Don’t Expect Miracles When I Resume Office, Buhari Tells Nigerians

To match Interview NIGERIA-BUHARI/

Nigeria’s President-Elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, on Sunday called on Nigerians  not to expect miracles from him when he assumes power on May 29th.

General Buhari, who spoke with the BBC, said the war against insurgency is an ongoing, noting that “for five, six years, the Nigerian enforcement law agencies, including the military, couldn’t secure 14 Local Governments.

“How can I promise miracles when I come? But with the cooperation of our neighbours Cameroon, Chad, Niger and the international community, and the commitment we are going to get from the military, I think it will take us a much shorter time to deal with it”, he said.

On his other major campaign promises to decisively fight corruption and unemployment, the President elect said: “I made that promise and I hope Nigerians will give me the opportunity to see whether my effort will be good enough or not.”

He however, admitted that the tasks are enormous but would be dealt with.

  1. Hi.1. Two older men, worried about the ginotthsieg happening in the North have stealthily bought houses in “muslim” areas of 3 Northern cities and are renting them cheaply to Christian students just so channels of communication and respect are kept open.2. When there were “religious” riots in a Northern city dozens of Muslim families risked their lives sheltering church members when their building was attacked and stood up to the “Jihadists”.3. A man is working with his village elders to build a guest village for vacations for Nigerians using trad building materials and setting it up as a joint ownership venture so it belongs to the community.I have to be a little careful about details but the North is more varied and there is more to be hopeful there than some people realise.
