The wife of the President of Nigeria, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, on Friday assured Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari will do everything possible to improve their living conditions.
She therefore asked them to give the President all the needed support to succeed.
Mrs. Buhari spoke during the traditional breaking of Ramadan fast she organised for the less privileged inside the old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
She said, “I want to assure you that my husband, President Muhammadu Buhari, will do everything possible to improve the living conditions of every citizen.
“I also want to acknowledge your contributions in various fields to the socio-economic development which are very important to the survival of our nation.
“You know that the nation is passing through a transition, therefore, there is need for all to support this government to succeed.”
While acknowledging that her husband won the March 28 Presidential election through team work, the President’s wife appealed that the team work should continue.
She said Buhari could not do it alone, hence the call for support.
“We won the election through team work. Let the team work continue. The President cannot do it alone, he needs your support. Please support him,” she appealed.
Mrs. Buhari said she decided to organise the event to show love because both the privileged and the less privileged are all one in God’s sight.
She also lauded the peaceful conducts of Nigerians before and after the last elections, saying their behaviours were commdendable.
She urged them to continue in the same spirit because peace is required for the progress of the country.
Mrs. Buhari was joined at the brief event by wife of the Imo State Governor, Mrs. Nkechi Okorocha; wife of the Nassarawa State Governor, Mrs. Tanko Al-Makura: wife of the former governor of Rivers State, Mrs. Judith Amaechi; former Lagos State Deputy Governor, Mrs. Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire; and a former member of the House of Representatives, Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa among others.
