Buhari praises his administration
President Muhammadu Buhari has on Saturday, June 12, 2021, said his administration has “not done very badly”, since it came in 2015.
Buhari stated this during an interview with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), on Friday.
The president asked Nigerians to be fair to his administration in making judgement, adding that people should consider what was being produced in terms of crude before his administration came into power.
“I want Nigerians to be fair to this administration. They should reflect seriously on the time we came in, especially in the north-east and south-south,” he said.
“Where are we now in terms of resources? How much are we producing? The previous administration before we came was producing 2.1 million per day at 100 American dollars per barrel.
“When we came in, militants in the south-south were unleashed on this administration and production went down to half a million barrels per day, and then in the market, oil price collapsed.
“I will like Nigerians to reflect on these in terms of resources and time, and I believe that we have not done very badly”, he noted.
