Opinion: Why President Buhari may be recorded as the best President Nigeria has ever had

As we all know, the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari will be coming to an end in less than two years. Therefore, it is not out of place to rate the performance of President Muhammadu Buhari for the last 6 years he has been in power.

In my opinion, President Muhammadu Buhari may be recorded as the best President Nigeria has ever had, and for the following reasons:

1. Maintaining Nigeria's Sovereignty:

One of the primary responsibilities of every President of Nigeria is to ensure that the territorial integrity and continued existence of the country are not undermined nor compromised.

Bearing this in mind, Muhammadu Buhari has effectively kept at bay, a lot of insecurity challenges that may have rendered Nigeria non-existent.

From attacks carried out by Bokoharam Terrorists to Bandits, and from Nnamdi Kanu's agenda of disintegrating Nigeria, to Sunday Igboho's agitations for a Yoruba nation, Muhammadu Buhari has effectively kept Nigeria together through his decisive efforts.

2. Taking Nigeria out of Recession:

The impact the Muhammadu Buhari administration has made that may make him being recorded as Nigeria's best President is his efforts in taking Nigeria out of recession in 2020. This is despite the economic shutdown the country underwent during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Moreso, the different poverty alleviation and empowerment schemes introduced by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration such as N-Power and TraderMoni, has helped so many individuals, families, and other MSMEs to have a comfortable life, even in a time of global economic meltdown.

3. Success in Combatting Covid-19:

Taking into consideration that the Coronavirus pandemic led to millions of lives being lost in many countries, it is worthy to note that the Muhammadu Buhari administration did a good job in controlling the spread of the pandemic in Nigeria.

As against negative predictions by some analysts, Nigeria ranked 86th country in the world Covid-19 death index, behind the likes of the United States of America, India, South Africa, and Italy.

As much as other past Nigerian Presidents did the best they could, it is safe to say that President Muhammadu Buhari has faced great difficulties and challenges that could have incapacitated his administration, yet, he has been able to deliver the dividends of democracy.

Hence, he may be recorded in the history of Nigeria, as the best President the country has ever had.
