On Tuesday, Pres. Buhari visited Yola where he insisted that he had fulfilled major promises made to electorate during his political campaign.
During a visit to the place of Lamido of Adamawa, Alhaji Muhammadu Barkindo, Mr. Buhari said that the fight against corruption and maintaining peace and security were among the priorities of his administration.
“We appreciate security progress in the North East and the country at large. He explained also that economic development has improved, especially in the area of agriculture.
“We are lucky that for the past two years farmers across the country experienced excellent harvests,” Buhari said.
Barkindo had advised Buhari not to listen to the call by some “empty barrel Nigerian elite’’ that he should not seek for a second term. “I am calling you to remain focus, stand firm and don’t listen to the empty barrels Nigerian elites who are calling you not to re-contest for 2019 Presidential election.
They are burying their heads in shame and telling people that Buhari’s led Government has done nothing,” Barkindo noted. He noted that the elite had forgotten that Buhari introduced Treasury Single Account where Tens of Trillions of naira belonging to Nigerian people was saved.
He listed some of the visible achievements of Buhari to include security, economy and fight against corruption.
