Nigerians at an event in Abuja on Friday, were told that their President, Muhammadu Buhari needed nothing from the country, but rather, has come to give everything to it.
President Buhari’s special adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina stated this at an event in honour of Mr. President.
Adesina said Buhari’s concern remained how to make Nigeria greater and not what he would get from the country.
The president’s spokesman, therefore, urged Nigerians to emulate the exemplary leadership style of President Buhari by ensuring they placed high premium on national interest in all they do.
He said, “Let’s put Nigeria first; President Muhammadu Buhari is somebody that doesn’t want anything from the country rather, he has come to give everything to the country.
“So, let all Nigerians emulate that; let’s put the country before everything.
“When we all do that, we’ll find out that the country of our dreams will come faster than we can imagine”.
