Buhari mocks Govs that lost Senatorial bids
According to President Muhammadu Buhari, the elections in 2023 demonstrated the increasing strength of Nigeria’s democracy as well as the sophistication of the Nigerian voter when it comes to selecting leaders.
Malam Garba Shehu, his media aide, stated in Abuja on Thursday that the president made the remark while hosting Alhaji Muhammad Sunusi, the newly installed Emir of Dutse, who visited him.
Buhari noticed that the disappointment of 10 sitting lead representatives to get chosen into the Senate showed that there could have been not generally a reliable course to control and the citizen is genuinely the lord with regards to decisions.
It is evidence of our democracy’s maturity and the electorate’s incredible sophistication.
“What surprised me was that the typically underappreciated ordinary citizen made a point of his political understanding of the situation.
The usual assumption is that you serve as governor for eight years before going to the Senate to end your career.
The Nigerian voter should no longer be underestimated. As a result, politics will become more difficult,” the president noted.
The president made a promise to do his best for the state during his remaining time in office after listening to the emir, who listed projects that the Buhari administration had completed in Jigawa and requested more.
He also said he would tell Bola Tinubu, the new president, about the requests and said that the water shortage in Dutse was a problem.
The president told the emir and his entourage that he and the nation would continue to miss Alhaji Nuhu Sunusi, the late emir and that he would continue to pray for his repose.
Alhaji Muhammad Hamim, the emir and leader of the delegation, thanked the Buhari administration for supporting Jigawa’s success in rice production and for approving a Kano-Dutse rail link.
In addition, the traditional ruler praised the president for bringing peace to the state, the entire nation, and neighboring nations that had previously experienced insecurity.
Prior to the upgrade of the Army Battalion in Dutse to a full military brigade, Emir Sunusi requested that the president address the severe water shortage in the capital of Jigawa. ( NAN)
