WIFE of the president, Hajia Aisha Buhari, has said President Muhammadu Buhari cannot work alone to succeed in governing the country, adding that he needs the help of governors, their wives and members of the progressive party.
She disclosed this during the kick-off of distribution of foods and household utensils to returnees from internally displaced persons (IDP) camps, to fast track their resettlement in their communities.
Hajia Buhari, who was accompanied by wives of the Chief of Air Staff, that of Inspector-General of Police and former deputy governor of Plateau State, Mrs Pauline Tallen, at Beneshiek, headquarters of Kaga Local Government area of Borno State, said fund for the procurement of the foods were sourced from the donations from well-meaning Nigerians, through her Get-Involve-Programme, a unit of her Future-Assured-Project.
She said she was interested in the success of the Federal Government led by her husband, adding that “what I am after in particular is the success of my husband’s administration and he can’t do it alone except with the help of the governors, their wives and all members of our progressive party.”
Hajia Buhari said she was happy that the event took place, noting that it was in fulfillment of her husband’s campaign promise to resettle displaced victims of Boko Haram insurgency and rescue all citizens abducted or held by Boko Haram, including the Chibok girls.
“We thank almighty Allah that we have started fulfilling some of the campaign promises that we made. This is the essence of leadership; you make a promise and then fulfill it. We thank my dear husband who make sure peace is returning to the North-East states,” she said.
Wife of Borno State governor, Nana Shettima, commended Hajia Buhari for the gifts, adding that it was the third time she would visit the state to attend to the humanitarian challenges of Borno people.
