PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has promised to give Nigerian women and youth more appointments in the next four years of his administration.

He acknowledged the significant role played by women and youth toward his re-election, and said his administration will not disappoint them in the next four years.

The president gave the assurance on Sunday night while speaking at the All Progressives Congress (APC) Women and Youths Presidential Campaign team dinner to celebrate his re-election in Abuja.

“I appreciate your coming here tonight, but we have to congratulate ourselves for succeeding. We indeed thank God for this success,” he said.

President Buhari, however, promised that only those with integrity and interest of Nigeria will be considered for appointments in the next cabinet. He said more fertilisers were being made available to Nigerian farmers at a lower rate.

According to him, that resulted in an increase in agricultural production and a reduction in food importation. He also called on Nigerian youth to embrace agriculture to ensure more food sufficiency and food export.

The president faulted the sixteen-year rule of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) which, he said, wasted the nation’s resources.

According to him, the country witnessed rampant infrastructure decay in spite of the huge resources earned during the period.
