President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday promised that he will no longer complain about the problems his administration met at its inception.
According to him, lamenting Nigeria’s history of corruption and mismanagement of resources has not helped his administration much.
The President spoke during his interaction with Nigerians at Kraków Holiday Inn, Poland, an event put together by Abike Dabiri, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, as part of his engagements on the sidelines of the global summit on Climate Change taking place in Poland.
Instead of complaining, Mr Buhari said, he will face the challenges head on.
His words: “We inherited so many problems. Actually, l have said l will not complain because l asked for it. I tried to become President three times and l lost , but l was lucky the fourth time, l became one, so l can’t complain”
“Who asked me to do it again? Three times l ended up in the Supreme Court. The third time, l said, ‘God dey’ and the fourth time, God and technology, using the Permanent Voters Card and the Card Readers, they couldn’t rig the elections; so l won.”
Buhari also expressed delight at the resilience of Nigerians in Poland, which he said had helped them maintain good relationship with their host communities despite such cases of hostilities and racial discrimination.
The President had earlier been briefed about challenges Nigerians face in Poland as well as their relative good behavior despite the hostility and discriminations by some of their hosts.
