The president said the country's prestige has gone up due to the great works of his administration.
Pointing at issues such as the 'technical defeat' of Boko Haram, the Niger Delta, improved power, the Treasury Single Account (TSA) policy, and agriculture, the president said the country's prestige has gone up due to the great works of his administration.
He made these remarks at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the All Progressives' Congress (APC) at the National Secretariat in Abuja on Tuesday, October 31.
The president expressed his appreciation for the support of his party's leadership in helping his government run smoothly even when he was on medical leave in London for months.
He also thanked the principal officers in the National Assembly especially Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Speaker Mr. Yakubu Dogara for helping his administration achieve great success by putting Nigeria above their own personal interests.
The president said, "We can be proud of our achievements in the last two years, Boko Haram, Niger Delta, Regular Fuel, Improved Power, TSA, Agriculture and Fertilizer, above all, the knowledge that corruption will not be tolerated in this Government. We all know there is CHANGE.
Nigeria’s prestige has gone up, Nigeria is now credit-worthy, a clear testimony of which was the over-subscription of the Euro-Bond by 4 times.
"Nevertheless, we are not resting on our achievements. I am quite aware of the challenges before us.
"Let me thank you all again for the commitment and dedicated service to our Party and to remind you that much more will be required of you in the coming months. I hope we can continue to depend on you.
"If we keep united and rise above petty or personal quarrels we will surely achieve the desired CHANGE in the country."

The former Managing Director of the National Inland Waterways was appointed by the president on Monday, October 30, to replace Babachir Lawal who was sacked by the presidency due to his involvement in a corruption scandal that resulted into his suspension in April.
