“My administration will concentrate on three major areas on assumption of office; that is insecurity, the economy/unemployment and corruption. We will ensure we nip insecurity in bud.
“The Nigeria Army could not do small thing, they have to bring in South African mercenaries to enable them record the recent gains in the North East.”
These were the words of President-elect Muhammadu Buhari, while playing host to the national executive council of the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) on Monday.
Speaking on governance, Buhari said his administration would make sure every Nigerian lives within his honest earnings, adding that “a situation where people live above their earnings will not be tolerated.”
APC holds forum on policy direction for new government
Ahead of the inauguration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) central government in the country, the roadmap for the policy direction of the Buhari administration would be unveiled during a two-day policy dialogue to be held in Abuja on Wednesday and Thursday.
The policy dialogue, with theme, 'Implementing Change: From Vision to Reality', is being organised by the Policy, Research and Strategy Directorate of the APC Presidential Campaign Council.
Briefing journalists in Abuja, the deputy head of the directorate and former minister of youth and sports, Bolaji Abdullahi, said the president-elect would declare the dialogue open while the vice-president-elect, Prof Yemi Osibajo (SAN), would chair it.
Former British PM, Mr. Tony Blair, is the keynote speaker at the dialogue where input to the roadmap for the actualisation of the policies of the incoming administration would be made by experts.
Abdullahi identified the core areas of focus in the two-day dialogue to include the economy, governance, job creation and security in line with the APC manifesto.
