The Presidency has said the country is more safe and secure under President Muhammadu Buhari in the last seven and half years.
Special Adviser to President Muhamadu Buhari on media, Femi Adesina, stated this on Wednesday night during an appearance on Politics Today, a political programme on Channels Television.
Adesina insisted that his principal would leave a more secure and united country as a legacy than what he met in 2015 when he assumed office.
The presidential spokesman said the Buhari government has performed incredibly well in the area of security, infrastructural development and other major sectors of the economy.
He said: “It like an incestuous relationship, I shouldn’t be the one doing the rating. Those that said the government is a failure have the right to their opinion but it does not make the opinion right.
The thing is that where were we in 2015, and where are we today? In 2015, insecurity, especially insurgency was at every door, every city but now it has been beaten back.
On economy, going to 60 years, Nigeria has been paying lip service to economic diversification but it has never done but as we speak, Nigeria’s economy is diversified. Look at our GDP, oil that used to attract 25 percent of our GDP now attracts less than 10 per cent. While other things like agriculture, ICT. So the most important thing is that the Nigerian economy is no more mono.
If there is one legacy President Buhari would leave behind is that he met a country that was divided and he held the country together. Today, the semblance of security cannot be compared to what we had in 2015 and things are looking up and getting better”.
