The President-elect, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), has pleaded with Nigerians not to expect any miracles from him when he finally takes over leadership of the country on May 29.
He made the plea when the Bauchi State governor-elect, Mohammed Abubakar, led other elected members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, from the state to felicitate with him on his electoral victory.
“We are trying to dampen the high expectations, there is no way we can perform miracles because the damage took 16 years, especially on the economy and unemployment. It will take time for us to put the infrastructure right and help revive the textile industry which employ a lot of people but today, they hardly have employees except those that keep watch over their properties.
“We are betting on Agriculture and mining for immediate employment of Nigerians, so that we can do a detailed study on the other sectors. I told the governor-elect and other elected members to help tell members of their constituencies to exercise some patience when we are sworn-in”, Buhari said.
