President Muhammadu Buhari has said nobody can disabuse the minds of Nigerians on his clear intentions for the country and the promises he made ahead of the 2015 presidential election which he won.
The President made the speech on Wednesday while paying homage to the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, at the start of his two-day state visit to Kano.
According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari said: “The three things we said in our campaign on security, economy and fighting corruption, nobody will be able to successfully disabuse the minds of Nigerians on our clear intentions for our country and our people,” the President was quoted as saying.
He recounted his fond memories of Kano as a symbol of peace, trade, commerce and industry in Nigeria.
“If there is a problem here, the whole country has a problem. I remember the industry and employment people get in Kano.
“Before the problem in the North East, I remember the number of articulated vehicles that left this city to Maiduguri and the Cameroons, and the number of vehicles that came in from Chad and Niger, providing millions of jobs to Nigerians.
“A lot of people in Nigeria didn’t realise how much the instability in the North East has cost the people and the industry here,” the President said.
