President Muhammadu Buhari has promised Nigerians that he will work harder in his second term and will not let Nigerians down.
He said this on Wednesday when the leadership of the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) paid him a congratulatory visit at the presidential villa in Abuja.
“This is my last lap, I will try to work harder. I assure you, I will not let you down,” Buhari said.
“I’m very appreciative of this visit, especially when I have seen some of my seniors, some of my colleagues and a couple of my juniors, among the team. This reminds me of the good old days when we were in the military.
“Actually, nobody dropped from the sky. For Arewa Consultative Forum to identify with me, having come from this geo-political zone, I’m very much appreciative of this.
“I’m very pleased with the address of the chairman who reminded me of the undertaken we made basically on the three important things my party campaigned on and succeeded.”
Adamu Fika, Chairman of the ACF’s Board of Trustees, who led the delegation, said the President had delivered some projects he was urged to do for the north.
He mentioned them to be the Baro Dry Port, Mambilla Hydro Power plant, road construction and rehabilitation, oil and gas exploration as well as improved agriculture.
He said the President had delivered the Baro Dry Port and had commenced work on the other projects.
