The president-elect of Nigeria, Gen Buhari has come out to tell Nigerians not to expect miracles when he takes office on May 29th, 2015.
Muhammadu Buhari won the presidential elections on March 28th, 2015, and ran on a platform of change.
Here’s what he had to say:
We are asking Nigerians for their cooperation. They shouldn’t expect miracles to happen a couple of months after we’ve taken over because the destruction took so many years – 16 years of the ruling party’s rule of this country.
Speaking on the Boko Haram insurgency, he said: For five, six years, the Nigerian enforcement law agencies, including the military, couldn’t secure 14 local governments. How can I promise miracles when I come? But with the cooperation of our neighbors Cameroon, Chad, Niger and the international community, and the commitment we are going to get from the military, I think it will take us a much shorter time to deal with it.
