10 Key Points In President Buhari's Speech On New Year Day January 1

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, January 1, 2018 made a national speech to citizens of Nigeria. Below are the 10 main points made by President Muhammadu Buhari in his national broadcast to Nigerians Monday morning.

1. President Muhammadu Buhari unfolded his government’s plan for a comprehensive rollout and investments in roads, rail and power infrastructure in the country.
2. He equally vowed to ensure that oil marketers who have subjected Nigerians to harrowing experiences during the Christmas and New Year celebrations by hoarding and diverting fuel would not go unpunished.
3. According to him, the Ministry of Power, Works and Housing was leading the country’s infrastructure revolution with a view to achieving global economic advancement through the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP), adding that in pursuit of the agriculture revolution by his government, importation of rice will end this year.
4. On road infrastructure, the president who disclosed that Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) had been reconstituted and ordered to carry out rapid road upgrade within 12 weeks in all the six geopolitical zones, stated that the recent N100 billion raised through Sukuk bond would address 25 major highways with N16.67 billion earmarked for use in each geopolitical zone. He pointed out that the Lagos-Calabar coastal line would also link Ore in Ondo State with a number of South-south towns.
5. While disclosing that power transmission had been ramped up to 7,000 megawatts (MW), he said for the first time on December 8, 2017, the country generated 5,155MW of electricity and proceeded to highlight other achievements in the power sector.
6. The president also said that the massive public works currently being spearheaded by his government would lead to the nation’s recovery and simultaneously create millions of jobs, adding that government was slowly stabilising the economy through sustainable policies and programmes captured in the economic recovery plan.
7. He Appealed to “enterprising Nigerians” with useful ideas to get involved in job creation.
8. Speaking on the agitation for restructuring, Buhari said Nigeria’s problems border mainly on processes and not structure as being agitated.
9. As the 2019 electioneering period draws nearer, Buhari counselled politicians to avoid exploiting ethnicity and religion, cautioning that such attitude must be avoided in order to promote harmony.
10. He also said short-term measures had been evolved to combat kidnapping through what he described as tighter police methods with prescribed severe penalties for kidnappers, adding that the government was effectively engaging Niger Delta leaders with a view to addressing the challenges of the region including the Ogoni clean.

@Uroko: You are right. The recent adjustment in policies regarding leadership by the National Assembly favours the youths but actuallization of these policies is what WE ARE ALL WAITING FOR

Onis Joel

It will be better if he concentrate on One thing and get it right. These 10 key points are just like the normal manifesto, they never come through.

Uroko Victor Onuora

My brother.., the logic is simple.., gone are the days when there was a stay in life called youthful age..,now its simply hustling or struggling stage..,where's a normal youth of the age termed youth going to see the resources to via for a political position when he can barely feed himself ,the age termed youth in Africa have moved up to the 40s and 50s..,gone are the days when a man is valued by the strength of his arm and back..,now its the heaviness of his pocket that counts which means that the so-called youths possesses the quality that nolonger count..,a normal youth loses his viable age and stage in life because he's on bended knees struggling and hustling to make it and before he looks up he's way above 40..,that's why youthful age have now moved to the 40s and 50s and we the real youths are been regarded as incompetent toddlers
