#NigeriaAt59: ‘Change’ Can Only Be Delivered If We Are United – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday urged Nigerians to remain committed to achieving the positive and enduring change that is expected of his administration.
The President stated this while addressing the nation on its 59th anniversary.
Buhari noted that that the ‘change’ expected from his administration can only be possible if Nigerians are united.
The Nigerian Leader further appeal to the citizens to desist from lawless habits and be law-abiding.
“In the past four years, the majority of Nigerians have committed to Change for the Better. Indeed, this Administration was re-elected by Nigerians on a mandate to deliver positive and enduring Change – through maintaining our National Security; restoring sustainable and Inclusive Economic Growth and Development; and fighting Corruption against all internal and external threats.
“This Change can only be delivered if we are united in purpose, as individuals and as a nation. We must all remain committed to achieving this positive and enduring change.
“As I stated four years ago, “Change does not just happen… We must change our lawless habits, our attitude to public office and public trust… simply put, to bring about change, we must change ourselves by being law-abiding citizens.”
The President, noting the sacrifice of the past leaders and founders, which Nigeria has been built over the 59 years since Independence in 1960, said:
let us “rededicate ourselves to attaining the goals which we have set for ourselves: a united, prosperous and purposeful nation in the face of 21st-century opportunities and challenges.
