President Muhammadu Buhari has officially announced that the dark days of impunity in the country are gone for good.
This was announced in a statement released by the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, while receiving the leadership of the Nigerian Institute of Quantity Surveyors, NIQS.
President Buhari said, ‘‘Let me start by thanking you for your kind prayers,’’ the President told members of the Institute, who came to congratulate him on his re-election and pledge their solidarity with his administration.
‘‘Nigerians have clearly spoken of their desire for the country to move forward. On our part, we remain committed to the Change Agenda. By the grace of God, and with your continued prayers and support, the dark days of impunity are gone for good,’’ he said.
‘‘This is why in the past three years; we focused on key job-creating sectors such as agriculture and infrastructure development.
‘‘You will all recall that our agriculture and infrastructure programmes contributed to our exit from recession. This is a clear example of how, if we push ‘inclusive’ job-creating policies, growth will follow.
‘‘We will remain committed to these and other programmes to ensure the success of our nation is felt by the majority of Nigerians,’’ he said.
The high-point of the event was the conferment of the Fellowship Grade of the NIQS – the highest cadre of membership – on Buhari. President Buhari was also honoured with the ‘‘Life Champion of Anti-Corruption Crusade in Nigeria’’ Award.
