365 Days In Office, See How Nigerians Assess Buhari


Today, May 29th 2016 marks 365 days, and exactly one year of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

As President Buhari marks one year in office, Nigerians air their views on the overall performance of the President Buhari-led government.

General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) was sworn in as President of Nigeria one year ago on May 29, 2015, defeating ex-president Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan in a keenly contested and widely acclaimed presidential poll which saw Jonathan concede defeat to Buhari – the first time an incumbent president would do so.

It is believed Buhari won based on the promises he made to end the Boko Haram insurgency and to eradicate corruption in Nigeria.

On Boko Haram, President Buhari promised to “…bring to an end the menace of Boko Haram terror that is plaguing the society… An APC government throughout the country definitely will do that.”

On corruption, Buhari also confidently declared that “…there will be no confusion as to where I stand. Corruption will have no place and the corrupt will not be appointed into my administration.”

So far, the president seems to have made some progress in these areas in the last 365 Days.

As regards youth unemployment, President Buhari had promised during his campaign to create one million jobs for Igbo youths in the southeast when elected president.

He also promised to revamp Enugu coal deposits and provide the country’s residents with 3 million jobs annually and handle the lingering issue of unemployment.

President Buhari in a nationwide broadcast earlier today highlighted some of the major achievements of his administration, promising to do more.
