The Presidency on Sunday claimed that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration had broken many jinxes.

In a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media, Mr Femi Adesina, the Presidency said Buhari had done some erstwhile impossible tasks, including signing the Petroleum Industry Bill into law.

According to Adesina, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation also recently declared an N287 billion profit-after-tax in its 44-year history.

It has also launched the first National Social Investment Programme in the country’s history. Today, it is the largest Social Investment Programme in Africa and one of the largest in the world.

“Restoration of the federal budget to a January-to-December cycle, after more than a decade. While the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) was established in 2011, for its first seven years, it did not have an enabling Act of the National Assembly – Until 2018 when President Buhari assented to the NCDC Act.”
