Next four years will be tough, says Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has held a special meeting with members of his cabinet where he told them that the new four-year mandate given to his administration would be tough.

He told them that he would pursue his campaign promises of securing the country, transforming the economy and the fight against corruption.

The cabinet ministers were in the State House, Abuja, on Friday to congratulate him on his electoral victory.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had on Wednesday declared President Buhari, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the 2019 Presidential Election, held on Feb. 23.

Buhari was declared re-elected having polled 15,191,847 votes, winning in 19 states, to defeat other 72 candidates including Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who scored 11, 255,978 votes.

The president said: “My last lap of four years I think is going to be tough because people are very forgetful – that was why wherever I went I reminded them of the campaign by our party of the three fundamental issues – security because you have to secure a country or an institution to manage it properly.

“If you don’t secure it you can’t manage it no matter how much propaganda you put in place.

“Secondly the economy, the unemployed able bodies is the problem of this country as a whole – more than 60 per cent are youths – that meant 35 years and below – they need to be kept busy.

“I realised that and I think God heard our prayers that the two previous rainy seasons were good and we had the foresight to get the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Central Bank to try and give soft loans to farmers so that able bodies that have land can go back to land.’’

The President, who also spoke on his campaign tour, stated that the successful completion of the tour had proven the opposition wrong that he was unfit to govern the nation.

He said the campaign tour did not only prove that he was medically fit but a clear indication that he was ready to continue in leading Nigeria for the next four years.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the highlight of the event was the presentation of congratulatory cards to the president by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha and the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs Winfred Oyo-Ita.

  1. Let it be made known loud and clear that Buhari was not reelected as president of Nigeria but was simply forced upon Nigeria through the evil collaboration of INEC and the security apparatus of the country .
    He should stop deceiving himself that he was given another four year mandate. I am not a politician but every right thinking individual who observed the conduct of the presidential election will know that it was nothing but a sham. It’s shameful for INEC and Buhari, the much touted Mr “integrity” to judge the last Saturday election as free and fair .
    The Abdusalami peace committee and all observers should speak out the truth including the media fraternity instead of insulting the collective intelligence of Nigerians by upholding the results of the sham election.
    I only hope that the opposition parties will come together and fight the false mandate in the law courts, with the expectations that the judges will not be militarized and coerced like INEC .
    This is not about a particular candidate or political party. It is about doing things correctly and challenging the evil vested interests in Nigeria .
    May God deliver Nigeria from the woods .It’s not yet Uhuru for Nigeria !!!
