“The Next Four Years Will Be Tough” - Presidency Explains Buhari's Statement To Nigerians 1

Secretary to the Government of Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, said that the tough decisions President Muhammadu Buhari will take during his second term in office will be in the interest of Nigeria.

During an interview with newsmen in Yola, Boss Mustapha explained President Buhari’s recent statement that his second term would be tough. He said:

“When we came to power in 2015 about 27 states couldn’t pay salaries; we had to take tough decisions like giving them bail-out and Paris Club refund. These are tough decisions.”

He also identified the ban on rice and fertilizer importation as one of the tough decisions taken by the government and which yielded positive results by boosting local production, among other things. He added:

“By such tough decisions we are able to raise the number of rice farmers from four million to 12 million and we are about 98 percent self-sufficient in rice.

“Due to the establishment of many fertilizer blending plants after we banned the importation of fertilizer, the product is now available and the price is going down.”

The SGF also described the President as a good man, who had the trust of ordinary Nigerians and would like to see improvement in their lives, while the nation moved to the next level.
