An All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Alhaji Abubakar Yabo, on Saturday in Sokoto expressed optimism that President Muhammadu Buhari would implement populist programmes and policies.
Yabo said such programmes would redirect the energies of the youths for national development and address social vices.
Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Yabo noted that the intervention of Buhari on the political scene would soon put an end to mass unemployment, kidnapping, insurgency, armed robbery and other crimes.
“Buhari has the political will to make things better for Nigerians,’’ he said.
“The people-oriented programmes that will soon be unfolded by the president has become necessary as the country has a large percentage of unemployed youths.’’
Yabo said that the potential of the nation’s future leaders should be harnessed for the development of democracy and the economy.
Speaking further, he said “Prayers and support of Nigerians will ensure peaceful implementation of the government programmes at all levels.
