Buhari will be known as one of Nigeria’s best President ever - Presidency

Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, on Sunday, 14th August said President Buhari will be known as one of Nigeria’s best presidents despite recently witnessing the heaviest public criticism since he assumed office on May 29, 2015.

In an article he published, Shehu said:

“The currency liberalisation and the
deregulation of the petroleum
products sale will make President
Buhari one of the best presidents till

“The removal of subsidies on
the petrol products has saved the government more than N2tn annual
expenditure in this respect.

“President Buhari’s foreign trips
have brought many things to the
country. He has energised our
foreign policy. Beyond the
enormous goodwill reaped from
“resetting” age-old but damaged relations with neighbours and
distant partners and friends, the
President has attracted foreign
development assistance and direct
investments. It is generally accepted
that good foreign relations bring foreign direct investment.

So much is currently being done one year into the administration. This is in spite of the world economy being sluggish and recession-stricken.”

“I don’t say that media criticism is not reflective of the feeling of the
citizens. President Buhari has himself on numerous occasions admitted that the change mantra has brought with it pain and suffering which he likened to the pains of labour. It is a
passing phase.

“When they ask the question, is this
the change we voted for, the critic
forgets how far we have come from
the scam-tainted years of the PDP
(Peoples Democratic Party) rule.

How many people have given a thought to the possibility of Nigeria doing something that the combined
strength of Europe and America
have failed to do?

“Unfair criticism of the Buhari
administration especially on account of escalating prices of foodstuff and the liberalization of the currency exchange needs to be challenged before it overshadows the commendable job the President has done in fighting terrorism as part of overall effort to secure the country, reducing corruption and yes, arresting the economic slide before it sinks the nation.”

“There are many today who take for
granted the declared victory over the Boko Haram terrorists, forgetting the reign of the bomber who made it almost impossible for regular attendance in churches and mosques in many of our cities,
including the Federal Capital City,

“Victory over Boko Haram has
brought peace not only to Nigeria
but to the countries in the Lake Chad region.

“The world leaders are still at work
trying to contain the Islamic State in
Syria and Iraq, ISIS, which threat
sadly continues to become more

“Everyone living in Nigeria knows
that there is a major movement
against corruption as part of the
ongoing change. This war has
forced the return to the treasury of
billions of Naira and millions of Dollars stolen by past officials.”
