'I won't abuse your trust' - Buhari tells Nigerians in Diaspora
Apr 16 2018 by Kathy Alvarado
Meanwhile, the Premium Times says this meeting reaffirms Nigeria's strategic position in Africa - which was already illustrated when Mr Trump called Mr Buhari before any other African president following his inauguration as the U.S. president.
"It is shocking that rather than being penitent and responsive to the views of the citizens, the presidency has resorted to abusing majority of Nigerians, who had put their trust and confidence in President Muhammadu Buhari, but today, are expressing disappointment with the fact that his administration has failed abysmally".
While in Britain, the president is billed to hold discussions on Nigeria - British relations with Prime Minister Mrs Theresa May, prior to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings scheduled for April 18 to 20.
"If in the course of investigations, it (Buhari Presidency) discovered that the insurgents were from outside Nigeria, why is the government reportedly paying ransoms to them and even considering amnesty options?"
"Failure of some of the leadership we had in the past led to our not being able to capitalise on resources to improve the lot of the people", the President said.
"I wonder how all those things could have happened to our country".
He said, "You met a hard situation, but you have overcome majority". It shows you as a worthy general.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that President Buhari, who is on official visit to London had on Wednesday met with the Archbishop of Canterbury, His Grace Justin Welby in London where he explained why he declared his intention to run for another term in office.
The party urged "President Buhari to resist the temptation of seeking to impress world leaders with false performance indices, but should present the real situation, particularly the pitiable state of our economy, escalated insecurity, human rights abuses, daily bloodletting, persecution of opposition and erosion of democratic values in the last three years". In this case, ask the President if he was the one who elected himself.
President Buhari was the first African leader Trump called on phone following his inauguration as the USA president. However, while blaming past leaders, he should not forget to blame himself since he also ruled Nigeria in the past.
