Buhari to Nigerians: Please be patient with me
Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari has begged Nigerians to be patient with his government.
This appeal was made on Friday by President Buhari in a presidential message read during a town-hall meeting with traditional rulers, the youth and other stakeholders on the #EndSARS protest and its aftermath in Ilorin, Kwara state capital.
The meeting, hosted by Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, was attended by Abdulrazaq AbdulRahman, the state governor.
In a message read by information minister, Buhari said his administration has the interest of the youth and the people at heart and has been doing a lot to touch their lives.
The president said the government is constrained by the dwindling resources occasioned by the impact of COVID-19 which also affected the global economy.
“If we have not done enough or we have not touch everybody, we appeal that you please bear with us,” Buhari said.
“In the first instance, what we have is less than 60 per cent of the revenue that was available to other governments that came before us.
“We all know what we suffered during COVID 19, and as we are just trying to recover from this we also face another crisis.
“We appeal that you should please assist the government and be patient.
“This government is dedicated to serving the people and we will continue to try our best to do so.”
The meeting was also attended Yakubu Danladi, speaker of the state house of assembly; Sulu Gambari, Emir of Ilorin and other traditional rulers.
