President Muhammadu Buhari has told the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II that nobody could disabuse the minds of Nigerians on his clear intentions for the country and its citizens concerning his electoral promises prior to the 2015 presidential election.
This was contained in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
Buhari said this while paying homage to the Emir at the start of his two-day state visit to Kano.
He 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 further assured all citizens of the country that the fight against the degraded Boko Haram will be sustained.
He also said the positive trends in the economy and the fight against corruption will continue.
He recounted his fond memories of Kano as a symbol of peace, trade, commerce and industry in Nigeria.
Buhari said, “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.
