Buhari said this while meeting with the President of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), Dr. Bernard O. Aliyu.

Buhari said “Nigeria needs to work on her potentials, so that we don’t remain permanently at the level of potentials.

“If Ethiopia is sustained largely by her airline industry, we have greater potentials here. But we must move out, engage with the rest of the world, as we need to re-establish the integrity of this country. We need to rebuild this country again.”

Adding that “In the First Republic, more enduring infrastructure was built with meagre resources.

“We showed a lot of indiscipline in managing our economy, and that is why we are where we are today. But this time round, we’ll do our best.”
