President Muhammadu Buhari has said that with all their resources, the opposition cannot fault his government’s commitment to ensuring safety of lives and property, improved economy and war against corruption.
The president made this declaration on Thursday in Daura, Katsina State, during a lunch with some All Progressives Congress governors and some members of the National and State assemblies and commissioners.
He gave the assurance that his government would continue to work towards improving the situation in the country.
His words: “We are always encouraged when all our constituents are happy with the work we are doing and our genuine efforts to make sure that what we campaigned for in 2015 is still very much in our minds and we have not lost focus.
‘‘In terms of security, economy and the fight against corruption we have maintained focus. Even the opposition with all their resources cannot fault our identification of Nigeria’s priorities and the efforts being made to better them.
‘‘We will continue to do what we ought to do in the leadership position God has placed us and we thank the constituents for the support.’’
Speaking on the defection by some from the APC, the president said that he wished them well.
He said the defections would not distract his administration from the good work it was doing for the benefit and development of Nigeria.
The Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, who was at the occasion, commended Buhari for his great efforts in keeping the nation together through visionary leadership.
He noted that President Buhari had remained focused and unshaken by situations and circumstances, adding that ‘‘it shows that your administration is approved by God.’’
