President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday made it clear that he is so much concerned with tackling the rate of insecurity and economic challenges in Nigeria than preoccupying himself with the forthcoming 2019 election.
Muhammadu Buhari continued by saying that he campaigned on three major issues, to secure the country, revive the economy and fight corruption. We have elections next year, politicians are already pre-occupied with the polls, but I am bothered more about security and the economy,” he stressed.
We are encouraging more British companies to come to Nigeria. We appreciate the support you have given in training and equipping our military, particularly in the war against insurgency, but we want to also continue to work with you on trade and investment.
President Buhari briefed Prime Minister on the strides in agriculture, which he said has put Nigeria firmly on the road to food self-sufficiency.“I am very pleased with the successes in agriculture,” he said, adding: “We have reduced rice importation by about 90%, made lots of savings of foreign exchange, and generated employment. People had rushed to the cities to get oil money, at the expense of farming. But luckily, they are now going back to the farms. Even professionals are going back to the land. We are making steady progress on the road to food security.
