The president Muhammadu Buhari has saluted the steadfastness of Nigerians in the face of the difficult economic times the country was going through.

He acknowledged that the citizens had exhibited in equal measure, piety and sacrifice which, according to him, are lessons of the Eid.

Buhari , in a Sallah message on Sunday, assured Nigerians that his administration will get the economy right by the grace of God.

He said the present recession was as a result of cumulative effects of worldwide economic downturn and failure in the past to plan and save for difficult times.

According to Buhari, “It is impossible to separate the present from the past, to appreciate the extent to which mistakes of the past are affecting everyday life today.”




    The president also assures that his administration was working round the clock to remove the hardships the country was going through.

    “Rail and road constructions, projects in the housing sector, support for farmers and for small and medium scale industries, youth and women’s empowerment programmes, support for revival of industries are all designed to reinvigorate the economy and enhance living standards of ordinary people.

    “We are getting security right. We are stopping corruption in its tracks and we will get the economy right by the Grace of God,” President Buhari stated.

    He enjoined Muslims to live by the dictates of Islam as well as to keep good relationships with their Christian brothers and sisters and as patriots in order to maintain the spirit of the Nigerian nation.
