Kano State governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has described President Muhammadu Buhari as a patriot and an unrepentant nationalist “who loves Nigeria, more than himself.”
A statement issued by the chief press secretary to Governor Ganduje, Abba Anwar, said “President Buhari is a true and dedicated nationalist, who loves Nigeria more than the way he (Buhari) loves himself.”
He stressed that Buhari is an embodiment of honesty, integrity, transparency, accountability and utmost patriotism for genuine national development, emphasising that, “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. He is too much committed to bringing sustainable development to our dear nation. This dinner in his honour is timely and apt,” Ganduje stated.
He further said “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.”
“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,Ganduje posited.
