According to Buhari, these policies have become legacy programs because they have been well-received by the people and have had a positive impact on the country. He cited the ban on the importation of foreign rice as an example of such a policy.
President Muhammadu Buhari has emphasized that his administration’s policies were intentionally designed to promote the development of Nigeria. He made this assertion during the inauguration of a new Customs Headquarters in Abuja, which was constructed at a cost of N19.6 billion.
“I deliberately closed the borders. I said it is either you eat what you grow or you grow what you eat and later Nigerians appreciated it,” he said.
On corruption, Buhari said he had nothing to hide, adding that, “those who are following Nigerian leaders to condemn them for misappropriation and misbehaviour will have a problem with me.”
On the relationship with neighbouring African countries, the president said there was a need to maintain a cordial relationship with them.
“When I became the President, my first visit was to Niger, Chad and Cameroon because if you do not secure their confidence, you will be in trouble.’’
The President’s comments suggest that his administration is committed to implementing policies that are in the best interest of Nigeria and its citizens. This is a positive development, as it indicates that the government is focused on promoting economic growth and improving the lives of its people.
