THE Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Garba Shehu, says his principal would leave behind a more secure and prosperous country at the end of his tenure in 2023.
Shehu, who stated this in a Channels Television’s programme, Politics Today, said despite terrorist attacks in most parts of the country, President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration would triumph and leave behind a safer country.
He also revealed that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) would suspend its five-month strike soon.
Shehu said: Much has been achieved in the country. Our worry now is people forget where we were coming from. That’s why some people are saying nothing has been done. The example begins with you. People are not just being fair with their assessment of this administration. They are just launching wrong, misplaced campaigns on President Buhari and they will not succeed.
“Of course, President Buhari has an enormous political image upon which his political party rests. Because over 20 million Nigerians are benefiting from the social investment programmes put in place by the government, whether they are eating in schools or getting paid at the end of every month.
“I am a Nigerian. I live in the country. I didn’t come from the moon. I feel what’s happening and have never suggested that there are no hardships in the country. There are problems, and the government is working to solve the problem. The president’s assurance is that he will leave a safer country than he had met it.”
