By the time I started seeing people complaining about this administration,
Some have on the other hand agreed that, we have started seeing change and the administration is on the right track and serious in its determination; citing examples with tackling of insecurity challenge, fight against corruption and recovering of billion of dollars looted from our commonwealth by the officials of the immediate past administration.
I will personally, which is even the reason for writing this piece, agree with the second group that this administration is serious and has indeed begun to bring the change it promised us, going by the successes recorded in security situation in the country, fight against corruption and even making stealing to now be an act of corruption. If an administration can achieve this much, which its predecessor could not in six years, within just a short period of one year of it’s constitutional life span, it’s worth celebrating for.
No one would want to remember that during the past administration billion of dollars budgeted for security which deterioration was at all time high ended in some personal pockets; which resulted to the death of hundreds and left millions as refugees in various camps in different parts of the North and neighbouring countries. This is why if not for anything, economy nonetheless, you see Northerners celebrating this administration in one year and are supporting it in it most policies is for the peace that has been restored in the region especially the Northeast where the security challenge was at pick.
In the area of fight against corruption however, last year, indices placed Nigeria among the first 10 corrupt countries in the world but now its not even among the first 30 which is a landmark and one would therefore imagine which glorious place will Nigeria be in the next three remaining years. Besides, respect for Nigeria by international community has tremendously improved, thanks to the man of high integrity as president. We only pray, but the future is brighter.
