The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has revealed how President Muhammadu Buhari worries about the problems of Nigeria, saying the president sleeps and wakes thinking of Nigeria and the way forward.
Addressing journalists in Ilorin, Kwara State on Saturday in commemoration of President Buhari’s 79th birthday, Mohammed said that the President has also set the country on a trajectory of growth and development.
“Despite a myriad of security challenges, and amidst dwindling national earnings and a crippling global pandemic, he has racked up a number of achievements, most of them unprecedented.
“As I said recently, his achievements may not seem too obvious now, especially with naysayers, sponsored attackers, and desperate opposition politicians unrelenting in their craft, but posterity will surely be kind to this man, whose life has meant service to his fatherland, a man who goes to bed at night and wakes up in the morning thinking about Nigeria. He fought a war to keep Nigeria together, and that explains his passion for the country’s unity.
“It is said that everything happens for a reason. That Buhari is in charge of Nigeria at this time is not mere happenstance. His years in the military that saw him reaching the peak of his career; his various positions within and outside the military, his global exposure, his unmatched demeanour, and, above all, his wisdom have all helped to stabilise Nigeria at the most difficult of times.
“I believe God has a reason for keeping him alive when many had written him off as dead,” he said.
