President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians to demonstrate a high sense of patriotism to sustain the gains recorded in the war against insurgency, hoping that he will leave the presidency in peace.
Mr Buhari made the call when he paid homage to the Emir of Damaturu, Hashimi El-Kenemi II, on Monday in Damaturu.
He urged the citizens to develop strong confidence in the country and security institutions to deny terrorists the chance to destabilise the country again.
The president said his regime would continue to protect the right to education of Nigerian children, especially those displaced by the Boko Haram insurgency.
“With the four months I have left as president, I will continue to be steadfast, and I hope that I will retire in peace. We must develop strong confidence in our country. Let us make sure we do not compromise security at all in any form because security and economy are the most important things,” Mr Buhari stated. “We have gone through so much as a country and I appeal to you to be steadfast and make sure that we will not allow anybody to disorganise us again.”
Mr Buhari commended Governors Mai Mala Buni and Babagana Zulum for their roles in reconstructing schools and health centres destroyed by the insurgents. He claimed Nigeria had bounced back, waxing stronger.
