Muhammadu-Buhari-President-of-Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday in Abuja, expressed worry and anger over the current poor state of the Nigerian economy, saying previous governments of 16 years rule of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, did not save for the “rainy day.”
Buhari spoke while receiving the President of the International Civil Aviation Organisation, ICAO, Dr. Bernard O. Aliyu at the State House, Abuja, regretted that the PDP governments failed to help the economy grow even with the all-time rise of crude oil sales of $100 dollars per barrel then.
He also declared that Nigeria needed to grow beyond mere emphasis on its potentials, and assured that his administration would do its best to develop the economy beyond rethorics.
The said “Nigeria needs to work on her potentials, so that we don’t remain permanently at the level of potentials. “If Ethiopia is sustained largely by her airline industry, we have greater potentials here. But we must move out, engage with the rest of the world, as we need to re-establish the integrity of this country. We need to rebuild this country again.”
Recalling that for the greater part of the last 16 years, oil sold above $100 per barrel but expressed regret that the nation did not have much to show for it.
“In the First Republic, more enduring infrastructure was built with meager resources. But in the past 16 years, we made a lot of money without planning for the rainy day.
“We showed a lot of indiscipline in managing our economy, and that is why we are where we are today. But this time round, we’ll do our best,” he said.
Dr. Aliyu, the Nigerian-born ICAO president commended President Buhari for strides on anti- corruption, and urged Nigeria to pay more attention to development of civil aviation.
“Civil aviation is a catalyst for economic development. The level of aviation development in any country mirrors the economic development of that country,” he said.
Dr. Aliyu pledged to support the development of the aviation industry in Nigeria, urging the country to improve on training and capacity development, aviation security, aerodromes and air navigation, runways, control towers, terminal buildings, among others

    MR BUHARI, TAKE MY ADVICE, DECLARE STATE OF ECONOMIC EMERGENCY IN NIGERIA, SUSPEND THE CONSTITUTION FOR SOMETIME AND DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO BRING TO BOOK THE TREASURY LOOTERS AND POLITICAL THIEVES AGAINST WHOM YOU HAVE SOLID EVIDENCE, THROUGH FAST TRACK JUSTICE, WITHOUT ANY PARTIALITY AND FAVOURS. WHILE DOING SO KEEP IN MIND THE LOOTERS AND THIEVES FROM YOUR OWN PARTY LIKE TINUBU AND ATIKU. YOU HAVE NO OTHER WAY OUT IF YOU WANT TO CLEAN NIGERIA OF CORRUPTION. IF DOING THIS MEANS, YOU WILL HAVE ONLY ONE TERM OF PRESIDENCY, LET IT BE SO. SINCE YOU ARE NOT STEALING YOURSELF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR, AT LEAST, YOU WOULD HAVE BROOMED THE COUNTRY OF WHOLESALE CORRUPTION. I AM SURE, FOR THIS, YOU WILL HAVE OVERWHELMING SUPPORT OF THE NIGERIAN MASSES AND THE FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS EXCEPT THE LOOTERS AND THIEVES IN THE COUNTRY. DO SOMETHING RADICAL, THE TIME IS FAST RUNNING OUT.
