President Muhammadu Buhari has challenged ministers inaugurated today to build on the achievements recorded by his administration in the last four years.
In a speech at the ceremony in Abuja, Buhari said, “We have a challenge to build a country where everyone can maximize his or her potential. We must build a country where opportunities abound for everyone. Work has started; we must all get down to action”.
He said that the two-day retreat with the ministers, which held on Monday and Tuesday, had specified the roadmap and focus of government in the next four years, stressing that the priorities would form the base for building a strong Nigeria.
Buhari urged the ministers to strive to improve the economy, fight corruption and create a Nigeria that would engage its 20 million unemployed and unemployable people into productive ventures.
Buhari also emphasized the need for adequate security so that Nigerians could live in peace.
