President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday
reassured Nigerians that his administration was
committed to removing “the hardships the
country is going through.”
In a Sallah message to Nigerians to mark
Monday’s Eid-el-Kabir, Mr. Buhari explained
that “the present recession is as a result of
cumulative effects of worldwide economic
downturn and failure in the past to plan and
save for difficult times.”
“It is impossible to separate the present from
the past to appreciate the extent to which
mistakes of the past are affecting everyday life
today,” he said.
He highlighted various sectors his
administration was working on to improve the
life of Nigerians.
Read the president’s full statement below:
Fellow Compatriots, as you celebrate the Eid-El-
Kabir, I salute your steadfastness in spite of the
difficult economic times the country is going
through.
The lessons of the Eid are piety and sacrifice
and, my dear brothers and sisters, you have
exhibited these in equal measure.
The present recession is as a result of
cumulative effects of worldwide economic
downturn and failure in the past to plan and
save for difficult times. It is impossible to
separate the present from the past to
appreciate the extent to which mistakes of the
past are affecting everyday life today.
I assure you that this administration is working
round the clock to remove the hardships the
country is going through. Rail and road
constructions, projects in the housing sector,
support for farmers and for small and medium
scale industries, youth and women’s
empowerment programmes, support for revival
of industries are all designed to reinvigorate the
economy and enhance living standards of
ordinary people.
We are getting security right. We are stopping
corruption in its tracks and we will get the
economy right by the Grace of God.
I enjoin Muslims to live by the dictates of Islam,
to keep good relationships with their Christian
brothers and sisters and as patriots to maintain
the spirit of the Nigerian nation.
I wish everyone happy holidays.
Muhammadu Buhari
