Buhari: I Will Not Please My Children At Detriment Of Nigerians
Nigeria's president Muhammadu Buhari will not please his children at the detriment of Nigerians.
Speaking in a 55-minue documentary titled: “Buhari: Beyond the Iron and Steel”, aired by the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), on Sunday, Buhari said he will never betray the trust reposed in him by Nigerian masses for personal gain.
According to President Buhari, he remains in politics today because of the goodwill he enjoys from the masses.
“I pray five times a day thanking God that allowed people to understand and believe me.
“This goodwill that I enjoy from the masses is what is keeping me in politics and of course, my central objective is to provide transparency and accountable government.”
Also featured in the documentary are Vice president Yemi Osinbajo, some ministers, some Buhari’s Special Advisers, governors and All Progressive Congress (APC) chieftains.
The Vice President said: “He gives you things to do, and leaves you strictly to do those things. No interference at all, once he has confidence in you….And he cracks those jokes, and manages to still keep a straight face.
Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, in his remarks, admitted that he and some other people he did not name could no longer roll on the floor of President Buhari’s living room like they used to when they were in opposition.
“When we were in the opposition, you needed to see how we rolled on the floor in his (Buhari’s) living room, as we laughed. Of course, we can’t do that again now,” he stated.
Ogun State Governor, Ibikunke Amosun, described him as a “reformed democrat.”
“I wish I had his patience. He would listen to everybody and then take a decision. He is a reformed democrat.”
The documentary was put together by the Media and Publicity department of the State House, Abuja.
