I'll improve service delivery in my remaining years - Buhari assures Nigerians



President Muhammadu Buhari has assured that he would use the remaining part of his tenure is to improve service delivery to Nigerians, listing nine priority areas.

The President gave the assurance on Tuesday after receiving Letters of Credence from Ambassadors/High Commissioners of eight countries at the State House in Abuja.

President Buhari, according to a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, categorically said he would improve access to quality education, health care and enhance productivity,

He said efforts were being made to sustain Nigeria’s position as profitable investment destination with unequalled incentives in all sectors, especially large market and flexible tax system, which investors from various countries could take advantage of.

The Ambassadors/High Commissioners who presented their Letters of Credence are: Hocine Latil of Algeria; Luong Quoc Thinh of Vietnam; Dr Benson Alfred Bana of Tanzania; Traore Kalilou of Cote d’Ivoire; Abakar Saleh Chahaimi of Chad; Jamal Mohammed Barrow of Somalia; Brahim Salem El Mami Buseif of Sahrawi Arab Republic and Mohammed Alibak of Iran.

The President told the diplomats about Nigeria’s priority, and the need to streamline on people-focused policies.

“In our efforts to achieve a realistic domestic and foreign policy, as well as national development, we have identified the following nine priority areas to guide our policy directions over the next few years.






 





“Build a thriving and sustainable economy; Enhance social inclusion and reduce poverty; Enlarge agricultural output for food security and export; Attain energy sufficiency in power and petroleum products and expand transport and other infrastructural development.

“Expand business growth, entrepreneurship and industrialization; Expand access to quality education, affordable healthcare and productivity of Nigerians; Build a system to fight corruption, improve governance and create social cohesion; and improve security for all.’’

Describing Nigerians as the “nation’s most prized assets’’, President Buhari said the nine priority mandates were already reflected in the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan, a medium-term initiative pioneered by the government to restore economic growth and development while leveraging the resourcefulness and resilience of the citizens.

The President urged the diplomats to use the opportunity of working in the country to improve relations with their governments and people.

“I have no doubt that you might have prior and in-depth knowledge of Nigeria’s huge potential which you will hopefully see for yourselves.

I therefore, urge you to go around the country, see things for yourselves and report to your home governments.

This is important as you all are representatives of both your sending and host states.’’

President Buhari said Nigeria will remain steadfast in pursuing deeper and valuable relations among nations, without discrimination.
