NOI releases more figures indicating fate of Buhari administration

Despite mixed feelings trailing President Muhammadu Buhari’s 100days in office, Nigerians have shown massive support for the President, while lambasting his efforts at job creation.

According to the latest poll result from the NOIPolls conducted in the week of September 7, it revealed that 60% of Nigerians appraised the President’s first 100 days in office positively; rating his general performance so far within this period as “good.”

12% on the other hand think the President has performed “poorly” since his inauguration on May 29, 2015.

The President’s performance was rated as “good” in key areas such as ‘security’ (62%), ‘power’ (61%); ‘fuel availability’ (68%) and ‘anti-corruption’ (48%).

However more than half of Nigerians (54%) interviewed believed that the President has performed ‘poorly’ in terms of ‘job creation’.

Nigerians did not keep mute as they expressed high expectations in job creation and security amongst others, as these factors would drive the sustenance of their positive perception.

39% of Nigerians actually expect to see improvement in ‘job creation’ in the country within the next 6 months with Security, Power, Education and infrastructure.

On the Contrary the former Vice President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC , Isah Tijjani while speaking on the 100 days in office faulted President Muhammadu Buhari’s appointments as lopsided in favour of the Northern part of the country.

Tijjani stated that Nigeria is a project where every section of the country has rights to be represented in the national scheme of things.

    “The fact that people are now being sensitized to be aware that public treasury is not meant for embezzlement, the successes so far recorded in the fight against insurgency and the fact that the nation’s security apparatus appears more serious and committed in the war are positives for this administration.”

Several reports have given a verdict saying Buhari’s administration lacks Economic direction as he is yet to articulate a clear economic political plan after three months in office and has stalled Nigerians, investors and international partners from charting a way forward on economic development.

Conversely, tackling corruption and insecurity is a key area in which the President has maintained tabs on, yet no high profile corruption conviction has been secured.
