Buhari Pledges Commitment to Stability in the Nation

President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged his commitment to ensuring that Nigerians enjoy Peace and stability and succeed over plotting disunity in the country.

Buhari stated this when he received a delegation of Borno/Yobe Elders Forum who paid him a courtesy visit at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, yesterday.

He said those who are using their resources and influence to constitute a nuisance in the country, thereby distorting public Peace, would be identified and dealt with.

The President said his first point of call was to ensure stability in the country. Therefore, the federal government would keep working to achieve it, irrespective of a few people’s ill actions.

A statement issued by the senior special assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, revealed the President saying: “We need this country. We will continue to work for its stability. I feel that whatever happens, we will continue to make it, and will keep on praying to God so that for those who feel that they don’t need Nigeria, we will succeed over their intentions and actions.”

He said the crises in some parts of the country are sponsored by few people with resources and influence, who will soon be identified.

He said: “I am confident that we will eventually convince the small number of people with resources and influence that are a nuisance to this great country. God willing, we will identify them, and deal with them. I am extremely concerned about your constituency like the rest of the country.”

The President said the proposal for the upgrade and development of infrastructure in the states has been noted and guaranteed that his administration would do its best in meeting the requests; however, he promised to prioritize development in education.

“We are aware of the infrastructure deficit. Our priorities will be education because all our citizens know that children within a certain age must receive it otherwise if they miss it, the future is destroyed,” he said.
Buhari further expressed appreciation to the leaders for coming to terms with the improvement that has occurred in the states since the inception of his administration.

In his remarks, Professor Babagana Zulum, Governor of Borno State, who spoke on behalf of the leaders, noted that they were in Abuja to appreciate the President for the immense improvement in their states and intimate him with some of the prevailing socio-economic conditions.
