President Muhammadu Buhari has acknowledged the significant role played by women and youths in his re-election and promised to give them more appointments in the next four years of his administration.

The president said his administration would not disappoint the women and youths in the next four years of his administration.

He gave the assurance on Saturday night while speaking at the All Progressives Congress (APC) Women and Youths Presidential Campaign team dinner to celebrate his the re-election in Abuja.

I appreciate your coming here tonight, but we have to congratulate ourselves for succeeding, we indeed thank God for this success, he said.

The President, however, promised that only those with integrity and interest of Nigeria would be considered for appointments in the next cabinet.

He said more fertilizers were being made available to Nigerian farmers at a lower rate.

According to him, that resulted in the increase in agricultural production and reduction in food importation.

Buhari also called on Nigerian youths to embrace agriculture to ensure more food sufficiency and food export.

The President faulted the sixteen-year rule of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) which he said, wasted the nation’s resources.

According to him, the country witnessed rampant infrastructure decay in spite of the huge resources earned during the period.
