Nigeria's President, Muhammadu Buhari.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari would focus on fundamental issues such as economic diversification, security, and corruption, amongst others.

Mustapha told source that the government will consolidate on the achievements of its past administration.

He spoke on the sideline of the just concluded Africa Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) Annual Meeting (AAM2019) in Moscow, Russia:

“I do not expect that we are going to deviate from these things. The style of implementation might differ a little bit because of the experiences we have had in the last four years.

“Going to the next level, we are going to concentrate on that, with the desired effect of achieving tangible results in all these areas.

“We can’t continue to be dependent on oil in this present era.”

The SGF said that the government had demonstrated this fact in the area of agriculture in the past administration and would consolidate on it.

He said asides the Anchor Borrower’s scheme, the government planned on looking at other diverse areas such as animal husbandry and the value chain.
