On Sunday, the Presidency made public a 90-page fact sheet that provides a detailed account of the major accomplishments of the Muhammadu Buhari-led government as it approaches the end of its tenure on May 29.
The statement was signed by Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity.
The fact sheet covers several key areas, including signing 37 bills into law, 12 executive orders, various infrastructure projects, bilateral agreements, and fiscal reforms.
Additionally, the document lists the appointment and election of numerous distinguished Nigerians into leadership positions in various global organizations.
This release of the fact sheet comes as the Buhari administration prepares to hand over power to a new government.
The document aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the government’s accomplishments over the course of its tenure, serving as a testament to the achievements of the administration.
The statement was titled ‘Buhari’s footprint on the sands of time.’
It read in part, “In about four weeks, President Muhammadu Buhari is the country’s number one citizen. For eight years, he has served, making a beneficial impact on nearly all sectors of the national landscape: security, economy, anti-corruption, infrastructure; rail, roads, air and seaports, power, housing, water resources, the oil and gas sector, legislative matters, foreign affairs, sports, youth development, and many others.
“The Presidential Communications Team here brings a one-stop shop of achievements under the Buhari administration covering eight years of two terms. It’s a collector’s item, an answer to the questions of those who would rather complain, looking at a half-empty cup rather than a half-filled one.
“Those who are objective, taking a dispassionate look at this fact sheet, would admit that President Buhari came and served meritoriously. As he had promised many times, he would not be leaving Nigeria the way he met it.”
