President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed how his administration saves about N25 billion monthly for Nigeria.
Speaking on Saturday in Jos, at the graduation ceremony of Senior Executice Course 39 of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, NIPSS, Kuru, Plateau state, the president said his government saves the nation about N25 billion monthly through the stoppage of unnecessary allowances for government officials and blockage of other financial leakages in all its agencies.
Premium Times reports that President Buhari was represented at the event by his Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
Mr. Buhari was said to have scored his government high saying the government has effectively tackled corruption.
He said the government will not relent in its fight against graft.
Mr. Osinbajo said the ongoing elementary school feeding programme has targeted 5.5 million children to be captured in 19 states before the end the administration’s tenure.
He said challenges being faced in power supply in Nigeria will soon be history.
He urged authories of NIPSS to improve on recommendations made by its participants while discussing national economic development.
He assured that the federal government would make “good use of recommendations of the course participants on agriculture.”
