Governor Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa State has said Nigerians have nothing to do about the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari because the President has come to stay.
The governor, who made the remark, on Wednesday in Lafia, the state capital described Buhari as the best thing that ever happened to the nation.
He also described Buhari as the most patriotic Nigerian for standing firm and insisting on the indivisibility of Nigeria despite several agitations by various groups across the country.
According to Al-Makura, Buhari’s stance on the unity of the country was timely, highly mature and the best decision in spite of the various difference in the country.
He said, “I want to commend the president for the highly matured and fundamental speech. Nothing could be better than that for the country. People are talking about some superficial things but if you study deeply at the speech of the president, it has stated that we have nowhere than this country.
“If you like it or not, there is nothing you can do about the Buhari’s presidency, It has happened and we have agreed to come together to be an indivisible one united country. From 1914, when North and South were amalgamated, we became one country
“Mr President is one Nigeria I know he is the most patriotic and his concern is not just about the rich and mighty but also the vulnerable, the people deprived, the people that cannot fend for themselves, people who have no means to protect their future.
“The question we should be asking ourselves is that after staying together for more than 100 years, isn’t it too late in the day for anybody to start thinking of anything otherwise. Rather, we should use those ideas for the sustenance of this country
”Mr. President has decided to make statement that every patriotic Nigerian should consider him as a true Nigerian who wants a better Nigeria. He speech should be taken seriously and see what we can do to ensure that our difference becomes our strength.”
