Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN has described as commendable the performance of President Muhammadu Buhari within the 3-Point agenda of economic rejuvenation, fighting insecurity and corruption.
Speaking with Government House Reporters on the 75th Birthday of President Buhari, the governor said the international community now doff hats for President Buhari in view of his uncompromising stance on corruption and unrelenting commitment to the development of the country across sectors.
He described him as an enigma that has brought a lot of confidence and pride into the nation, saying Nigerians have every cause to celebrate him for restoring the nation’s lost dignity and for transforming the country.
“Today, Nigeria has its own recognition and commands respect in the comity of nations because of the type of President we have.
“The world allover have enormous confidence in Nigeria because of his personality. He has pursued and delivered on the 3-point agenda of his administration with every fibre he has in him.
“Mr President has also rescued the nation from its state of insecurity, by reducing the activities of the dreaded Boko haram insurgency to the barest minimum.
“Today, Boko haram does not control any local government, unlike before when they almost take over a whole state”, he said.
Arakunrin Akeredolu added that the President has also excelled in the area of fighting corruption which he noted has eaten deep into the fabric of the nation, saying no one has stood up against the scourge as much as President Buhari has done.
“We must give him kudos and that has been one of the reasons why Nigeria has earned more respect from the outside world.
“He has charted a new course for us by fighting corruption both at the low and high places.
“These are some of the feats that stand him out as President of this country which no other President has done.
“Today being his 75th birthday, it’s no doubt, a day of celebration for all Nigerians, we are all proud of him and I want to wish him a happy birthday”, he concluded.
