Alhaji Abubakar Yabo, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, on Saturday in Sokoto expressed optimism that President Muhammadu Buhari would implement populist programmes and policies.
He said such programmes would redirect the energies of the youths for national development and address social vices.
Yabo said that the intervention of Buhari on the political scene would soon put an end to mass unemployment, kidnapping, insurgency, armed robbery and other crimes.
“Buhari has the political will to make things better for Nigerians,’’ he said.
The APC chieftain believed that focusing on youths would address the various challenged facing them.
“The people-oriented programmes that will soon be unfolded by the president has become necessary as the country has a large percentage of unemployed youths.’’
Yabo believed that the potential of the nation’s future leaders should be harnessed for the development of democracy and the economy.
He called for prayers for God’s intervention in the socio-economic and political spheres of the country.
“Prayers and support of Nigerians will ensure peaceful implementation of the government programmes at all levels.
“Buhari has the experience and knowledge to make things better for Nigerians irrespective of tribe, religious and political differences”.
