The Presidency has released and celebrated a list of what it described as jinxes broken and milestone achievements by President Muhammadu Buhari since he assumed office six years ago.

Special Adviser, Media, and Publicity, to the President, Femi Adesina reeled out the milestones achieved by his principal.

Adesina listed the completion of the headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC), Niger Delta Development Commission(NDDC) complexes, which his administration completed in 2018 and 2021, respectively among the milestones.

He added that the Zik mausoleum started in 1996, was completed and inaugurated in 2018 by President Buhari’s regime as another feat.

Adesina also noted that under Buhari, the NNPC announced a “first-ever profit” of N287 billion. A giant-sized jinx was broken recently when the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) announced a first net profit in the 44-year history of the organisation.”
He however pointed out that the achievements he listed are not the only major jinx broken in the lifetime of the Buhari administration.

The media aide went on to reel out a list, which he says, is by no means exhaustive.

On the list were the Petroleum Industry Bill signed into law in 2021, after almost two decades in the works, and the “first National Social Investment Programme in the country’s history”.

“Today it is the largest Social Investment Programme in Africa and one of the largest in the world,” Adesina said.
