President Muhammadu Buhari has noted that he would require a formidable team to implement his programmes ahead.
According to Buhari, there are enormous works that must be done in the next four years hence the need for a formidable team.
“It is exactly a month ago that I was sworn in for a second term in office. The task ahead for the four years will require a formidable team,” Buhari said when he received members of the Buhari Media Organisation at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
The president noted that his government would place a firm foundation for future generations despite plot for some to drag the nation backwards.
“Our government continues to grow in strength and will place a firm foundation for future generations. While there will be those who are determined to drag us back to the bad old days, your visit is timely,” he said.
He further thanked the BMO for an impressive job during his re-election campaign.

“Your efforts have been commendable. I cannot thank you enough for your sacrifices during the first part of our journey.
“We have just come off a rigorous campaign during which I visited all the 36 states of the federation campaigning, seeking the votes of Nigerians and telling them what we have done in the last four years.
“I campaigned on three simple premises not different from those of 2015; to tackle insecurity, promote economic diversification and to fight corruption. Fulfilling these three promises is fundamental to taking Nigeria to the next level.
“I assure you that I am resolute on fulfilling these promises and will leave Nigeria a far better place than when we came.
“It is not an easy job to sell the administration’s services; we are doing unpopular things and facing powerful individuals and taking on vested interests who are accustomed to the corrupt era. But we must do things the right way; if we promised change then we must deliver it. This is regardless of whose interest is touched. There must be a manifest departure from the old order.”
