- The Buhari-led administration has assured Nigerians that it will not stop building roads, railways, boosting electricity to transform the nation
- According to President Buhari, his government will continue with the provision of basic social amenities
- The president hailed his party, the APC, saying they have no other interest than to serve this country and to serve the people
President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, January 28, said that the country and Nigerians are always on his mind.
Buhari disclosed this at a voter education workshop organised by the directorate of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He also said his administration will make available infrastructural facilities to every part of the country with the little resources the country has.
President Buhari used the occasion also to pledge that his administration will not stop building roads, railways, boosting electricity to make for a total transformation of the nation.
He also charged participants of the workshop to convince voters to massively support APC to win the next elections.
Buhari said: “Please try and convince our ordinary voters for the sacrifice they are making that as far as this system is concerned we are all the same because I have one vote each. Let them feel they are important enough as Nigerian citizens. Therefore, we need their support and cooperation, let them come and vote for us.
“We don’t have money to give everybody. We will use the money for the provision of infrastructure - we will try and do your roads, we will try and do the rail and we will improve on power. I assure you that I go to bed and wake up thinking about Nigerians and Nigeria.”
Buhari also expressed joy that he is hopeful that APC would win the forthcoming elections going by the recent results in bye-elections in Edo, Ondo, Osun and Ekiti.
He said: “The bye-elections in Kogi and Rivers were disastrous under the former party leadership as people were killed, properties lost and I as the President was very uncomfortable and unhappy.
“But the elections in Edo and Ondo partially resuscitated my morale because we won those elections. And then of course, subsequently we have virtually been winning all bye-elections - Ekiti and Osun and so on.
“This is done not because merely we are in power but because we decided to rebuild the party from bottom upwards so that people that represent the party and members of the party at each constituency will know whom they would trust for nomination as their representatives at local, state and federal levels."
Buhari said the victory in those elections were not accidental but well planned by his party, as he also mentioned his party’s commitment to service.
