PROTOCOL,

I wish to start my remarks by commending all of you for your excellent conduct in Niger. This has been attested to by both the Nigerien authorities and our Ambassador. I urge you to keep it up.

  1. As you are aware, our government is just coming on board and is still in the process of setting out appropriate modalities on how to actualize its agenda of revamping Nigeria, as contained in the APC manifesto on which basis we were elected. I urge you to exercise some patience as the task of rebuilding Nigeria is indeed an arduous one.
  2. I am sure a number of you might recall that in my speech during the inauguration on 29th May, 2015, I highlighted the major thrust of my administration which would revolve around certain areas we believe would take our country out of the current condition to accelerated development. These include the challenges of insecurity, near economic collapse, pervasive corruption and power shortages etc. I want to reassure that we are going to tackle these challenges head on. Nigerians will not regret that they have entrusted national responsibility to us. We must not succumb to hopelessness and defeatism. We can fix our problems.
  3. However, daunting as the task to surmount these challenges may be,theyare by no means insurmountable. There is now a national consensus that our chosen route to national development is democracy. To achieve our objectives we must consciously work to improve the democratic system.

I want to reassure that my government would be resolute in ensuring that our country’s name is raised higher and we need all Nigerians, including those in the Diaspora to partner with us.

  1. I want to conclude by urging you to continue to remain law-abiding and to continue to be good ambassadors of the country as we embark on the journey of rebirth, development, evolution and integration.
  2. I thank you.
