The president disclosed this during his nationwide broadcast on New Year day, Friday, January 1, 2021, highlighting Security, Economy and Anti-Corruption as some of the key priority areas the administration would concentrate its attention and strengths on.
On security, the president said that his administration would be, “Re-energizing and reorganizing the security apparatus and personnel of the armed forces and the police with a view to enhance their capacity to engage, push back and dismantle the operations of both internal and external extremist and criminal groups waging war against our communities in some parts of the country”.
On the economy, Buhari said, “Our focus is on revamping the economy through the national economic diversification agenda that supports the primary goal of national food self-sufficiency. This has helped reduce the growing food related inflationary figures and have in considerable measure positively impacted our food security status during the long months of the pandemic lock down”.
He added that the administration was currently rebuilding the country’s infrastructural base reforming the power sector and undertaking a series of special interventions designed to boost job creation and support the entrepreneurial drive of our youths.
On the war against corruption, the president said, “on the anti-corruption drive of our administration, we have recorded substantial gains so far and this year, we are committed to continuing along the path of eradicating corruption, through collaboration with all the arms of Government to effectively prosecute this fight”.
