While speaking to Nigerians living in Dakar, Senegal, President Buhari asked Nigerians, especially the elites to stop making expensive demands from his administration.
According to a statement by special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, President Buhari called on the Nigerian elite to stop insisting that things should be done the ‘old way’, which impoverished the nation.
He said his administration is on the right track to improve the image of the country by entrenching accountability and probity in governance. President Buhari said that the last 16 years of poor handling of the nation’s resources and infrastructure have 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.
