Concerned Northern Patriots has scored President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration high for curbing terrorism after just one year in office.
The group, which pledged to work with all interest groups that are positive towards the administration, also praised the President’s war against corruption campaign.
A communiqué signed by the Chairman of the group, Alhaji Muhammadu Gwaska, particularly said that the anti-graft agencies have been revitalised to investigate and prosecute corruption cases.
It stated further that recently, Boko Haram have been dislodged in various local governments which it occupied previously in the north east.
“In the war against corruption, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and other security agencies have been revitalised and made more credible, and various cases of corruption are at various levels of investigation or prosecution.
“On the issues of security of lives and property and the Boko Haram insurgency in the north east, it is common knowledge that Boko Haram has been degraded and dislodged in the various local governments they held in the north east.”
In response, the elders commended Buhari for releasing bailout funds to states to pay workers’ salaries, noting that it mitigated the suffering at the state level and appeal for more bailout to enable states clear backlog of salary arrears.
Also, the group said that the introduction of Treasury Single Account, TSA, which has recovered over N3 trillion was a bold decision that was taken by the present administration.
The group lauded the recent move by the government to reduce unemployment by recruiting 500,000 teachers across the country, but urged the President to give listening ears to genuine complaints of Nigerians.
“As patriots who would want to see development and harmony in this country, we would also implore President Muhammadu Buhari to continue be the listening President that he is and look into the genuine complaints from members of his party and Nigerians in general in order to discourage infiltrations of spoilers in the rank of his party and government”, it concluded.
