 Buhari pledges to protect Nigeria’s integrity in Sokoto

The President made the remarks yesterday while addressing thousands of All Progressives Congress (APC) supporters at a rally in the state.

He said that his administration had successfully succeeded in its three cardinal objectives of fighting corruption, revamping agriculture and improving security.

“We have succeeded in fighting Boko Haram. Our farming system has tremendously improved and corruption has generously been addressed.

“I want to assure you that our party will continue in this direction in order to ensure that we successfully protect the integrity of Nigerians and our country,” he said.

The President thanked the people of Sokoto State for their massive turnout to welcome him to the state. The APC national leader, Bola Tinubu, assured the people that the country remained in safe hands with President Buhari’s return.

He said that Nigerians should continue to troop out en mass to vote all APC candidates for more development in the country. Earlier, the state APC Chairman, Sadiq Achida, assured that the people of the state will vote massively for all the party’s candidate at the forthcoming election.

Buhari had earlier pledged not to compromise in providing good leadership that would guarantee better life for all Nigerians. Buhari made the pledge when he led All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign team on a courtesy visit to the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, at his palace in Sokoto.

He said his administration achievements were glaring as previously no fewer than 17 local government areas were being controlled by Boko Haram group but at present none was being occupied by the group.

He added that the armed groups deployed other tactics of using girls as bomb carriers and other pockets of crimes which had been reduced drastically and contained.

He assured the Sultan that such good development would be sustained if elected, noting that they were in his palace to seek for blessings.

Responding, the Sultan called on Buhari to sustain the war against corruption and pledge that the Sultanate Council would partner with all organs of government in promoting transparency and accountability.

According to him, Islam discourage evil and called on people to cooperate with various organisations on promoting good governance.

He commended Buhari for tackling security challenges across the country, but urged the federal government to reequip security agencies and provide them with incentives to enhance their work.
