Buhari To Nigerians: “Don’t Expect Miracles From Me”

share on:

President-elect Muhammad Buhari has told Nigerians not to expect miracles when he resumes office on the 29th of May.

Buhari said this in an interview with the BBC when asked about Boko Haram.

He said:

“…for five, six years, the Nigerian enforcement law agencies, including the military, couldn’t secure 14 Local Governments.

“How can I promise miracles when I come? But with the cooperation of our neighbours Cameroon, Chad, Niger and the international community, and the commitment we are going to get from the military, I think it will take us a much shorter time to deal with it.”

On fighting corruption and unemployment, the President elect said: “I made that promise and I hope Nigerians will give me the opportunity to see whether my effort will be good enough or not.”

He however, admitted that the tasks are enormous but would be dealt with.
