President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to sustain his purposeful leadership and continue to focus more on infrastructural development across the country.

He said: “Leadership is a trust and we will not allow anybody to cheat or collaborate in any dishonest dealings.
“We made fertilizer abundant and affordable which facilitate increased harvest and people now focused on farming because of the gain.”

He urged politicians to practise their game according to the laws. He also counselled them against breeding violence in any form.
Addressing the mammoth crowd who thronged the Giginya Stadium venue of the campaign rally, Buhari urged the people to cast their vote for the All Progressives Congress in the forthcoming general election; to consolidate on the party’s achievements in the last three and a half years.
Buhari recalled that “when I came here in 2015 to campaign, I promise three things; to fight corruption, stop insurgency and improve our economy. Today, we can all see the results of the three.
“I promise to improve on all these in my second term, so as to improve on the living conditions of an average citizen of our country,” he stated.
