President Muhammadu Buhari has given his government a pat on the back for doing its best in delivering on the promises made to Nigerians during the 2015 electioneering.
He stated this on Thursday at the Presidential Villa in Abuja while receiving a delegation from King Salman of Saudi Arabia.
Buhari said his administration was mindful of the three-pronged promises made to Nigerians during campaigns for the 2015 elections.
The President said he has remained undeterred and focused on securing the lives and properties of all Nigerians.
“From the very time we came until now, we have been able to do our best, and we remain focused on delivering on our promises,’’ he said.
Buhari told the Saudi Arabian delegation that the priority of his administration had so far been on securing the country, buoying the economy and curbing corruption so that Nigerians would start benefitting from the rich natural and human resources of the country.
He expressed appreciation to the King Salman Aid and Relief Centre, and the Saudi Development Fund for providing relief materials, worth $10 million, to internally displaced persons, IDPs, in the North-east.
Leader of the Saudi Arabian delegation, Nasser Bin Mutlaq, said the visit and the donation of relief materials was an extension of the good relations both countries had shared over the years.
“We are directed to offer materials and food for the displaced persons in the north-east worth 10 million dollars. We have had a field visit to the places and seen the humanitarian situation ourselves,’’ he said.
