President Muhammadu Buhari has blamed Nigeria's former leading party, People's Democratic Party (PDP), for not "doing anything" during its 16-year-old rule in the country (1999 - 2015).
Buhari who was speaking to journalists during after Eid prayers in his hometown, Daura, Katsina State, said today:
"I want Nigerians to realise that what this government inherited after 16 years of the PDP government was no savings, no infrastructure, no power, no rail, no road and no security.
"Nigerians can see what we have done on Boko Haram and what we are doing to resolve the problem in the Niger Delta. Before the elections, we identified three major problems confronting our country.
“The first is security; we need to sufficiently secure our country to manage it well. The second is economy, especially job for the youths and fighting corruption which is continuous.
"For the youths, graduates and non-graduates who are interested in agriculture, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture in collaboration with the CBN are doing something to provide employment for them.”
"We should thank God this year, the reports I’m getting, which is very pleasing, is that we will have a bumper harvest this year."
