We’ll continue to work for Nigeria’s stability, says Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has said the stability of the country is of paramount interest to him and Federal Government will continue to work towards it despite the actions of a few people.

The president stated this when he received a delegation of Borno/Yobe Elders Forum, who paid him a courtesy call at the State House, Abuja, on Tuesday.

He said: “We need this country. We will continue to work for its stability.

“I feel that whatever happens, we will continue to make it, and will keep on praying to God so that for those who feel that they don’t need Nigeria, we will succeed over their intentions and actions.”

The president attributed the upheavals in some parts of the country to a few people with resources and influence, assuring that they would be identified and dealt with in due course.

“I am confident that we will eventually convince the small number of people with resource and influence that are a nuisance to this great country.

“God willing, we will identify them, and deal with them.

“I am extremely concerned about your constituency like the rest of the country,” he added.

The president noted the request for the upgrade and development of infrastructure in the states and assured that while he would do his best in acceding to the requests, he would, however, prioritize development in education.

“We are aware of the infrastructure deficit.

“Our priorities will be education because all our citizens know that children within a certain age must receive it otherwise if they miss it, the future is destroyed,” he further explained.

He expressed appreciation to the leaders for coming to terms with the positive improvement that had occurred in the states since the inception of the administration.

In his remarks, Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno, said the leaders were in Abuja to thank the president for the tremendous improvement in their states and to intimate him with some of the prevailing socio-economic conditions.
