The government swept into office on the wings of Change, and that change has been wrought in nearly all phases of national life. Where the lofty goals are yet to be attained, it is still work in progress, and eyes are firmly fixed on the ball. No distraction.
The three main areas on which government of is administrative agendas are: Security, Reviving the economy ,with emphasis on job creation, especially for youths, and lastly fighting Corruption. These three major areas, today cannot be compared with where we used to be.
By May 2015, Lack of adequate security,kidnapping had badly fractured the fabric of the nation. No one could bet that the country would survive the following hurdle, not to talk of another year. There were lots of kidnapping , insurgents ran riot round the country,and other forms of crime and criminality were very rampant

The economy, long dependent on a mono product – petroleum, is being retooled, refocused, with diversification as a task that must be accomplished. Agriculture has been given a fillip, Manufacturing has got a shot in the arm, and solid minerals are contributing a large chunk to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The country is very close to food security, with rice, beans, maize, millet, and all sorts of grain are no longer imported. We now eat and depend on what we grow.
