6 Wonderful Things President Muhammadu Buhari has Done for Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari became the president of Nigeria when he was voted in by Nigerians in 2015. He is the fourth president in Nigeria since she became a democratic nation in 1999.

Nigeria though has seen little or no improvement since she became a democratic nation. Many failed promises from corrupt leaders has been the case. Poverty, unemployment and insecurity has also been a big issue. But since President Muhammadu Buhari took over, drastic changes have taken place. What are those changes? Let's look at 6 wonderful things President Muhammadu Buhari has done for Nigeria.

1. Job Creation

Unemployment has been a big issue in Nigeria for a long time. Graduates who spent years in the university and even got good grades were left roaming the streets in previous governments. But since President Muhammadu Buhari came into power, so many jobs have been created and unemployment has reduced drastically. The problem of unemployment is still there but it is being eliminated gradually. A recent example is the N-Power program which aims at employing millions of Nigerian youths.

2. Better Power-Supply

Power-supply has been a very big problem that has plagued Nigerians for years. But since President Muhammadu Buhari came into power, power-supply has improved. There is still a lot of work to be done in this regard but since we know Rome was'nt built in a day, we have hope in the president. President Muhammadu Buhari's government has added more megawatts of electricity into the country than any other government.

3. Revived the Economy

The last time Nigeria suffered recession was 2016 when President Muhammadu Buhari was in power. But the president inherited a very weak economy that was on the brink of collapsing. It is still suprising how the president skillfully revived the Nigerian economy and now it is growing stronger. He has also looked inwards on how to better strengthen the economy. He recently banned importation of major goods and food products in Nigeria thereby giving incentives to farmers and manufacturers in the country.

4. Tackled Corruption

Nigeria was known to be one of the most corrupt countries in the world. But immediately President Muhammadu Buhari stepped into power, he set up an anti-corruption team that started rooting out corrupt government officials. Many were caught and dealt with by the law. Even internet fraudsters were not spared as the president promised to eradicate them.

5. Tackled Insecurity

Insecurity has always been a problem in Nigeria. The terrorist group, Boko-Haram was one of the major cause of insecurity in the country. Since the president stepped into power, he has been able to almost immobilise them. Now they are scanty in number and are struggling for survival. The truth is the president has not totally eradicated insecurity. But which other country in the world has? Even the great United States still has a lot of crime rate and racism in it. So we give thanks to the president for helping reduced the insecurity problem in the country.

6. Tackled Covid-19 Pandemic Brilliantly

The Covid-19 pandemic has ravaged the world. Many countries have greatly suffered from it and the United States has the highest number of deaths and cases in the world. But the Nigerian government did it's best to curb the pandemic before it went out of hand. From the first reported case earlier in the year, the government has done it's best to make sure Nigerians were safe. They locked down the country and also banned travel on time.

Kudos to President Muhammadu Buhari for his achievements. There would always be more to do but the president has truly tried in his tenure. We can only hope the next government to come will continue in his footsteps.
