President Muhammadu Buhari is wondering why Nigerians from all walks of life and every corner of the country accepted him wholeheartedly even though he was not rich.
While receiving the report of the National Security Summit held in May from members of the House of Representatives led by the speaker, Demi Gbajabiamila on Tuesday, Buhari said he always wondered why Nigerians accepted him despite his poor financial status.
He recalled his experience during his election campaigns and the ‘love’ that people have shown him.
” The number of people that turned out to see me, some waiting for 10 hours in the sun was more than anyone can buy or force.
” They just wanted to see who this Buhari was. People wonder why Nigerians accept me despite not being rich, i wonder too,” Buhari said.
To this end, Buhari said he also was determined to give his best to the nation. ” I felt i just have to serve Nigeria and Nigerians to the best of my ability,” he said.
He also said despite the current challenges facing the country, Nigerians should congratulate themselves.
However, statistics paint a different picture from that of President Muhammadu Buhari as Nigeria is riddled with inflation, insecurity which the government has paid lip service to taming, economic word etc.
