The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Friday assessed his regime as the nation commemorates Democracy Day and returned a verdict that he has recorded “notable achievements.”
Buhari made the declaration in his nationwide broadcast to the nation.
The President said, “We have recorded notable achievements in the course of implementing our nine priority objectives and are establishing a solid foundation for future success.
“On the economic front, our objectives have remained to stabilise the macroeconomy, achieve agricultural and food security, ensure energy sufficiency in power and petroleum products, develop infrastructure, fight corruption and improve governance.
“We have witnessed eleven quarters of consecutive GDP growth since exiting recession. The GDP grew from 1.91% in 2018 to 2.27% in 2019 but declined to 1.87% in the first quarter of 2020 as a result of the decline in global economic activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Meanwhile, Nigerians have continued reacting negatively through the Presidency twitter account on President Buhari’s June 12 broadcast.
They said the President’s acclaimed achievements are AUDIO, while many are calling him to focus more on issues of Insecurity that’s currently ravaging lives in all the parts on the country rather than celebrating democracy day.
They also urged him to work harder on revamping the country’s economy instead of praising himself.
