The Presidency has assured Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari is committed to making life better for Nigerians.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, made this known while speaking on behalf of some aides of Buhari, including himself, who were given a special award of recognition ‘for their contributions in projecting a solid and impressive image of the President in the discharge of their patriotic service to the Nigerian people.’
Garba Shehu said the president will not disappoint them in this second and last term in delivery of his promises.
In a statement by the Deputy Director of Information, Abiodun Oladunjoye, he noted that President Buhari was fully aware of the expectations of Nigerians:
“The President is committed to making life better for the average Nigerian. At the end of the tenure, Nigerians will look back and say that they have no regrets for voting him,” Shehu said.
The president’s spokesperson, however, urged the media, especially young publications like The Reporters, whose platform presented the awards, in carrying out their responsibilities effectively.
“We cannot achieve this alone. We count on the support of the citizens. We count on the support of the media, particularly up and coming publications like yours and we are also assuring you of our cooperation when you call on us,” he said.
Other aides of the President given certificates of recognition were:
Mr Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity; Ambassador Lawal Abdullahi Kazaure, State Chief of Protocol; and Bayo Omoboriowo, Personal Photographer to the President
