The Association of Nigerian Professionals in Europe (ANPE) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to consolidate on his groundbreaking foreign investments after marking 100 days in office as well as victory at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
This group of Nigerian intellectuals made this known on Thursday after an annual general meeting in The Hague, Netherlands to score the first 100 days of the president’s second term in office.
In a communique jointly signed by Dr. Agwu Onyeke (President) and 13 others executives across Europe, the ANPE rated Mr Buhari high having analysed critical areas of security, economic stability, and the independence of the Judiciary.
According to the group, the last decade days ushered a new chapter in the history of the country’s democracy with the “re-jigging of the governance approach in the conduct of government business”.
The group further applauded President Buhari for demonstrating capacity and commitment to the entrenchment of democratic ideals in all spheres of life in Nigeria.
