Buhari's nominee rejects NERC chairmanship nomination

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, said the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, did not leave anything behind after their 16 years stay in power.

According to the President, who insisted that better days lie ahead for Nigerians, the PDP has no legacy that can be pointed to.

He said: ‘‘I want Nigerians to realise that what this government inherited after 16 years of the PDP government was no savings, no infrastructure, no power, no rail, no road and no security.”

A statement by the president’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Shehu Garba, disclosed that President Buhari stated this Daura, Katsina State, after attending Eid prayers.

The president also vowed that militancy in the Niger Delta would be resolved by his administration, while calling on patriotic Nigerians not to entertain any fear about his administration’s fight against corruption.

He promised that justice and fairness will be extended to all.

The statement reads: ‘‘Nigerians can see what we have done on Boko Haram and what we are doing to resolve the problem in the Niger Delta.

‘‘Before the elections, we identified three major problems confronting our country. The first is security; we need to sufficiently secure our country to manage it well.

‘‘The second is economy, especially job for the youths and fighting corruption which is continuous.

‘‘For the youths, graduates and non-graduates who are interested in agriculture, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture in collaboration with the CBN are doing something to provide employment for them,’’ the President said.
