Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the House of Representatives has insisted that the Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress administration has performed well despite the numerous challenges it met on ground.
The speaker said this at an interactive session with newspaper editors in Abuja on Tuesday.
He urged critics of the government to put into context what the administration met when it assumed office in 2015.
“What was it that we met on ground?” he said. “A lot has been achieved.”
“This government has ensured that the terrorists are not holding any measure of land,” he said.
NAIJ.com recalls that many Nigerians see the defeat of the insurgents as one of the key achievements of the administration since its inception.
The speaker also insisted that the government is winning the corruption war because sanity is gradually returning to the system.
“We are beginning to have results on corruption. Sanity is returning,” he said.
According to Premium Times, Mr Dogara also said that though it was impossible to completely eradicate corruption, the Buhari administration is gradually reducing their tempo.

The speaker while reacting to the recent refusal of the Senate to confirm Ibrahim Magu, a nominee of the presidency for the position of EFCC chair, said the two arms of government are not expected to have a smooth ride at all times.
“It was never anticipated for the legislature and executive to work harmoniously on a continuous basis” he said. “For you to have innovation and progress, people must be free to disagree.”
