Former Commonwealth Secretary General, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has to work with all regions of the country in order to achieve real change in 2016.
Anyaoku made this remark in a signed statement made available to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), yesterday, in Abuja.
He expressed hope that insecurity and corruption that has been hindering the development of the country would finally be curbed.
He said “The infrastructural deficit in power supply, transportation including roads, education and health will receive attention.
“Youth unemployment together with the widespread poverty of the masses will be productively addressed.”
He noted that 2015 was an historic year in the development of the nation’s democracy especially the events that occurred during and after the 2015 General Elections.
He said: “But thanks to the initiative by some elder-statesmen which led to signing of the Abuja Accord of violence-free campaigns by the 14 presidential candidates and their political parties.
“The elections were peaceful which enabled the country to progress its evolving democracy by having for the first time a peaceful change of government from a ruling to an opposition party.”
He also admonished every Nigerian government to collaborate in order to achieve these hopes.
