Nigerians will not regret giving us their mandate - Buhari

During his inaugural speech, President Muhammadu Buhari said Nigerians will not regret giving his administration their mandate. He appreciated the immediate Past President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan for conceding defeat during the election. On Boko Haram, he said this will be tackled head on. He said the group is a group of small fire causing a big fire. He said the Command and Control center of the Nigerian Army will be in Maiduguri Borno state until Boko Haram is defeated.

He said his government will do everything within its power to rescue the Chibok girls. He said the Federal government will commission a study that will determine the origin, sponsors and foreign collaborators of Boko Haram once they have been subdued.


He said nobody belongs to him and he does not belong to anybody. He said unemployment, particularly youth unemployment will be addressed. He said relationship between the state and the Federal government must be clarified to serve Nigeria better. He said states are Independent but the Federal government cannot close its eyes when they go wrong. He said he will operate according to the constitution.

He acknowledged the support of the Labor, Private sector and press and Civil Society Organization. He appealed to the media, particularly the social media to be responsible in the discharge of its service.

He said it is a national shame that a country of over 120 million generates only 4000MW of electricity.

He said his government will revive Agriculture, Mining and provide investments for SMEs. He said asides Boko Haram, kidnapping and other vices will be addressed. He appreciated all those who participated in campaigning for him.
