President Muhammadu Buhari —
My compatriots, it is one year today since our administration came into office. It has been a year of triumph, consolidation, pains and achievements.
By age, instinct and experience, my preference is to look forward, to prepare for the challenges that lie ahead and rededicate the administration to the task of fixing Nigeria. But I believe we can also learn from the obstacles we have overcome and the progress we made thus far, to help strengthen the plans that we have in place to put Nigeria back on the path of progress.
