BMO Lauds Global Award For Buhari’s Social Investment Programme
The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has applauded the recent endorsement of the Social Investment Programme (SIP) of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration by the World Economic Forum (WEF). The award was conferred on Nigeria at the WEF’s Impact Summit in New York, United States on Monday, September 23, 2019.
The group also opined that the profound leadership of President Buhari, driven by sincerity, honesty, diligence and top-notch diplomacy is responsible for Nigeria’s improved international status at the World body and the comity of Nations.
In a statement signed by its chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Maduke, BMO said it is obvious that the people-oriented programmes put in place by the Buhari administration is attracting international encomiums as some countries are now understudying the policy and adopting them for their countries.
“In fact, it has become a reference point for poverty reduction globally.
“The Social Investment Programme has impacted positively on over 40 million Nigerians, with a long term target to remove about 100 million people out of poverty in ten years.
“With this recognition, it is crystal clear that the Buhari administration has enunciated the right policies and programmes towards alleviating the plight of the poor in the country, and the international recognition will no doubt spur the Buhari administration to sustain the tempo”.
BMO noted further that the determination and commitment of the Buhari administration to eradicate poverty in Nigeria “is resolute and unwavering” and enjoined Nigerians to continue to support the administration in this direction.
Commenting on President Buhari’s plea at the World body for the recharging of Lake Chad, the group said that the call was motivated by the President’s concern for the 45 million people who sourced for their livelihood from the emaciated Lake Chad.
