The Federal Government on Thursday unveiled nine priority areas of President Muhammadu Buhari’s second-term administration, stressing that these areas are encapsulated in ‘Nigeria First’ as the new foreign policy thrust of the government.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, made this known while briefing the diplomatic corps in Abuja in Thursday. He noted that the key areas include: building a virile economy, enlarging agricultural output, energy sufficiency, expansion of transport and infrastructure, among others as the new focus of the administration.
The Minister told the international community that during the first term of President Muhammadu Buhari, security, fight against corruption and job creation were the priority areas of the administration. He added that the second term of President Buhari would be expanding the focus which would guide the policy direction over the next four years.
