2 Things Buhari Can Add To His Achievements That Will Forever Keep Him Above GEJ's Administration

It is credited to the national chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu that the assurance he gave to Nigerians during President Buhari's campaign in 2015 has become a reality. It could be recalled that Bola Tinubu had assured Nigerians that Buhari was the only solution to the security and economic challenges facing the country at that time. This assurance won the hearts of Nigerians and it contributed to the victory of President Buhari in taking over power from Former President Goodluck Jonathan (GEJ) in 2015.

Pragmatically speaking, President Buhari has worked so hard to proffer solutions to Nigeria's security challenges as it is on record that about 8000 Boko Haram terrorists surrendered to the Army during his regime. In the same vein, it is also recallable that in 2015, GEJ's administration had faced lots of economic and security challenges via the activities of Boko Haram in various locations of the country. However, it is credited to Buhari that he made a great difference in his fight against the terrorist group.

However, taking a critical comparison of the economic state of the country at the time of GEJ and the economic state of the country at this present time, here are two things Buhari can add to his achievements that will forever keep him above GEJ's administration.


In 2015, it was reported that the equivalence of a dollar to naira was 197.88 NGN and this was at the time of former president GEJ. Contrary to this, 2021 dollar exchange rate under the administration of president Buhari is reported to be about 410.82 NGN per dollar. From this comparison, if President Buhari will make the current dollar exchange rate lower than that of 2015, he will definitely remain above GEJ's administration forever.


Past records accurately have it that the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the country in 2015 was $492, 437 million, while on the other hand, the current GDP of Nigeria in 2021 is estimated to about $440 billion which is low compared to the records in 2015. From this viewpoint, improving 2021 GDP above $492, 437 million will add to Buhari's achievements and that will forever keep him above GEJ's administration.
