Excerpts of the statements read:”As Nigeria marks her diamond jubilee anniversary, there are so many achievements and successes of President Muhammadu Buhari led APC administration which should put citizens in celebration mood today”.
“The massive infrastructural developments that spread across the country, the construction and re-construction of so many roads, rail stations, bridges, including the second Niger bridge, the improvement on electricity supply and agricultural revolution through the home grown economy policy have shored up the economy.
“Today, Buhari’s government has put Nigeria on the path of food security and sufficiency.
The local content policy has shown that Nigeria can eat and be sustained with what the country has produced.
“Youth restiveness has drastically reduced because of the social investment programmes of Buhari’s administration, as several youths have been gainfully engaged through the N-Power, Trader – Money, Grants and loans. The fight against corruption is yielding positive result. President Buhari’s administration has recovered looted funds. Nigeria is now winning the war against insurgency, kidnapping, militancy and banditry”, the statement concluded.
