Written by on October 1, 2022

President Muhammadu Buhari has scored the performance of his government and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) administration high once again.

The President made the statement in his last Independence Day Address earlier today.

According to him, the efforts in re-setting the economy manifested in Nigeria as it exited two economic recessions by the very practical and realistic monetary and fiscal measures to ensure effective public financial management.

President Buhari added that his administration had given the desired priority to the agricultural sector through a series of incentives to micro, small and medium-scale enterprises that resulted in creating millions of jobs.

He also pledged to improve the; economy, tackle corruption and fight insecurity with assurance to continue on this path until our efforts yield the desired results.

President Muhammadu Buhari has again called on the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to return to the classroom while assuring them to deal with their contending issues within the limits of the scarce resources available.

The president, who reiterated the call in a nationwide broadcast today in Abuja, said he was pained by the recurring disruption to the nation’s tertiary education system.

According to him, the Federal Government will continue to mobilise resources, both internationally and nationally, towards funding education to ensure that citizens are well educated and skilled in various vocations.

It is recalled that ASUU has been on strike since the 14th of February 2022 over inadequate funding for university education in Nigeria among other demands.
