The presidency has stated that history will be kind to president Muhammadu Buhari.
In statement made by Presidential aide, Garba Shehu he made it known that it will be so because Buhari will be remembered as the President who made real contributions to economic and overall national development by eliminating the evils of corruption embedded in subsidies.
He said that years after the All Progressives Congress (APC) came to power, the administration has worked hard to meet many expectations.
“There is nothing new in the fact that the country is today fighting multiple challenges along with COVID-19, including low earnings, near-collapse of the oil market, floods, threats of terrorism and banditry but the challenges notwithstanding, a good government must take decisions for the people’s good, he said
“As President, Muhammadu Buhari takes these difficult decisions, both popular and unpopular and as a leader because he is demonstrating the right courage to take such decisions as they become necessary in view of present circumstances.
“History will be kind to President Buhari because in addition to his amazing ability to command votes, he will be remembered as the President who made real contributions to economic and overall national development by eliminating the evils of corruption embedded in subsidies.
“In any democracy, the most important certificate in governance is acceptance by the people and, with the support of ordinary Nigerians, President Buhari has shown a rare determination to carry out the bold initiatives as these ones driven by nothing other than the greatest good for the greatest number of people.”
The statement added that Buhari is pushing development goals not politics and that history will judge him in favourable terms rather than his critics in the new media and the opposition.
