In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, President Buhari also promised that the prudent economic management, diversification of production and revenue bases of the administration in the last four years will be sustained for better prospects for all Nigerians.
“The Next Level is to consolidate whatever we have done till 2023 and it makes common sense that in order to manage any outfit, whether a nation, state or organisation, you have to secure it.
‘‘We all know how many local governments Boko Haram were occupying. People from the North-east know that they are not holding any local government today. They were holding 17 out of the 774 local governments before we came in 2015; they are not holding any now.”
The president also noted that a key objective of his administration which had yielded positive results, in the last four years, was the campaign for the nation to return to agriculture.
Stating that the country cannot afford to lag behind again in agriculture, Buhari said this was to encourage agriculture, and fertiliser was made available at half the price to local farmers.
‘‘We encouraged people to go back to land. The response was excellent. We have virtually achieved food security; we have stopped the importation of rice.
‘‘The money we have saved in foreign exchange is in hundreds of millions of dollars, not even in naira. We are putting that into infrastructure,’’ the President said.
