President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday reiterated the commitment of his government to a safer Nigeria despite the security challenges.
President Muhammadu Buhari The President gave the assurance when he granted audience to the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo (MBO) Dynamic Support Group led by the National Coordinator, Usman Ibrahim, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Buhari said the aim of the government is to have a Nigeria where families will be safe and children having opportunities for comfortable lives He said “As leaders in your various communities, I urge you all to take the message back to your community.
It is not about politics, religion or tribe. It is about having a Nigeria where our family will be safe and our children will have plenty of opportunities to earn a living and have a comfortable life,” he said.
While thanking the group for its hard work and dedication during the 2019 elections campaign, the President said that his administration is committed to delivering on its mandate.
Buhari who assured the group that he will study the demands described Nigeria’s constitution as the fairest document where a state like Bayelsa with eight local government areas and Kano with 44 local government areas have the same number of senators (three each) representing their people.
“The constitution facilitates one thing, that is there must be a member of the executive council from each state of the federation. Why I praise the authors of our constitution is that Bayelsa with eight local government has three senators and Kano with 44 has three senators.
So, you can’t be fairer than that in the context of one Nigeria. “Please try and understand that I appreciate you, you are doing a thankless job nobody is paying you. You use your resources and time to come together and discuss national resources.
I pray God will help us to keep this country strong economically and morally.” Ibrahim in his remarks earlier described Buhari’s victory in the 2019 election as no handout but reward of the president’s painstaking commitment he made with Nigerians.
