President Muhammadu Buhari has said the campaign trail was an eye-opener for him, assuring Nigerians that he will do his best for the country and her citizens when he begins a second term in office on May 29, while appreciating those that voted him in the election.
He spoke while receiving the Board of Trustees and Advisory Council of Gidauniyar Jihar Katsina (Katsina State Development Fund) led by Justice Mamman Nasir at the State House, Abuja, noting that his campaign to all states of the federation was an eye opener.
The President, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina, said the crowd that welcomed his campaign train in each state was more than anyone can possibly “induce,” attributing the turnout of people as an appreciation of the efforts of his administration.
Buhari noted that he was the chairman of the Katsina State Development Fund for 17 years, during which period a lot was done to support education, healthcare and agriculture in the state, especially for those that were less privileged.
In his remarks, the Galadima of Katsina, Justice Nasir, said the foundation returned gratitude to God and all Nigerians for giving Buhari the opportunity to serve another term in office.
“We are most grateful to almighty Allah for bringing you back for another term in office. Our happiness and gratitude goes to Nigerians for electing you,” he said.
