President Muhammadu Buhari says his administration has laid
a “firm foundation” for a prosperous Nigeria.


Buhari spoke on Monday at the opening ceremony for the
induction of governors-elect in Abuja.


The president, who was represented by Ibrahim Gambari, his
chief of staff, said his government has tackled the nation’s challenges,
including infrastructure, agriculture and strengthening the armed forces.


“The road has been bumpy due to a challenging fiscal
climate, but I am proud to state as we leave office in about two weeks, that we
have built a firm foundation for a prosperous Nigeria,” Buhari said.


 “Despite the
difficult fiscal conditions, we remained committed to our promises. These key
areas were strategically targeted.

“Our focus on infrastructure was to improve access to
markets, improved linkages and reduce overall supply chain costs. This singular
commitment to infrastructure development for roads, rails, airports, ports and
affordable housing was designed to create better means of livelihood for our
people and facilitate access to jobs.


“I am happy that we are succeeding in investing the nation’s
wealth in every state of the federation and a clear path for sustainable
development has been set.”


Buhari asked governors-elect to ensure they deliver on their
campaign promises to the people in their states.


He said the outcome of the 2023 elections has shown that if
an elected public official doesn’t perform, such a person will be voted out.

“One interesting development that we all saw from the last
election is that the electorates are maturing, and people are increasingly
finding their voices,” he said.


“Any public officer who fails to either meet up with the
expectations of the people or deliver on his campaign promises will be voted
out in the next election. That is what democracy is about. Deliver or get shown
the door out.


 “As returning or
incoming state executives, you also must be cognizant of the comparative
advantages inherent in each of your states, and how you can form partnerships
with each other, by leveraging your various strengths while recognizing that
there is no ‘one size fits all’ solutions.

deliver the promises we made during the campaigns.”
