The president, represented by his political adviser, Senator Femi Ojudu, made the comments on Thursday, August 18, 2016, during the South West Conference of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ibadan, Oyo State.
“You all may well know, the darkest part of the night is the period before dawn. Nigeria’s dawn is about to break. We are determined to turn things around,” Buhari said.
“Change is not easy, but we are not relenting until we achieve a better life for all Nigerians. The change we advocate will be irrevocable when we are finally done. We just have to change from our old ways of doing things because things cannot be allowed to continue the way they were.
“Though, things may appear difficult at the moment, it will not be long before Nigerians start deriving the full benefits of the current policies of government which are designed to reposition the country and improve on the prevailing economic situation.
“Already, there are signs that things are turning round for the better. In the oil and gas industries for instance, many investors are showing tremendous interest in building petroleum refineries. In no distant time, the issues of fuel scarcity will become a thing of the past,” he added.
The meeting was also attended by APC Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun and Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi among others.
