President Muhammadu Buhari says only those with integrity and interest of Nigeria will be considered in the next cabinet.
He also promised to appoint more women and youth during his second tenure, acknowledging the “significant role” they played toward his re-election.
He said his administration would not disappoint them. Buhari spoke at a dinner the All Progressives Congress (APC) women and youth organised to celebrate his re-election, on Saturday.
He said more fertilizers were being made available to Nigerian farmers at a lower rate, adding that this has resulted in an increase in agricultural production and reduction in food importation.
Buhari also called on Nigerian youth to embrace agriculture to ensure more food sufficiency and food export.
He again faulted the 16-year rule of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which he said, “wasted the nation’s resources”.
According to him, the country witnessed “rampant infrastructure decay” in spite of the huge resources earned during the period.
