The immediate past Minister of National Planning and self-appointed spokesperson of ministers under the Goodluck Jonathan administration, Abubakar Suleiman, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his efforts in the fight against insurgency in the country.
Mr. Suleiman, who gave the commendation Sunday in llorin, the Kwara State capital shortly after the president’s nationwide broadcast to mark Democracy Day and one year of his administration, pointed out that there is now peace in parts of the country that hitherto had recorded mass casualties and displacement due to attacks by the insurgents.
He, however, urged the Buhari administration to consolidate on the achievement recorded so far to engender development in the area.
According to Suleiman, no meaningful development could be attained in an atmosphere of rancour, hatred and acrimony.
He also advised President Buhari to bring his ministers closer to him, to be able to get direct information on issues affecting the country including the feelings and aspirations of Nigerians.
The ex-minister also suggested the inclusion of more economists into the present administration to fast track the country’s economic recovery.
