Buhari’s government on right track – Peace Corps boss, Akoh [Nigerian News]

The National Commandant, Peace Corps of Nigeria, Mr Dickson Akoh has said that the corps is of the strongest conviction that President Buhari’s administration is on the right track.

He also expressed worry at the level of criticisms against the administration.

Speaking in Abuja at the End of Year Ceremony of the Corps tagged: “Rural Sustainability and Nation Building: The Roles of Social Organisations”, Akoh called on Nigerians to allow President Buhari another term to finalise major developmental projects which he had begun.

He said: “We are of the strongest belief that the federal government under President Muhammadu Buhari is doing the right thing in the fight against corruption, insurgency and the revamping of the economy.

“If you have been in leadership position in the past or currently in leadership, you will agree with me that change, ideal revolution and sustainable development cannot be achieved overnight.

“Genuine changes worldwide, though painful and difficult to achieve, can only be attained through collective prayers, hardwork, deliberate commitment and high level of patriotism,” he said.

Akoh said that for the much needed even-development to take place in the country, it was important to re-examine the near absence of social infrastructures in the rural areas.

He urged the government and well meaning Nigerians to make concerted effort towards the provision of basic infrastructures in the grassroots to reduce the challenges of rural-urban migration.

“For rural sustainability to be guaranteed, not only the government but social organisations and philanthropic individuals should endeavor to assist in this regard,” he said.

Akoh said pledged the Corps’ total commitment to promoting post conflict resolution, confidence-building and institutional cooperation with all government security agencies in the interest of nation building
