Nigeria: Buhari – We Have No Other Country

President Muhammadu Buhari has told Nigerians that they have no other country, saying nobody will solve the nation’s problems for them.

Buhari was speaking at the New Banquet Hall of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja yesterday while hosting Muslim clerics to a Ramadan dinner.

He said: “I’m very pleased we’ve actually met. Before the Ramadan, I met our Christians brothers from all over the country and we exchanged ideas with them. I’m very pleased we realized that this is our problem; the country’s problem is our problem. Nobody will solve it for us. We pray very hard to God. We work very hard, and let’s continue that way.

“I believe the riches God endows unto Nigeria, we, our children, great grand children will realise that If we’ve problems, this is the only country we have. I said it more 30 years ago. We quickly go out, we go to pray in Saudi Arabia, we go maybe to other developed countries, but this is home. This is where God put us, and we’ve to stay here and pray many times for God to guide us so that we can leave a better country to the next generation.”

The Chief Imam of Zone Three Juma’at Mosque, Tajudeen Mohammad, urged the president to take radical measures to solve the current insecurity.
