Opposition cannot distract us from good work we are doing – President Buhari  

President Buhari receives in audience some APC State Governors, National and State Assembly members including Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha, Katsina State Governor Bello Masari, Senator Kabiru Gaya and Kano State Governor Umar Abdullahi Ganduje in Daura Katsina State on 23rd Aug 2018

President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday in Daura said the combined efforts of defectors and their backers in the opposition will not distract his administration from the good work it is doing for the benefit and development of Nigeria.

President Buhari stressed that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has the full understanding of Nigeria’s challenges and is encouraged by the support of Nigerians in addressing them.

The President, according to a statement by Garba Shehu, his Senior Special Assistant (Media & Publicity), spoke at a lunch with some APC Governors accompanied by some members of the National and State assemblies and commissioners.

‘‘We are always encouraged when all our constituents are happy with the work we are doing and our genuine efforts to make sure that what we campaigned for in 2015 is still very much in our minds and we have not lost focus.

‘‘In terms of security, economy and the fight against corruption we have maintained focus. Even the opposition with all their resources cannot fault our identification of Nigeria’s priorities and the efforts being made to better them.

‘‘We will continue to do what we ought to do in the leadership position God has placed us and we thank the constituents for the support,’’ he said.

On the defections within the major political parties, the President reiterated his earlier message to them: ‘‘for those who have decided to change camp for whatever reason, we wish them good luck.’’

In his remarks, the leader of the delegation and Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State commended the President for his great efforts in keeping the nation together through visionary leadership.

He noted that President Buhari had remained focused and unshaken by situations and circumstances, adding that ‘‘it shows that your administration is approved by God.’’

Okorocha told the President, ‘‘we are here to encourage you to keep doing what you are doing as Nigerians are very very pleased with you.

‘‘We also want to inform you that we had wonderful and peaceful Sallah celebration across the country because of security of lives and property you have guaranteed in our nation.’’

Governor Okorocha was accompanied by the Governors of Katsina, Kebbi, Kano and Niger States.
