ABUJA – The new Country Director, ActionAid Nigeria, an NGO, Mrs Ojobo Atuluku, on Wednesday urged the President-elect, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, to tackle security, economy and accountability issues.
Atuluku set agenda during a press briefing organised by the organisation in Abuja to bid the outgoing country director farewell.
“The incoming and outgoing government should work out modalities for the release of Chibok girls and other security challenges in the country,’’ she urged.
She also called on Buhari to resolve “the numerous economic challenges’’ affecting the growth of the country despite the fact that Nigeria was the largest economy in Africa.
Besides, Atuluku called on the incoming administration to hold public officials accountable for their actions and inactions.
“In ActionAid we always believe that governance is very central to the eradication of poverty, because it is through governance that the resources of the people are managed.
“Since the resources are kept and managed by government, the way the resources are deployed and how they are judiciously managed determines how well the resources impacted on the life of the people,’’ he said. (NAN)
