President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his government empathises with Nigerians over the pains they are going through, occasioned by fuel scarcity, poor power supply and inflation among others.
The president also promised, that his administration is also working round the clock to ease the pains of Nigerians who propelled him into office.
He said, “As a government that was propelled into office by the power of the people, we cannot
but feel the pains of our compatriots, and we deeply empathise with them. We are working round the clock to ease the pains of Nigerians, and the efforts of the government have started yielding fruits as we seek to make the petroleum products available nationwide, restore gas supply to the power generating firms, reflate the economy and put Nigerians back to work.”
Buhari said that Nigerians have not entered ‘one chance’ by voting him into power, and that his administration will still deliver on its promises.
According to him, “the One Chance drivers and their conductors have been driven out of town.”
The president who spoke through the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed at an event in Lagos, said “We understand that Nigerians have started questioning whether this indeed is the CHANGE they voted for, while some have even gone as far as saying that by voting for our party, Nigerians have entered one chance.
“Well, I can tell Nigerians that our CHANGE AGENDA is real, and that indeed, they will get the change they voted for.”
He continued: “While we cannot but provide context for the challenges being faced by our countrymen and women today, in the sense that it has taken years of mismanagement, corruption and inefficiency to get to this sorry pass, we make no excuses. After all the people voted for us so we can correct the mistakes of the past and enthrone good governance. We are doing just that. But we want our compatriots to realize that 16 years of rot cannot be cleaned up overnight. It is much easier to destroy than to build. But we are determined to rebuild our country and to make life more abundant for our people.
“Change is a process, and that process has begun. We commend Nigerians for their perseverance. We urge them not to lose their confidence in the ability of this Administration to bring about the much-needed change.
“The pains of today are temporary, and will soon give way to abundance joy as we put our country firmly on the path of sustainable growth and development”, Buhari said.
