I will make Nigeria great again – Buhari

05 November 2016, 18:00

Sokoto - President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed optimism that Nigeria is destined to achieve greatness in spite of the current challenges.

Buhari spoke in Sokoto on Saturday when he inaugurated the Kalambaina 500 housing estate built by the state government at the cost N4.8 billion.

According to him, in spite of the challenges, we are determined to overcome them and fight corruption.

“The administration will continue to bring development to Nigerians, improve security and welfare of Nigerians.”

The president noted that Nigeria had in the early 1960s witnessed reputable peace, culture of discipline and commitment to national development.

“Unfortunately, the situation had changed now, but we are committed to taking Nigeria to greatness.

“The relevance of the caliphate in the scheme of things in Nigeria cannot be over emphasised,” Buhari added.

Buhari further stressed the need to give all Nigerians equal opportunities for self actualisation.

The President also urged Nigerians to continue to work for sustainable peace, unity and socioeconomic progress of the country.

The President commended the Sultan of Sokoto for being a fearless and tireless peacemaker and bridge builder within and outside Nigeria.

He also hailed the sustained support and cooperation of the traditional rulers and the state governments to the Federal Government.

Buhari also commended Gov. Aminu Tambuwal for executing the project, and urged the beneficiaries to make good use of the facilities.

Tambuwal said that the houses were built as part of efforts to fulfil his campaign promises to the people.

The governor hailed Buhari for his support to the states, noting that the modest achievements were attributable to this gesture.

The Commissioner for Lands and Housing, Bello Gwiwa, said that the estate was provided with road networks, water facilities and school networks, among others.

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, among others attended the event.
