The president, Mohammadu Buhari of the federal Republic of Nigeria has lamented his pain on the deserved credits he is yet to receive from Nigerians for his political success so far.
He made this revelation on Tuesday in Owerri, Imo state after inaugurating some projects executed by Governor Hope Uzodinma.

According to his claim, he disclosed that when he assumed office in 2015, many local government areas in Borno and Adamawa states in the North East were controlled by Boko Haram terrorists, but he came and destroyed the dangerous group, Boko Haram.
He further shaded Goodluck Jonathan and his administration for failing to protect the country.
In his words, he said:
“In terms of time and resources, this administration has done extremely well. I have to say it because those who are supposed to say it are not saying it. I don’t know why.”
“To be frank with you, I blame the Nigerian elite for not thinking hard about our country.”
“Between 1999 and 2015 when we came in, I would like people to check the Central Bank and the NNPC (Nigerian National Petroleum Company), the average production was 2.1 million barrels per day. Nigeria was earning at this time 2.1 million times but look at the state of infrastructure, look at the road…look at the railway, it was virtually killed. Power, we are still struggling.”
“But when we came, unfortunately, the militants were unleashed, production went down to half a million bpd.”
“Look at the problem in the North-East, check with anybody from Borno or Adamawa, how many local governments were in the hands of the government and how many were in the hands of Boko Haram? Fraudulent people, whoever they are, are fraudulent! But now, go and ask the hard-working governor of Borno State, a very hard-working governor. The Federal Government is in charge now.“
