President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed that he wonders why Nigerians accepted and voted for him “despite not being rich”.
Buhari made the comment on Tuesday when he received the report of the National Security Summit held on May 26 by the house of representatives.
The report was submitted by a team of lawmakers led by Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.
President Buhari stated that he knew he needed to serve Nigerians to the best of his ability while recalling the support he got during his presidential campaign.
“The number of people that turned out to see me, some waiting for 10 hours in the sun, was more than anyone could buy, or force. They just wanted to see who this Buhari was. People wonder why Nigerians accept me, despite not being rich. I wonder, too,” Buhari said.
“I felt I just have to serve Nigeria and Nigerians to the best of my ability.”
