He quoted Buhari as saying: “Thank you for supporting me. I assure you that I will do my best during the second term. We will work for Nigeria and her people."
"The President said the crowd that welcomed his campaign train in each state was more than anyone can possibly “induce’’, attributing the turn outs to people’s appreciation of the efforts of his administration.
"President Buhari noted that he was the chairman of the Katsina State Development Fund for 17 years, during which period a lot was done to support education, healthcare and agriculture in the state, especially for those that were less privileged," Adesina said.

He said: “We are most grateful to almighty Allah for bringing you back for another term in office. Our happiness and gratitude goes to Nigerians for electing you."
Justice Nasir said the foundation also remains grateful for the years the President served as its chairman.
