For the umpteenth time, President Mohammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that his government would deliver the change that his administration promised during the 2015 polls.
He said in Lagos that he feels the pains Nigerians are currently facing, saying that the people had not entered one chance by voting for him.
He He spoke through the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed when he (Buhari) was presented with the personality of the year award alongside former President Goodluck Jonathan by Vanguard Newspapers in Lagos.
He said, “We understand that Nigerians have started questioning whether this indeed is the change they voted for, while some have even gone as far as saying that by voting for our party, Nigerians have entered one chance.
“Well, I can tell Nigerians that our change agenda is real, and that indeed, they will get the change they voted for. Nigerians have not entered One Chance, because the One Chance drivers and their conductors have been driven out of town.
“We want our compatriots to realize that 16 years of rot cannot be cleaned up overnight. It is much easier to destroy than to build. But we are determined to rebuild our country and to make life more abundant for our people.
“Change is a process, and that process has begun. We commend Nigerians for their perseverance. We urge them not to lose their confidence in the ability of this Administration to bring about the much-needed change”, he added.
