Former President Muhammadu Buhari has claimed that he achieved his goals in security, economy, and corruption during his tenure. Buhari said he successfully fought insecurity, unemployment, and ensured investments in Nigeria.
Buhari made these claims in an interview with the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA), which was published on its X page. He said Nigerians can now see the difference in these areas when compared to the previous administrations.
Buhari said he set three objectives for his government: security, economy, and fighting corruption. He said he suppressed insecurity and boosted the economy in comparison with the administrations he took over from.
He said: “Not quite, but I would like Nigerians to reflect on the condition of Boko Haram before we came in and also the economy.
“So security, economy, and fighting corruption were the objectives I set before the government I led. I hope Nigerians have been following it and saw the difference.”
Buhari also praised the governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum, for his role in tackling Boko Haram in the Northeast. He said Zulum was young and incorruptible and that he was lucky to have him in charge of the region where Boko Haram was operating.
He said: “I know the government I led was lucky to get the governor of Borno State, he is young and incorruptible. We were lucky to have him in charge of the Northeast where Boko Haram was operating.
“I achieved my goal in security, economy, employment, and because we succeeded in insecurity, Nigerians developed confidence in their country and they invested more and people from outside came and invested.”
