President Muhammadu Buhari has insisted that he has fulfilled major promises made to electorate during his political campaign.
Buhari made this known on Tuesday when he paid homage to Lamido of Adamawa, Alhaji Muhammadu Barkindo at his palace in Yola saying the fight against corruption and maintaining peace and security were among the priorities of his administration.
“We appreciate security progress in the North East and the country at large. We are lucky that for the past two years farmers across the country experienced excellent harvests,” Buhari said.
He said that Federal ministry of agriculture and Central Bank of Nigeria would continue to support famers in years to come in order to sustain sufficient national food production and economy growth.
On his part, Barkindo advised Buhari not to listen to the call by some “empty barrel Nigerian elites” saying he should not seek for a second term.
“I am calling you to remain focus, stand firm and don’t listen to the empty barrels Nigerian elites who are calling you not to re-contest for 2019 Presidential election. They are burying their heads in shame and telling people that Buhari’s led Government has done nothing,” Barkindo noted.
He noted that the elite had forgotten that Buhari introduced Treasury Single Account where Tens of Trillions of naira belonging to Nigerian people was saved as he listed some of the visible achievements of Buhari to include security, economy and fight against corruption.
The Monarch, however, appealed to the President to intervene and reconsider the upgrading of Moddibo Adama University of Technology, Yola into full pledge conventional university with schools of management, Information Technology, Health among others.
