We Will Intensify Our Efforts in Security, Restructuring the Economy, fighting Corruption -Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has assured that the new administration will intensify its efforts in security, restructuring the economy and fighting corruption.
He gave the assurance in a statement after being re-elected as Nigeria’s president for another 4 years.
According to him, “we have laid down the foundation and we are committed to seeing matters to the end. We will strive to strengthen our unity and inclusiveness so that no section or group will feel left behind or left out”.
He however appealed to his supporters not to gloat or humiliate the opposition saying, “victory is enough reward for your efforts”.
Thanking God for victory sparing “our lives to witness another victory for Nigerian democracy and victory for our party APC”, Buhari also thanked the millions of Nigerians who voted to re-elect him as president for the next four years.
“I am deeply humbled and profoundly grateful to you for judging me worthy of continuing to serve you and for your peaceful conduct”.
“Although Saturday’s elections were relatively peaceful, troublemakers in a handful of states attempted to disrupt an otherwise orderly process. Security agencies will bring to justice all those arrested in the process”.
He said he was saddened at the grievous loss of lives during the elections. “Security agencies will step up their efforts to protect voters in the forthcoming State elections”.
“I would like to commend our security agencies, as severely overstretched as they are, for handling the difficult task of securing the country during the election period”.
“We give thanks also to our Domestic and International observers for contributing to the success of our elections and for their interest in our country and our developing democracy”, he said.
