Nigeria’s President Buhari vows to improve people’s lives
Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has underlined his resolve to consolidate the country’s political system to improve the quality of the people’s lives because “the people matter.”
In an address at the palace of Alhaji Muhammadu Isa 11, the Emir of Jama’a in Kaduna in northern Nigeria, President Buhari said “we are doing our efforts to consolidate the system for the good of the people because they matter.”
To this end, he spoke about the use of the police and the military, in dealing with security situations but urged Nigerians to develop confidence in civil authority to build a system “free of chaos.”
“Nobody,” he warned emphatically, “should be allowed to raise an army of thugs to force himself on the people. This,” he added, “must be very clear.”
The President gave assurances of the determination of his administration “to hand over a better Nigeria than the one we inherited,” and urged Nigerians to be fair in their assessment of what his government has achieved especially on the campaign promises he made ahead of the 2015 elections.
President Buhari commissioned three road projects in Kafanchan, the headquarters of Jama’a local government area of Kaduna State.
He pledged the Federal Government’s resolve to continue to initiate programs that will impact on the ordinary Nigerians.
