President Muhammadu Buhari has warned that a group of Nigerians is out to destabilise the country.
The president who stated this at an Iftar dinner with governors, ministers, and heads of agencies on Tuesday night, April 19, urged all Nigerians to rise up and resist them.
He maintained that the country will succeed despite present security concerns. He went on to say that he had benefited from free, fair, and credible elections, and that the adoption of technology and the Permanent Voters Card would make it impossible for anybody in the nation to claim millions of votes again.
“We have the land, we have the resources, and we have the people. But I do not know why people will allow themselves to be successfully subverted to destabilize their own country”. He said
The Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum and Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, spoke on behalf of all the governors present and praised President Buhari for exhibiting endurance and determination during a critical moment in Nigeria’s history.
“We’ve a leader who is not distracted by momentary challenges but has continued to commit to the renewal of our nation and we, governors, ministers and heads of government agencies are equally dedicated to building a better Nigeria, on your watch,” he said.
