President Muhammadu Buhari has assured that the Federal Government is doing its best to correct and reverse the terrible mismanagement the country had experienced, “and, with some luck, our best will be good enough.”
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in a statement, yesterday, said Buhari said this when he received a delegation of non-career ambassadors, who came to State House, Abuja, to congratulate him on his re-election.
He said Nigeria is trying to live within her means, “so we can improve our lot,” and added that government is determined to upgrade the country’s profile, both locally and internationally.
Buhari also saiod it would be inexcusable for government not to take care of its envoys in their various stations, hence, the special attention being paid to the country’s foreign missions.
Speaking on behalf of the delegation, Ambassador Ashimiyu Olaniyi, said president Buhari’s election in 2015, and his re-election, are divine interventions in the affairs of the country.
“You are God-sent. You have always come on stage at the critical moments of our national history to right the wrongs of the past,” ambassador Olaniyi said.
