Buhari also told the Nigerians that he was fully aware of the expectations of those who elected him on the platform of change and integrity, while vowing to address infrastructure situation and end insurgency in Nigeria’s north-east, hopefully by the end of the year.
He said: “We are seeking to create jobs through agriculture, mining, industrial value-addition and the promotion of small scale enterprises. We are also taking steps to address criminality across the country. We are tackling the menace of terrorism posed by Boko Haram head on and I am pleased to note that though sporadic attacks on soft targets have not stopped, the over-all capacity of Boko Haram to hold territory and determine the course of the conflict has been severely degraded.”
