‘I believe this recession will not last long’ – President Buhari

President Buhari says he believes that the current economic recession
will not last. Delivering his Independence day celebration speech, he
said

“I know that uppermost in your minds today is the economic crisis. The
recession for many individuals and families is real. For some It means
not being able to pay school fees, for others it’s not being able to
afford the high cost of food (rice and millet) or

the high cost of local or international travel, and
for many of our young people the recession means joblessness, sometimes
after graduating from university or polytechnic. I know how difficult
things are, and how rough business is. All my adult life I have always
earned a salary and I know what it is like when your salary simply is
not enough. In every part of our nation people are making incredible
sacrifices. But let me say to all Nigerians today, I ran for office four
times to make the point that we can rule this nation with honesty and
transparency, that we can stop the stealing of Nigeria’s resources so
that the resources could be used to provide jobs for our young people,
security, infrastructure for commerce, education and healthcare. I ran
for office because I know that good government is the only way to ensure
prosperity and abundance for all. I remain resolutely committed to this
objective. I believe that this recession will not last. Temporary
problems should not blind or divert us from the corrective course this
government has charted for our nation. We have identified the country’s
salient problems and we are working hard at lasting solutions. To re-cap
what I have been saying since the inception of this administration, our
problems are security, corruption and the economy, especially
unemployment and the alarming level of poverty”he said
