has been taken to insurgents and criminals. And they are being extinguished by the day, and very close to complete extirpation.

“The economy, long dependent on a mono product – petroleum, is being retooled, refocused, with diversification as a task that must be accomplished. Agriculture has been given a fillip, manufacturing has got a shot in the arm and solid minerals are contributing a large chunk to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The country is very close to food security, with rice, beans, maize, millet, and all sorts of grain no longer imported. We now eat what we grow.

“On the war against corruption, no quarter is asked and none is given. Commit the crime, do the term. No retreat, no surrender.”
