President Muhammadu Buhari says all efforts will be made to improve the livelihood of Nigerians, starting with providing adequate security, reiterating that he owes Nigerians a debt of gratitude for the opportunity to serve.
Speaking at the palace of the Shehu of Borno, in Maiduguri, Borno, on Thursday, Buhari noted that he started his administrative career as a military officer in Borno as a governor for seven months, under Gen. Murtala Mohammed.
He said he was later appointed Minister of Petroleum by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who was then a military Head of State.
Malam Garba Shehu, the President’s spokesman in a statement, quoted Buhari as saying: “My commitment to serve Nigerians is a payback for the love shown to me. I started my political adventure in Maiduguri and I always look forward to coming here.”
