Civil Society Organizations in the country have said that they will hold the president-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari to the promises he made to the electorates while campaigning.

Addressing journalists in Abuja, the convener of Nigeria Civil Society Situation Room  and Executive Director‎ of Policy and Legal Advocacy Centre, Mr Clement Nwankwo, said that the people have made a statement by voting for Buhari and that it is in the best interest of Buhari to deliver on his promises.He said: ‎”Let no one make mistakes about this: we will keep a close eye on the incoming government. We will closely monitor the government.

”Expectations are high, and if the government fails, change will automatically be the answer.

“We will hold the new government to account. Buhari must come out with specific steps he will take to end corruption and impunity in the country.”

Situation Room also congratulates Buhari and urges him to chart the course of steering Nigeria away from its present economic and political crisis and on to the path of recovery.”He pointed that the president-elect would be assuming office against a background of several challenges, including socio-economic downturn, rising poverty, insecurity and insurgency, unprecedented corruption and declining infrastructure.

“The President-elect should take steps to re-unify the country and heal the wounds of a very divisive campaign largely fought along ethnic, religious and regional lines.

“We urge President-elect Buhari, to work for the common good of all of the Nigerian people, especially the poor and vulnerable sectors of the population,” he added
