Abdullahi Ganduje, Governor of Kano State, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari is a true patriot who loves Nigeria more than he loves himself.
According to Abba Anwar, chief press secretary to the governor, Ganduje said this at an event of the All Progressives Congress (APC) caucus in the South-East organised for the president in Owerri, Imo State.
“We have in him a true and committed leader. Buhari is a symbol of unity. Buhari loves Nigeria more than the way he loves himself,” Anwar quoted Ganduje as saying.
“He is too much committed to bringing sustainable development to our dear nation. This dinner in his honour is timely and apt.
“Before our dear president came in, we had series of bomb attacks all over the north-east. So also in places like Kano, we had terrible experiences.
“There was a time in Kano when 10 police stations were bombed simultaneously. Over 300 people were killed. We can still remember when there were explosives at Kano Central Mosque, where another set of more than 200 were killed by the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents. But everything is now history. When President Buhari came in now it, is a different story.”
Ganduje said before the emergence of theBuhari regime, the military was in disarray and soldiers were using almost obsolete weapons while enthusiasm in the fight against insurgency was low.
“But when Buhari came on board, things were put in good shape. Buhari is absolutely for Nigeria. If we are looking for economic prosperity for the nation, Buhari is the answer. If we are looking for integrity, Buhari is the answer. If we are looking for honesty in the fight against corruption, Buhari is the answer,” he said.
