Buhari will fulfill campaign promises to Nigerians

Osinbajo pointed out that the opportunity to address the nation’s numerous challenges and reposition the country for greatness is now.


The Muhammadu Buhari administration will strive to deliver on its campaign promises to the people of Nigeria, the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), has assured.

Osinbajo gave the assurance on Saturday at Ikenne, his home town where he was the Special Guest of Honour at the 39th Ereke Day celebration.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ereke is an annual festival organised in Ikenne, Ogun State, as platform for addressing the town's developmental challenges.

He said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration would keep its promises, saying ``the President has no other business besides fixing the problems of the country.’’

He cited corruption and stealing as some of the reasons why things had gone wrong in the country, adding "but it is time now to fix all that have gone wrong."

He restated the commitment of the Federal Government to address the challenges facing the country.

He said: "we have to deal with unemployment of young people; we have to deal with infrastructure; we have to deal with bad roads; we have to restore power, the challenges are many.

"But I want to assure you that every single day that President Buhari spends in Abuja; that I spend in Abuja, we will work hard to achieve the promises we have made.

"You can be sure of an honest and transparent government; you can be sure of hard work.

"You can be sure that everything we promised, we will do."

Osinbajo, who also spoke to newsmen at the end of the event, said that President Buhari was working daily on how to solve Nigeria's economic challenges.
