“Fellow citizens,
“Welcome to the beginning of a New Year of the continuation
of CHANGE in our beloved nation.
“I am aware that Nigerians have experienced a number of
significant hardships over the past months. Living in the State House has not
alienated me from your daily sufferings. I am aware of the lengthy queues at
fuel stations and of the difficulties businesses have faced in acquiring
foreign exchange. These challenges are only temporary; we are working to make
things better. Continue below,,,

“When I presented myself to you as a presidential candidate
and asked you to vote for me, I wanted to be a leader who keeps his promises. I
wanted to be a leader who restores the people’s hope in those elected to serve
them. I wanted to be a leader who initiates positive and enduring CHANGE.
“I am still totally committed to being that kind of leader.
Unforeseen circumstances and other distractions notwithstanding, I shall still
do my utmost best to keep every promise I made to Nigerians during my election
campaign.
“In the past seven months since our inauguration on May 29,
2015, my administration has focused on laying the right foundation for the
CHANGE you voted for during our historic presidential election.
“Nigerians will in due course begin to enjoy the fruits of
all our ongoing work. The effective and efficient implementation of our 2016
budget proposals will address many of the socio-economic issues that are of
current concern to our people.
“One area in which Nigerians, especially those in the
northeast, have already begun to experience major CHANGE is in the war on
terror.
“I commend our Armed Forces for significantly curtailing the
insurgency which has ravaged the northeast of Nigeria over the past few years.
“However, there is still a lot of work to be done in the
area of security.
“Our Armed Forces will maintain, consolidate and build on
their successes in the war against Boko Haram and violent extremism.
This government will not consider the matter concluded until
the terrorists have been completely routed and normalcy restored to all parts
of the country that have been adversely affected by the Boko Haram insurgency.
“Our crackdown on corruption will continue to be vigorously
undertaken. I urge the courts to support our efforts and help in the recovery
of stolen funds by speedily concluding trials and showing that impunity no
longer has a place in our country.
“There is much work to do in other areas as well and I have
charged all my ministers and other appointees to ensure that Nigerians
experience positive changes in their lives in 2016.
“We must reduce our country’s reliance on oil. We must
diversify our economy. And we must do all we can to promote job creation.
Our challenges are many but our determination to succeed is
strong and unshaken.”
