Buhari has stated that the sacrifices Nigerians made in voting him the second time into office will certainly never ever be in vain. The President made this known through a special Sallah message to commemorate the end of the Ramadan fast.
Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Media and Publicity to the President, in a statement said that Buhari prior to the 2019 political elections has said that prophets of doom had forecasted that the elections will not be peaceful. Nonetheless, regardless of their forecasts, Nigerians appeared enmass to vote for him. He promised to guarantee that the citizens really feel the favorable impact of his administration.
The statement read, “Before the 2019 general elections, prophets of doom did not give the country a chance to conduct peaceful elections. Despite these fears, the country overcame its political challenges. For abandoning their businesses in order to vote, the voters had demonstrated great patriotism in coming out to exercise their civic duty. Let me use this opportunity once again to reassure all Nigerians that your sacrifices in voting for me won’t be in vain. I will ensure the ordinary voters feel the positive impact of government.”
President Buhari advised Muslims to constantly place humanity before individual interests.
“The Ramadan period is meant to reinforce us spiritually. Therefore, we should use religion as an inspiration to do good at all times. The virtues of the Ramadan should be sustained beyond the celebration. Going back to bad ways after the Ramadan might defeat the essence of the message and lessons the fasting period was supposed to inculcate in the hearts and minds of the Muslim faithful,” he stated.
President Buhari commiserates with sufferers of terrorism, kidnapping as well as banditry in the nation and also guaranteed that, “Their days are numbered because this administration will pursue them relentlessly and bring them to justice.”
