Buhari's promises
THE Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) has released its fourth Buharimeter Report, a governance-tracking tool, designed to monitor progress in the fulfilment of 222 tracked electoral promises made by President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigerians in the build up to the 2015 presidential election.

Under the section, ‘Metering the Interventions’, the Report concluded that Buhari has only achieved one out of the 222 tracked promises, which constitutes 0.5 per cent.

According to CDD, “Only 27 (12.2 per cent approximately) of the tracked promises are ongoing, which suggests that the government is taking action. In view of this, 194 electoral promises are still ‘Not Rated’, perhaps owing to lack of practical steps taken to achieve them. Unfortunately, these unrated promises constitute 87.3 per cent of the tracked promises.”

On security, one of the main signature issues on which he campaigned, the report noted that the Nigerian military has made progress in curtailing insurgency in the North East. It, however, disclosed that Boko Haram, between June 1 and December 31, 2015 killed an estimated 1,949 people, while hundreds of thousands were internally displaced within the same period.

The Report noted that interventionist strategies being implemented to curtail the insurgency would only be effective, if the fundamental causative factors fuelling extremism are addressed.

Still on security, the Report identified other forms of insecurity challenging the authority of the Nigerian State, as rural banditry, kidnapping, piracy, armed robbery and a handful of others, which it says, requires a robust, direct and strategic response from the administration.

On the economy, the Report, while observing that the government introduced several policies to improve performance, noted the absence of fiscal policies to complement the monetary policies reeled out so far.
