The President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday assured Nigerians that his administration would be fair to all irrespective of religious and political inclinations, and ensure there is justice in the land.
Speaking when a delegation of party members from his home state of Katsina paid him a congratulatory visit at the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation (APCPCO) headquarters in Abuja, Buhari said his administration would not condone injustice of any kind.
“I will never be part of any injustice in the country. There shall be justice in the land. We would strive to rescue our people who are suffering from injustice over the years. We will ensure that there is peace and security in the country. We will fight corruption and eliminate ignorance, poverty and illiteracy in the land. These are the causes of tribalism and divisiveness among Nigerians,” he said.
Buhari also lamented the level of poverty and deprivation among Nigerians. He therefore promised to do all within his power to end this.
He commended his kinsmen from Katsina State for their support, promising to live up to their expectations in ensuring good governance in the country.
Chairman of the Katsina State chapter of the APC, Dr Mustapha Inuwa, who was one of those that spoke on behalf of the delegation, expressed gratitude to God over the victory of Buhari in the presidential poll.
“For us from Katsina, we assure you that we will be good followers, we will pray for you to succeed, we will not allow your victory at the poll to get into our heads, we will continue to be law abiding. We pray that you get the team that will work with you to deliver the goods,” he said.
