President Muhammadu Buhari says his administration will not hide anything from Nigerians in its resolute commitment to restoring the economic fortunes of the country and delivering prosperity to her citizens.

The President said this while receiving the Northern Christian Leaders Eagles Eyes Forum at the State House in Abuja on Friday.

According presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, the President appealed to the religious leaders not to lose hope in the unity, stability and progress of the country, adding that the Federal Government would continue to prioritise the safety of lives and property.

He pledged that his government would also equip Nigerian farmers with the right tools, technology and techniques to boost agriculture.

“You must tell your followers the truth about the country. We have nothing to hide because we have no other country but Nigeria,” the President was quoted as saying.

“Tell them to give us a chance to stabilise the country. Your concern for the security, unemployment, anti-corruption campaign and the frequent altercations between herdsmen and farmers are genuine concerns.

“I know the Ministry of Agriculture and the Governors Forum are doing a lot to resolve the lingering crisis between herdsmen and farmers, we must give them a chance,” he added.



    The President also thanked the Christian leaders for their support to the anti-corruption campaign and other policies geared towards reviving the economy.

    He described as saddening that some people stole what belonged to all Nigerians and stashed them in their personal accounts, but added that that people like these are already regretting it and “they will regret more.”

    Pastor Aminchi Habu, leader of the delegation, called on Nigerians to support the President’s anti-corruption war and his vision to restore the lost glory of Nigeria.

    He expressed optimism that the Buhari administration will bring about a “new Nigeria where the fear of bribery, corruption and extortion is the beginning of wisdom” and where tribalism, religion and ethnicity is no longer a barrier that separates us but a bond that unites us for a greater tomorrow.”
