Wife of the President, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, has revealed how Nigerian artistes helped her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari to achieve success in his political career.
She said this while calling on the artists to use their talent and popularity in mobilizing Nigerians towards unity, peace, tolerance, and productivity.
They were also urged to speak against vices that destroy society like drug abuse, human trafficking, and child abuse.
According to the details forwarded to Newsmen by the Special Adviser to the Wife of the President, Suleiman Haruna, she made the call during the launch of “Sakamakon Chanji”, a song in support of President Muhammadu Buhari by Northern Nigeria Music Artistes, on Wednesday 31st October, 2018 at the Banquet Hall, State House, Abuja.
Mrs. Buhari also used the event to honour many of the artists for using their various talents and contributions in propagating the success of the government.
“We are celebrating artistes because they celebrated our President at various points in his political career; and to a large extent, they represent the resilient Nigerian masses that protected the President and his votes until he achieved success.” She said.
She praised the artists for using their creativity to inform, educate and entertain the populace and mobilize them towards good behavior, towards best practices and towards good choices.
“I can safely say that you all have done the needful and therefore you are partly to take credit for the improved governance that Nigeria is enjoying today.”
The event was honoured with a brief appearance by President Muhammadu Buhari.
