The President said the mandate will be steadily followed to improve livelihoods as he marks the first year anniversary of his second term in office.

Buhari recalled that he won the 2019 election with a distance of nearly four million votes or 15 per cent of the total votes cast over his closest opponent.

“It was then – and is today – a mandate for change,” Buhari stated.

According to Buhari, for many years people of the country have yearned for something different: less of the corruption and immoral greed of those who once governed; more decency in public life and fairness, and a chance to succeed.

He noted that Nigerians also yearned for improved security and end to terrorist bombings and for long-delayed infrastructure.
