A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Prince Tony Momoh, on Wednesday, revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari has done well in the delivery of his electoral promises.
Momoh, a former Minister of Information, gave the assessment in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN.
He said that though there were still some challenges in the country, the President had acquitted himself remarkably well.
Momoh pointed out that those who said Buhari had not done well, were either playing politics, or refused to check the facts.
He disclosed that the President had achieved a lot in the areas in which he anchored his campaign promises, despite the herculean problems he met on ground.
“President Buhari has done well based on the facts available and not sentiments. He has done well in the delivery of his campaign promises, despite the big problems he met on ground.
“For example, let us look at the area of security. Before Buhari came in, the Boko Haram insurgents were operating almost uninhibited, to the extent of seizing territories.
“But for Buhari’s intervention, only God knows what would have happened to the country, because of Boko Haram.
“Also, while some other countries are still wriggling under recession caused by a crash in commodity prices, the country is out, and is even doing well in the area of diversification.
“Even the World Bank has just predicted that the country’s GDP will further grow in 2018, there are also monumental gains in the fight against corruption.
“I reviewed a book recently on the scorecard of the President, and I was pleasantly surprised by some of the revelations about Buhari’s performance”, he said
