President Muhammadu Buhari has said his administration will continue to implement policies that will make Nigeria’s economy, which is already looking good and will soon be better.
The president stated this during an audience with the new Ambassador of the Kingdom of Denmark to Nigeria, Mr Jesper Kamp, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, yesterday.
Buhari also said Nigeria welcomes further strengthening of relations with other countries, especially in the areas of agriculture and trade.
The president also told the Danish ambassador he was pleased that relations between Nigeria and Denmark had remained strong.
He, however, noted that in the economic sphere, there is some more work to do.
‘‘The Nigerian economy is looking good and we look forward to making it better,’’ the President told the Danish ambassador after receiving his Letter of Credence.
Buhari also received Letters of Credence from retired Maj.- Gen. Waqar Kingravi, the new High Commissioner of Pakistan to Nigeria, Mr Babacar Ndiaye, the new Ambassador of Senegal to
Nigeria and Mr Vyacheslav Beskosky, the new Ambassador of Belarus to Nigeria.
He told the envoys that Nigeria valued the existing cordial and friendly relations with their countries.
The president described the long-standing military cooperation between Nigeria and Pakistan as very commendable and beneficial to both countries.
Elsewhere, on Wednesday evening, in Abuja, his wife, Aisha, told artistes that Nigeria is now enjoying improved governance.
She specifically said artistes should partly take credit for the feat because of their support for the president and his administration.
The First Lady said this in a statement issued by her spokesman, Suleiman Haruna, during presentation of “Sakamakon Chanji,” a song in support of Buhari by Northern Nigeria Music Artistes.
“I can safely say that you all have done the needful and, therefore, you are partly to take credit for the improved governance that Nigeria is enjoying today,” she reportedly said.
