Buhari has changed Nige­ria’s global im­age - Sen­a­tor Ibrahim

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Terkula Igidi

Sen­a­tor Abu Ibrahim rep­re­sent­ing Katsina South on the plat­form of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) has said that Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari has changed the global im­age of Nige­ria from neg­a­tive to pos­i­tive within four months of ascending the pres­i­dency.

The Sen­a­tor, who made this as­ser­tion to news­men in Abuja, said gone were the days when ev­ery Nige­rian was stereo­typed and den­i­grated abroad as cor­rupt and fraud­u­lent.

He added that the Buhari ad­min­is­tra­tion had ush­ered in a new era both at home and on the global stage.

He said Pres­i­dent Buhari’s firm stand against cor­rup­tion had shown the whole world that in­deed not all Nige­ri­ans were cor­rupt and crim­i­nal minded.

He said the suc­cesses recorded in the power sec­tor, the chang­ing tide against Boko Haram in­sur­gency, the bailout to state gov­ern­ments and the repo­si­tion­ing of the fed­eral civil ser­vice for ef­fec­tive de­liv­ery were point­ers to the fact that a se­ri­ous per­son was at the helm of af­fairs.
