President Muhammadu Buhari, during the traditional Christmas Day homage at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, said that his administration would focus on the provision of infrastructure, especially roads, power, and railway transport.
President Buhari stated this while receiving residents of the Federal Capital Territory, led by Muhammad Bello. He added that he will uphold the 1999 Constitution (as amended) in pursuing the policies of his regime.
He further stated that "This administration sincerely believes that if you get infrastructure right, most Nigerians will mind their own business. They may not even care who is in government."
However, if the contrary is the case, the government will not enjoy the support of the people.
The president thanked Nigerians for voting him into office twice, saying it was proof they sympathised with him.
‘‘When I travelled to all the 36 states before the elections, what I personally observed and the number of Nigerians that turned up in every state to see and listen to me, were more than what anybody can pay or force," he stressed.
He noted that Nigerians understand and sympathise with him.
