Below are the nine promises President Buhari made to Nigerians today in his New Year speech:

g. Test run and start full operations of the Abuja Capital Light Rail, which progress has reached 98% completion.

3. He promised a 12-week rapid intervention in road repairs to cover all the 6 geo-political zones through the newly reconstituted management of the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA). "Government is undertaking repairs and maintenance of 44 roads within the six geo-political zones," He assured.

Stop making yourself an object of severe ridicule on this forum.

We have reiterated countlessly to your deaf ears that President Muhammadu Buhari is the people's choice and will effortlessly win again at the forthcoming poll.

You can wail all you wish but there is a way to always end that - taking a bold jump on 3rd mainland bridge.

Fake and empty promises.

Since Buhari assumed office, he has spent N1 trillion on works and housing but not a single project. Most Nigerian roads are in sorry sight.

Most of the railways buhari is going to rehabilitate/build were all initiated, most completed by Jonathan. Buhari is looking to just paint the rails and claim it as his project.

Jonathan built more than 3 power plants begore leaving office. How exactly is buhari adding more MW to the grid if he has not built a single power plant since he resumed office?

Lies and empty promises. It's another election year.

I hope he does not think this is 2015 election campaigns, since he is even confused about his age.

Your failure in the 2019 will be epic.
