Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, has promised Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari in his second term in the office would restructure the countries economy and intensify fight against corruption.
He made this claim while speaking at the victory celebration dinner of the All Progressives Congress in the UK.
Mustapha who was represented by Abdulrahman Balogun, stated that President Buhari would tackle insecurity in the nation during his second term in office.
He stated that the government would build on the successes of EFCC and ICPC by intensifying the fight against corruption.
“Non-patriotic Nigerians with itchy fingers, past and present, will continue to fall in trouble, and probity and accountability will remain the order of the day. Honesty remains the best policy,” he said.
He appreciated the party in the UK for its support toward the victory of President Buhari, he promised that his government will deliver.
“We have laid down the foundation in the last four years and we are committed to seeing matters to the end.”
“We will strive to strengthen our unity and inclusiveness so that no section or group will feel left behind or left out,” he said.
He said that Buhari Administration in his second term had a truckload of solutions to drive Nigeria ahead and lift Nigerians out of poverty.
According to him, this is going to be a term of consolidation, a term of legacy building, as encapsulated in the Next Level road map.
The three fundamental areas will continue which include security, economic revival, and fighting corruption – but there will be some other definite deliverables.
“Education will be refocused, with the curriculum tweaked to place more emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.”
“These will surely launch Nigeria into a new realm, positioning her with the developed world in the not too distant future.”
“Health care will come under focus, with the intention of building a healthy populace, who can hold their own in different areas of endeavour,”.
He added that infrastructure development like roads, rail, bridges, housing, and many others will continue.
“The country is already one massive construction site, and this will continue to further unlock economic development, and improve the quality of life.”
“The second term Government will be more inclusive. The boundless talents of Nigerians both within and outside the Country will be harnessed for national development.”
“More women, youths, and Nigerians in the Diaspora would be brought on board,” he said.
He said that poverty reduction would be a deliberate and crucial policy.
He further stated that the Social Investment Programme, which was described as the largest and most successful in African, would be enhanced with the introduction of Monibank for traders and artisans.
The SGF also said that an Entrepreneur Bank would be established to attend to small and medium scale enterprises.
He said emphasis will be placed on power generation and distribution as to make a difference in the next four years.
“Agriculture will continue to have pride of place in terms of funding.”
“Lip service had been paid to diversifying the Nigerian economy for decades, but now, it is a reality.”
“Food security will be achieved in the second term. About eight million jobs were generated from the sector in the first term, many more millions are sure to come,” he said.
