We've been spending good time clearing Jonathan's mess - Osinbajo

The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo has said that the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration inaugurated on May 29, 2015 spent much of its first year in office in 2016, clearing the inherited “mess” from the government of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Osinbajo also said that though the administration has recorded a milestone in its efforts to reposition Nigeria, it should be noted that overnight solutions to the numerous challenges of the country were not possible.

The Acting President’s positions were stated in his message to mark the second anniversary of the administration on Monday.

Enumerating most of the gains achieved so far, Osinbajo said that the government has delivered on its promise of restoring the hitherto lost country’s security especially in the North East where the dreaded Boko haram insurgents held sway before the advent of the administration.

He also stated that the government was on course in the fight against corruption, revealing the possibility of creating special courts for corruption cases.

The Acting President also stated that the government rolled out different programmes and policies to revitalise the economy and create more jobs for the teeming unemployed graduates. According to him, these included the Social Investment Programmes, the ease of doing business, the Executive Orders he signed recently amongst others.

Osinbajo who also prayed for the quick recovery of President Buhari assured Nigerians of a better future, saying that the administration would not exclude any part of the country in its developmental strides.
