Abuja - The Presidency has come out in defence of Muhammadu Buhari, detailing his achievements over the past seven months in the fight against corruption, Punch reports.
In reaction to a recent report by the Centre of Democracy and Development (CDD), Mallam Garba Shehu, the President's Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, claimed that it was mischievous level promises that the President did not make against him.
According to the CDD's report, Buhari has achieved only one of the 222 promises he allegedly made during his election campaign.
Critical areas identified in the report include security, the economy, fighting corruption, oil and gas, agriculture and social and environmental sectors.

Shehu has since lambasted the CDD, calling on leading to rise above what he deems as "petty partisanship", saying that any unbiased person would clearly be able to recognise Buhari's achievements thus far.
Praising the President on alleged strides made over the past seven months, Shehu noted that Buhari's campaign against corruption has been celebrated, while he also managed to have successfully blocked leakages within the system.
Shehu stated that Buhari, like Barack Obama, inherited an economy in crisis and as such, should not be judged within the first few months of his tenure.
