Under me, your money will be safe –Buhari

President-elect, General Mu­hammadu Bu­hari, has given assurances to Nigerians that he would handle state resources with ut­most responsibility and honesty and that he will not condone the looting of public resources.

Speaking while receiving a delegation of the people of his home state, Katsina, who came to congratulate him on his election as President of Nigeria, General Buhari re­gretted that the citizens had been made poorer by the 16 years of PDP maladministra­tion in spite of the fact that the country received more income in that period than at any other time.

Buhari said savings from his war against corruption would be ploughed into edu­cation with the objective of empowering the citizens.

“If you give education to a man or woman, you have empowered them to be pro­ductive. There is no better way to empowerment,” Bu­hari asserted.

The President-elect, who exchanged banters with old schoolmates and kinsmen alike, among the 130-odd delegation spoke about his resolve to work with all Ni­gerians to pull the citizens out of the current hardships facing them.

Buhari also expressed his commitment to multi-party democracy as the best system of government and appealed to all citizens to imbibe cour­age and perseverance, virtues he said, stood him in good stead in bringing victory to him, after failing three times in the past presidential elec­tions.

The leaders of the delega­tion who spoke on the occa­sion included the state Chair­man of the Katsina State chapter of the All Progres­sives Congress (APC), Engi­neer Mustapha Mohammed Inuwa; a former governor of the state, Alhaji Saidu Barda, a leading Muslim cleric, a representative of federal leg­islators and a representative of the traditional institutions in the state.

They all pledged their sup­port and commitment to the in-coming Buhari adminis­tration and promised to avoid the mistakes of others by im­bibing humility and respect for all sections of the country.
