President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday boasted that he has surpassed his predecessors in government, declaring that no "government since the return of democracy in 1999 has done what his regime has done in six years."

Apparently referring to former presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, Umaru Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan who were his predecessors, Buhari said a lot has been achieved by his administration in the last six years on many fronts.

He made this known in his nationwide broadcast to Nigerians to mark the country’s 61 years nationhood.

He said his critics erred in their interpretation of issues, with many of them reading incremental progress as stagnation.

“Since coming to power, this administration has tackled our problems head-on in spite of the meagre resources.

“No government since 1999 has done what we have done in six years to put Nigeria back on track.
“We shall continue to serve the country: listen to all and protect our democracy and country,” Buhari said. 
Meanwhile, President Ram Nath Kovind of India has congratulated the government and people of Nigeria on the occasion of the 61st independence anniversary on October 1.

In a congratulatory letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, Kovind conveyed his best wishes to the Nigerian leader as well as the continued prosperity of the country.

‘‘India and Nigeria have warm, friendly and deep rooted ties. Our multifaceted relations have further been expanded and strengthened by regular and cordial engagements at various levels.
‘‘India and Nigeria have strong relations. Despite challenges during the pandemic, our economic relations have gained strength.
‘‘Please accept my best wishes for Your Excellency’s good health and well-being as well as for the continued prosperity and progress of the friendly people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,’’ Kovind  said.
