President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he is building roads and trains for the Niger Republic since it is his home.
The Nigerian President stated during a live appearance on Arise TV on Thursday morning that developing roads and trains to the Niger Republic is not a bad idea because the country is his home.
President Buhari, who emphasized his accomplishments thus far, stated that everyone can attest to the fact that the country is better than it was when he arrived in 2015, and that insecurity has decreased dramatically under his watch. He praised the Niger Republic’ s government for sticking alongside Nigeria in the fight against insecurity.
” The Government of the Niger Republic called a meeting with all stakeholders a few weeks ago to ensure unity between their country and Nigeria; basically, we’ ve partnered together to fight insecurity in our countries, and the results so far have been impressive, and we have no regrets for such a partnership; Nigeria is now better than it was when I took over the mantle of leadership in 2015. “
President Buhari emphasized the importance of unity between Nigeria and the Niger Republic, stating that the present unity between the two countries should not be compromised because of the financial prospects it has provided.
” We are very pleased and impressed that many Nigerians have returned to their farms, and we have ensured that our neighboring country, Niger, is safe as well, because many people in Niger order food from Nigeria, and our people here order food from them, which is why our unity should not be jeopardized. “
The President, who expressed pleasure with his government’ s achievements in the battle against corruption, said that while ending corruption is a challenging challenge, his government has assured that the aim of making Nigeria corruption- free is realized.
” Corruption is very difficult to fight under this system; I faced similar difficulties during the military regime in 1983, but they were not as difficult as what we are facing today; what I did then was arrest all the suspects, put them in prison, and then prove their guilt or innocence; however, today, you cannot arrest anyone just like that because it is democracy. “
We’ ve made it essential for all public officials to declare their assets, and if we detect there’ s more money in your bank account, we’ ll contact you to ask you to prove where the money came from, and if you can’ t, we’ ll lose the money. We’ ve accomplished a lot here. “
President Buhari harped on insecurity in the North East, praising the governor of Borno State, Gov. Babagana Zulum, for his tenacity in combating insecurity. The President claims that the governor of Borno has taken significant risks to safeguard the safety of his people.
” The North East situation is a difficult one, and the Governor of Borno is working extremely hard and taking significant risks to secure the safety of his state. “
In response to a query on Shekau’ s death, President Buhari stated that certain youngsters are doing what they are doing because of unemployment and hunger, emphasizing that this has become one of Nigeria’ s most serious issues.
” I asked the governor of Borno the other day if these Boko Haram members are Nigerians or foreigners, and he said they are all Nigerians. I believe we have an unemployment problem. A lot of youths are doing everything they can to feed themselves, find a place to stay, and for a variety of other necessities of life. The level of poverty is almost unimaginable.
