    As part of Nigeria’s 55th Independence day celebration today October 1, 2015, President Muhammadu Buhari this morning had a nationwide broadcast where he spoke on some national issues.
    Below are 10 punchlines from his speech where he also addressed the reason for the late delivery of the ministerial list saying it was due to the lateness of the past administration to deliver to his administration their handover notes.
    Change does not just happen, to bring about change, we must change ourselves
    Fellow Nigerians, there has been a lot of anxiety and impatience over the apparent delay in the announcement of ministers. There is no cause to be anxious.
    Our government set out to do things methodically and properly.
    If we must bring about change, we must change our lawless habits, attitude to public office and public trust
    Nobody should fear anything from me. You should only fear the consequences of their actions
    The new APC government is embarking on a clean up, introducing prudence and probity in public financing.
    The fact that an opposition party replaced an entrenched government in a free and fair election is indicative of the deeper roots of our democratic system
    Better results for our country is what the APC government for change is all about.
    You and I and all of us must appreciate that we all have our part to play if we want to bring change about.
    I hereby invite everyone, whatever his or her political view, to join me in working for the nation.
