President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he has been fair and inclusive with his appointments and policies.
Speaking on Monday in Abuja at a conference organised for youths in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Buhari denied allegations of nepotism and lopsided appointments.
Represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, the president said all the regions have been impacted positively.
He said: “There is no part of the country that has not been impacted positively in the areas of infrastructure, agriculture and economic support initiative based on peculiarities of the regions.
“So far, all the policies, initiatives, projects and even appointments by this administration have been guided by equity and inclusiveness.
“As you are all aware, we are currently dealing with some internal security challenges and I would like to reassure you that as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, no effort will be spared in tackling them.
“As I have repeatedly said in recent weeks, every criminal element that has taken up arms against the peace of the country and its citizens will be brought to book accordingly.
“Never despair, nor relent in our joint task of nation building. Remember, we have no other country but Nigeria.
“It is the responsibility of every one of us to work towards the development and advancement of this country.”
Earlier, APC youth leader, Ismaeel Ahmed, said the conference was organised to “energise” a progressive movement in the country.
Ahmed said the APC should be made a party of mostly young people.
