President Muhammadu Buhari says the present administration is on the right track to improve the image of the country by entrenching accountability and probity in governance.
A statement by the President Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu on Tuesday noted that Buhari said this in Dakar, Senegal, while speaking at a meeting with a group of Nigerians in the Diaspora, on the sidelines of the 3rd Dakar International Forum on Peace and Security in Africa.
Buhari called on the Nigerian elite to stop insisting that things should be done the ‘old way’, which impoverished the nation.
President Buhari told the 11-man Nigerian delegation based in Senegal and Cote D’ Ivoire, that the last 16 years of poor handling of the nation’s resources and infrastructure had continued to impact negatively on the country.
“This administration is pleased we won the election, we are pleased Nigerians are cooperating with us.But the problems are so enormous that we need the cooperation of Nigerians, particularly the elite.
“They (elite) should reflect on the condition of the country, and stop making expensive demands because things cannot be done the old way,’’ he said.
On the welfare of Nigerians in the Diaspora, President Buhari assured them that the Federal Government would continue to promote good neighbourliness and improve the negative perception about Nigerians abroad.
