I Tackled Insecurity, Unemployment - Ex-President Buhari Boasts
Former President Muhammadu Buhari has boasted about his success in combating insecurity, unemployment, and ensuring investment.
Nigerians, according to Buhari, can now see a difference in these areas compared to when he was in office.
The former President claimed that his administration's success in combating insecurity led to increased investment in Nigeria.
He said this in an interview with the Nigeria Television Authority, which was published on the NTA's X page.
In comparison to the administrations he took over from, the former president insisted that his administration reduced insecurity and boosted the economy.
Asked if he accomplished his objectives, Buhari said: “Not quite, but I would like Nigerians to reflect on the condition of Boko Haram before we came in and also the economy.
"So security, economy, and fighting corruption were the objectives I set before the government I led. I hope Nigerians have been following it and saw the difference.
“I know the government I led was lucky to get the governor of Borno State, he is young and incorruptible. We were lucky to have him in charge of the Northeast where Boko Haram was operating.
“I achieved my goal in security, economy, employment, and because we succeeded in insecurity, Nigerians developed confidence in their country and they invested more and people from outside came and invested.”
