The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) and League of Democratic Nigerians (LDN) have urged the president-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari to make welfare of Nigerian citizens the priority of his government as soon as he takes over on May 29.
Presidents of Nigerian students’ umbrella body Comrade Ali Wali and LDN Comrade Nazir Galadanchi in their separate congratulatory messages to Buhari were unanimous in urging him to hit the ground running and roll out plans to bring back Nigerian economy on track.
Wali said that though there are arduous tasks before the in-coming President-elect, he must ensure that the standard of living of the ordinary Nigerians who fought for his success at the poll must be improved.
“General Buhari's success is the fruit of resilience and determination we also plead with him to focus on the nation's education sector which is the bedrock of success by any nation. We want to on behalf of Nigerian students congratulate the president-elect and peoples president, General Muhammadu Buhari for this victory at the last election. Your victory is no doubt the result of yourself belief, determination, resilience and above of all your love for your country. We also pledge to work with you to achieve your cardinal objectives,” he said.
On his part Galadanchi said Buhari’s victory has shown that peaceful change is achievable through the ballot and that the success of last Saturday’s election was only possible through the magnanimous leadership of Gen. Buhari.
“With Gen. Buhari at realm of affairs, we look forward to a new Nigeria where rule of law and due process works. We expect a corrupt free Nigeria where merit and hard-work pays with reformed government institutions and infrastructural developments. We urge the General to be a firm on tackling insecurities that stem from Boko Haram insurgency in the north east, ethno-religious crises in the north central, kidnapping in the south east and militancy in the south-south, all these combined have cost Nigeria more lives than the civil war. We employ him to use his vast experience to unite all Nigeria that have been bitterly divided,” he added.
