Muhammadu Buhari, President-elect, speaking while receiving a delegation of the people of his home state, Katsina, has given assurances to Nigerians that he would handle state resources with utmost responsibility and honesty and that he will not condone the looting of public resources.
General Buhari, who assures that war against corruption will be ploughed into education with the objective of empowering the citizens, regretted that the Nigerians had been made poorer by the 16 years of PDP maladministration in spite of the fact that the country received more income in that period than at any other time. See Excerpts:
“If you give education to a man or woman, you have empowered them to be productive. There is no better way to empowerment,” Buhari asserted.
The President-elect, who exchanged banters with old schoolmates and kinsmen alike, among the 130-odd delegation spoke about his resolve to work with all Nigerians to pull the citizens out of the current hardships facing them.
Buhari also expressed his commitment to multi-party democracy as the best system of government and appealed to all citizens to imbibe courage and perseverance, virtues he said, stood him in good stead in bringing victory to him, after failing three times in the past presidential elections.
