President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that the culture of impunity inherited at the inception of his government, two years ago, is receding.

The statement was made in excerpts of a Book entitled: ‘‘Making steady, sustainable progress for Nigeria’s peace and prosperity: a mid-term scorecard on the President Muhammadu Buhari administration’’, authored by the Presidential Media Team.

The book, which will be presented to the public on November 16 in Abuja, was sighted by the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN.

‘Corruption, insecurity and the parlous economy were the challenges inherited at inception.

“They have been addressed and are still being addressed boldly and honestly.

“Steadily the culture of impunity is receding; the affront of terrorists overrunning security troops and encroaching on our territorial integrity has been reversed.

“The task of revamping the economy remains work-in-progress,’’ President Buhari wrote in the foreword of the 348-book, which is a compendium of notable achievements of his administration since May 29, 2015.

The publication was edited by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President, Media and Publicity; Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President, Media and Publicity, and Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant to the President, Media and Publicity, (Office of the Vice President).

The Buhari Media Support Group (BMSG) contributed to the publication.

The book, authored by the Presidential Media Team, is a documentation of the notable achievements of the Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration since it was inaugurated on May 29, 2015.

President Buhari wrote the foreword of the 348-page book, containing milestones of all the federal ministries and some select departments and agencies, in the last two years.

The Buhari Media Support Group also contributed to the compendium rich with text and visuals.

The book will be reviewed by Tony Momoh while APC national leader, Bola Tinubu, is the keynote speaker/book presenter.

    You have only succeeded in drowning out the old forms of corruption (which Goodluck Jonathan would have had the same success if he continued). It is the new form that we must worry about and that is not being tackled (and I suspect that it is by design so when the next crisis comes, Sharia will be sold as the solution).

    Beyond being seen as doing something and justifying the budget approval for this “Project”, this is an empty PR outing. The culture of impunity is deepened and made even more determined. Terrorism is no longer localized, but now widely spread. Under this administration, Fulani Herdsmen were upgraded to the 4th worst terrorist group in the world. Corruption is deepened (under GEJ it was wide) and PMB is propagating it with impunity. The economy is still in shamble; life is worse on a daily basis. This is exercise borrowed robe.
