I am achieving my objectives as President - Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he is achieving his objectives of making Nigerians productive.

He said this on Saturday, when he met with serving corps members in Daura, Kastina state where he stayed to celebrate the Sallah festivities.

He mentioned that Nigerians took advantage of their productivity when he closed the borders for about two years, stopped the importation of rice, several people took to agriculture.

Elated Buhari said "we are now feeding ourselves and some rice being exported".

“I hope the rest of Nigerians that are making trouble, the terrorists and so on, will understand that Nigeria’s problem is people to be productive in terms of producing the food we eat, look at when we closed our borders for about two years, stopped the importation of rice, a lot of people had gone back to the land and they haven’t regretted it, we are now feeding ourselves and some rice being exported. So this is my objective and I am achieving it,” he stated.

“My only problem is that there are still people who really benefit from killing other people and stealing and so on.”

Buhari charged the youth to look beyond culture, ethnicity and religion in relating with one another and be tolerant to each other.

“It’s very good for Nigerian seeing that Corps members posted to Maiduguri, Sokoto, or here in Katsina State.

“Before NYSC, there were people of Lagos who had never gone out of the Lagos island, and then they found themselves in Maiduguri, or Sokoto or here, I think is very very good for Nigeria.

“Nigeria is so vast culturally, ethnically and religiously, and we have to learn tolerance with each other.

“So I congratulated you for coming here to the other end of Nigeria from wherever you come, I wish you a successful NYSC camp.

“Now we are into a time if you cooperate with technology because government job is no longer there,” the President said.
