President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians of his commitment to serving the nation, to ensure they live a better life.
He gave the assurance yesterday in Daura, Katsina State, when he received associations of farmers, businessmen, youths, elders and politicians from Katsina at his country home.
President Buhari, who attributed his recent convalescence to a divine act of the Almighty God, said he returned to the country with renewed hope and strength to pursue policies that will improve the livelihood of the people, and reposition Nigeria for good. His Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement, quoted Buhari as saying: “Considering the challenges we are facing as a nation, we have been doing our best to provide sustainable solutions, and we will keep doing our best.
“I am happy you came here today, and I am thankful for all the prayers. You are leaders of various groups at the grassroots, and you are closer to the people, so you understand these problems as well. We need your support,” he said. In his remarks, leader of the group of associations, Zannan-Daura, Alhaji Sani Ahmed Daura, said Buhari’s return singled around the fortunes of the country.
“On behalf of all the elders here, we are grateful to God you returned alive, and in good health,” he said.
Daura, a former assistant inspector general of Police, said the president’s patience, endurance and contentment was exemplary, praying that God would give him more strength and wisdom to lead the country.
