According to him, ‘‘The Next Level is to consolidate whatever we have done till 2023 and it makes common sense that in order to manage any outfit, whether a nation, state or organisation, you have to secure it.

‘‘We all know how many local governments Boko Haram were occupying. People from the North-east know that they are not holding any local government today.

“They were holding 17 out of the 774 local governments before we came in 2015; they are not holding any now.’’

He also reeled out the government’s efforts in reviving the agricultural sector of the country.

‘‘What we did was to encourage agriculture, and fertiliser was made available at half the price,” he said.

‘‘We encouraged people to go back to land. The response was excellent. We have virtually achieved food security; we have stopped the importation of rice.

‘‘The money we have saved in foreign exchange is in hundreds of millions of dollars, not even in naira. We are putting that into infrastructure.”
