President Muhammadu Buhari has said those accusing him of ‘double standards’ are being unfair to him.

Speaking in an interview with NTA on Friday, the President debunked insinuations that those saying that he is sparing bandits and terrorists in Nigeria are being unfair.

According to him, he is also treating bandits and insurgents in the language they understand.

He stated that he does not pamper bandits in the North and clamp down on insurrectionists in the South-East.

Speaking further, Buhari stated that his administration has not performed badly.

He said: “Well, I want Nigerians to be fair to this administration.

“They should reflect seriously on the time we came in especially as far as the North East and the South-South is concerned.

“Where we are now, resources, how much we are producing. The previous administration before me was producing 2.1 million per day at 100 American dollars per barrel.

“When we came in, Militants in the South-South were unleashed on this administration and production went down to half a million barrels per day and then in the market, oil price collapsed.

“I will like Nigerians to reflect on these in terms of resources in time and I believe that we have not done very badly.”

Buhari further promised to hand over a secured Nigeria in 2023.

“I will like to hand over a secured, confident and prosperous Nigeria to whoever succeeds me,” he said.

“This is very important because there are people (if not in Nigeria but outside) that are watching the development of developing countries.”
