President Muhammadu Buhari has less than two years to conclude his second tenure as the president of Nigeria. His administration has been facing a lot of criticism since 2015 when he started his tenure as a democratically elected president. Amidst the criticism, he remained focused on achieving some of the national developmental goals mentioned in his campaign promises. He kick-started the 1st batch of the N-Power program in the year 2016 with 200,000 beneficiaries, each of whom earned a monthly stipend of ₦30,000.

Most of the Batch A beneficiaries enjoyed the freedom of choosing their preferred communication devices with educative e-books pre-installed in them and free 750 megabytes of data to access the internet every month. Batch B beneficiaries were 300,000 and they equally earned ₦30,000 but were not given communication devices due to the economic situation of the country. Batches A and B were disengaged in 2020 and even though the economic situation of the country has not improved yet, Batch C of the N-Power program has been engaged in August 2021. It is interesting to know that those who benefited from the program since its inception in 2016 applied on the internet based on merit without any politician's influence and the program has been very transparent. Apart from N-Power, this administration implemented the national minimum wage of ₦30,000. PMB provided loans to farmers through the Bank of Industry among other achievements. Irrespective of the tribe and political party of the incoming president, it is hoped that he would not abandon these projects.
