Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has on Tuesday explained why Muhammadu Buhari repeatedly contested for the office of the president.
Buhari contested for the presidential stool in 2003, 2007 and 2011 before he eventually won in 2015.
Adesina said Buhari’s desire was to bequeath a better future to the Nigerian youth and that he needed the support of all Nigerians to make that happen.
He made this statement while playing host to National Youths Advocacy for Good Governance Initiative in his office.
Adesina said President Buhari had remained in politics because of his desire to see a new Nigeria emerge for the upcoming generation.
‘‘One of the reasons President Buhari repeatedly contested for the position of the President of Nigeria was to see the country properly take care of young people.
‘‘He strongly believes there should be a better country for the future generation.
‘‘Tell your colleagues to team up with a government that envisages a better future for this country because Nigerians deserve a better future and that is what the President is aspiring to bequeath,’’ the Special Adviser said.
In his remarks, the National Coordinator of the Youth Group, Comrade Alabi Abiodun, commended Adesina for his exemplary role and service to the nation.
He described the President’s spokesman as a lover of truth, mentor and icon for Nigerian youths.
