President Muhammadu Buhari has met with and briefed Nigerians in Diaspora of the current developments back home. This was on the side-lines of the African Union-European Union Summit, in Abidjan, Cote D’ Ivoire.
The President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said that Buhari told them that “there is good news from home in the area of security, economy and anti-corruption.
“We are not doing too badly in trying to secure the country, improve the economy and deal with corruption. We are doing our best at all levels including security. It is absolute madness for people to blow others up in markets, churches, and mosques.’’
According to him, no religion advocates violence, saying that, “Justice is the basic thing all religions demand and you can’t go wrong if you do it.’’
On food security, the President said that his vision of re-positioning Nigeria as a food-secure nation was on course as the “country is on the verge of attaining food security.’’ He attributed the development to positive agricultural reform programmes and bumper harvest occasioned by good weather.
