President Muhammadu Buhari, Thursday in Katsina State warned public officials, particularly those elected and appointed into office, that they must keep public trust or leave.
“Those who betray the people’s trust, we will not spare them, they would be fished out and dealt with,” the President said.
He spoke at the palace of Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumini Kabir, as he arrived for the grand finale of the APC presidential campaign rally before the elections on Saturday, having visited all the states including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Buhari told the Emir and members of the Emirate Council that the promises he made before his election in 2015 have been met, adding with certainty that all he needed was a second term and would not ask for more.
“There is hope in the future of this great country,” the President said, appealing to all Nigerians to ensure a peaceful conduct of the election.
The President highlighted his administration’s achievements in infrastructure development including improved power supply, as well as empowering artisans, craftsmen, tailors, barbers and battery chargers to increase output and better their own lives.
“The local production of rice and the increased agricultural production have helped the country to achieve food self-sufficiency,” he said.
The President thanked the people of his home state for the “unprecedented” turnout of men and women from both rural and urban areas and the intensity of support shown by them.
The President said it was humbling to see a mammoth crowd line the streets of Katsina and fill the Karakanda Stadium to see and listen to him give a scorecard of his stewardship in the last three and half years.
