Buhari blames elite for state of the nation

 President Muhammadu Buhari said on Saturday that the elite are responsible for what Nigeria is and what it can become.

The Nation

He also declared the fast growing young and dynamic population that feels alienated and disempowered as a threat to national stability.

The President, who stated these at the graduation ceremony of 78 participants of the Senior Executive Course 42 of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) on Saturday, said it was based on this premise that his administration set its sights on lifting 100 million people out of poverty over the next decade.

He said the country has come a long way from the era in which the government was the principal actor in the economy, adding that the administration has come to recognise that prosperity and growth lie in unleashing the Nigerian genius for enterprise and industry that is domiciled in her private sector.
