President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday in Edo State, assured Nigerians that their sufferings occasioned by the economic recession, will soon be a thing of the past.
The president re-assured the citizens of his administration’s resolve to make the country great again.
He spoke in Benin City, the Edo State, capital at the grand finale of the All Progressive Congress, APC’s campaign rally, ahead of this Saturday’s governorship election in the state.
President Buhari, who paid tribute to the late Oba of Benin, Oba Erediauwa, described him as a man of foremost integrity and forthrightness.
He said, “[Adams] Oshiomhole has reminded you of what we have gone through from 1999 to 2015. We have seen development more than what it used to be when Edo State was created. It was at that time that I met with the Oba who has joined his ancestors, and I saw a man with great integrity and there is no doubt that there is hardly any traditional ruler which is foremost and forthright like him.
“Edo people are lucky because as long as Nigeria exists, we will continue to play our role in stabilizing Nigeria. We are a nation of great human and material resources especially the youths. Please sit down and reflect and remember what I said years ago that there is no other nation like Nigeria. We will remain one together because no matter where you go the colour of your skin will be a problem for you.
“I congratulate Obaseki and I recommend him to you. He is a seasoned man so that you will continue to grow in Edo state. You have a credible team, you better hold them tight and ensure that Obaseki succeeds.
“I assure you that we are going to get out of our economic problems. We are almost out of our security problem and we are going to make Nigeria greater again. We are going to be very proud of our country once again, our size, our resources will not be for nothing. We will continue to grow”.
