President Muhammadu Buhari has observed that Nigerians are grudgingly accepting that his administration is doing its best given that he took over from a party that had the most resources in its 16-year reign.
Speaking on Tuesday while hosting the President of The Gambia, Adama Barrow, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, he said: ‘‘We took over from a party that had been in power for 16 years.
“During those years, the country earned an unprecedented amount of money as revenue, never seen at any time before.
“It is noteworthy that, no matter how grudgingly, the people are accepting that we are doing our best,” Buhari said in a statement issued by his Senior Special Adviser on Media & Publicity, Garba Shehu.
He further noted that one of the biggest challenges facing Nigeria is unemployment, stating that “sixty percent of the 180 million people are under 25 years. They all wish for a secure future. Those of them who are educated feel they are more qualified for employment.
“We have studied the problem and are doing our best to stabilise the situation,“ the Nigerian leader asserted.
