WE'RE STILL A LUCKY COUNTRY DESPITE OUR CHALLENGES — PRESIDENT BUHARI

 



President Muhammadu Buhari said that Nigerians are lucky country and should congratulate ourselves, despite the challenges that could have torn by us apart.


He made this statement at State House Abuja on Tuesday when receiving the report of the National Security Summit held on 26 may 2021, by the House of Representatives.


The report was submitted by a team of House members, led by the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Femi Ghajabiamila.


Mr President challenged leaders to respect the people, from the lowest to the highest, “so that it becomes a duty to them (the people) to pay back to the leadership.”


The President said “To choose who they like as their leaders, irrespective of political party or religion.”


“The number of people that turned out to see me, some waiting for 10 hours in the sun, was more than anyone could 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. I felt I just have to serve Nigeria and Nigerians to the best of my ability.” 


The Speaker submitted: “Thank you Mr President for what you have done so far to douse tension and for Nigeria to remain one. It’s about all of us, not just the Executive, the legislature or the judiciary. And Nigeria will work, by the grace of God.”
