Governors elected under the ruling All Progressives Congress on Thursday expressed confidence in President Muhammadu Buhari‘s fight against insecurity.
The message was contained in a statement titled: 78th Birthday Felicitation to President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR,” signed by the Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum, Abubakar Bagudu, in Abuja, on Thursday.
Bagudu in the statement noted that the Governors joins the president and his family as well as Nigerians to celebrate the President’s 78th birthday.
The statement read in part, “We acknowledge and commend your leadership, vision and commitment to a united prosperous Nigeria. Recognising all the difficult periods we face as a nation, we are confident under your leadership, we will be able to resolve our national security challenges and restore peace in every part of the country.”
“As we wish you a happy birthday and also say a big thank you for your selfless service to our dear country, we reaffirm our commitment to work under your leadership with the abiding faith and belief that the initiatives of our APC Federal Government will meet all the expectations of Nigerians. We are very proud of your patriotic leadership. You are our role model and a source of inspiration.”
Meanwhile, students from Government Science Secondary School in Kankara LGA, Katsina State were abducted by bandits last Friday, the same day Buhari arrived in Daura, his hometown.
The President had traveled to Kastina State on a private visit when the incident happened.
