Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday revealed why he said “I belong to everybody and belong to nobody” during his swearing in after he won the 2015 presidential election.
Buhari who spoke at a state dinner organized in his honour by the Kano state Government reiterated his commitment to Nigerians saying they are the primary purpose of his government.
This was contained in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
He said, “My problem is Nigeria and I have been involved in almost all the instability Nigeria experienced – the civil war, the coups and counter- coups.
“That was why I said during my swearing- in that ‘I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody’.”
Buhari further congratulated Governor Abdullahi Ganduje on his development strides in the state.
He called on other political office holders to emulate and support the state governor.
He added, “He is a great politician and I am afraid I am still learning.”
The President reaffirmed that his message at his inaugural address would continue to guide his stewardship to Nigerians.
