President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday said that the Federal Government was doing its best to correct and reverse “the terrible mismanagement the country had experienced in previous administrations in the country”.
President Buhari, who stated this when he received a delegation of non-career Ambassadors who came to State House, Abuja to congratulate him on his re-election, said “with some luck, our best will be good enough”.
He said Nigeria was trying to live within its means, “so we can improve our lot,”
The president said his government was determined to upgrade the country’s profile at the local and international levels.
He also said that it would be inexcusable for government not to take care of the country’s ambassadors in their various stations, hence the special attention being paid to the country’s foreign missions.
Speaking on behalf of the delegation, Ambassador Ashimiyu Olaniyi, said President Buhari’s election in 2015 and his recent re-election were divine interventions in the affairs of the country.
Olaniyi, according to a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said, “You are God-sent. You have always come on stage at the critical moments of our national history to right the wrongs of the past.”
He added that the president would be remembered “as an astute political leader who does not interfere in the political affairs of states”.
