President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that his administration would commence the implementation of its campaign promises immediately the 2016 budget was passed into law by the National Assembly.
This assurance was stated on Wednesday, February 3, by the Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, who represented the President, during the inauguration of the newly-constructed Ota township road in Ado-Odo/Ota Council Area of Ogun.
NAN reports that the inauguration of the road, among other projects, was part of the activities lined up in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the state.
He said: ”I want to assure the people that immediately the budget is passed into law, we will zoom into action and all our promises will be fulfilled.
”We have plans for artisans and market women; they are already in our plans in the budget and we will give them soft loans to boost their businesses.
“We must not lose sight of the fact that it is the masses that voted for us and we must not let them down.”
The president, who re-affirmed his mandate to train over 500,000 volunteer teachers with full payments, said that the cornerstone of the present government was to provide employment for youths across the country.
He also insisted that all government’s promises, particularly to the youth, would be fulfilled.
The president also inaugurated the Aiyetoro township road in the Yewa North Local Government Area.
