President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that he will put in all effort to ensure the best for them and the country in his second term beginning on May 29.
The president, who gave this assurance on Monday while receiving the Board of Trustees and Advisory Council of Gidauniyar Jihar Katsina (Katsina State Development Fund) led by Mamman Nasir, a former president of the Court of Appeal, at the State House, also appreciated all those who voted him during the elections.
He said his campaign to all states of the federation was an eye opener.
“Thank you for supporting me. I assure you that I will do my best during the second term. We will work for Nigeria and her people,’’ he said.
Buhari said the crowd that welcomed his campaign train in each state was more than anyone can possibly “induce’’, attributing the turnouts to the people’s appreciation of the efforts of his administration.
The President pointed out 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.
Nasir expressed the foundation gratitude to God and all Nigerians for giving President 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.
Justice Nasir said the foundation also remained grateful for the years the president served as its chairman.
