Buhari Reveals When “Change” Will Come
General Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria’s President-elect, has revealed when Nigerians should expect the change that his administration promised while it was campaigning for the seat of the president.
In an exclusive interview with TVC news, Buhari said Nigerians should expect change from June 1 this year, noting that his administration and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) will live up to its manifesto commitment, which he said was carefully put together.
Buhari, who is expected to be sworn in as Nigerian President on May 29, said this in an exclusive interview which was published on the TVC’s Youtube channel on April Wednesday, April 22, 2015.
The former military ruler also stated that his administration will parade technocrats and people of integrity, noting that people of questionable characters will not be allowed in APC cabinet.
While campaigning Buhari made many promises which some analysts predict might be difficult to achieve. The retired general promised to publicly declare his assets and liabilities and encourage his political appointees to also publicly declare their assets and liabilities.
He promised to review and implement audit recommendations by Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI).
