The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Monday, said no single government was capable of solving all the problems of the country.
He said the way out was for successive governments to be building on the foundations laid by previous administrations.
Buhari, who was represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, spoke at the State of the Nation Dialogue organised by the Nigerian Bar Association in Abuja.
“I will say no one government in this country will be able to solve the problems of Nigeria but as we build on the processes laid by successive governments, not discarding completely what has been put in place; we will build our dreams, take one or two things to concentrate on and move on.
“We believe the outcome of this dialogue can be transmitted to us so that whatever resolutions are reached, whatever recommendations you make; that will become part of the document that we will prepare as we transit and handover to a new incoming government,” he said.
Speaking on the state of security in the country, a former Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase said the challenge in Nigeria is not much about the crime rate but the prosecution of criminals to serve as a deterrent to others.
