An All Progressives Congress chieftain, Boroffice has given President Buhari a pass mark in his first term in office.
The Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has been praised by the Chairman, Senate Committee on Science and Technology, Sen. Ajayi Boroffice for its excellency in the ongoing anti-corruption war and silencing insurgency in the north east.
The senator made the remark on Friday in an interview with newsmen in Abuja. Boroffice stated that despite the criticism by the previous administration, the Buhari – led government deserves the nation’s commendation and not condemnation.
“Judging from the challenges this administration incurred, particularly in terms of insecurity and economic meltdown, I score it 90 per cent.
“Of course it is not easy to fight insurgency within and outside your border. Insurgency in the North East is a serious problem.
“No nation can stabilise with that level of insecurity but the Federal Government is doing its best trying to eliminate them and helping the IDPs to relocate.
“We also have the men in the East and the Avengers in the South-South. So it is a very serious issue.
“It is just like engaging in a civil war yet we have relative peace and we are making progress. I think, personally, the Federal Government has done well,’’ he said.
The senator, however plead with Nigerians to exercise patience with the Federal Government while it is working to stabilise the economy, stating that with the effort being made, Nigerians’ condition of living would soon improve.
“When PDP was in power, oil was selling for 110 dollars per barrel. By the time the APC government took over, it came down to about 40, 45 dollars per barrel.
“Not only that, we were producing 2.1 million barrels of crude oil per day and because of the activities of the Avengers, it crashed to less than that.
“With that, the revenue, which accrued to Federal Government from oil which constitutes about 90 per cent of our Internally Generated Revenue, crashed and it affected the programmes of government. Nevertheless this government has tried.
“Huge amount of money has been committed to infrastructure development, the rail, the road, power is becoming more and more stable and the N-Power programme which is touching many lives currently,’’ he said.
