I Will Finish Strong – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his tenure will end on a good note.

Buhari said this on Monday in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on media, Femi Adesina.

He said, “I am gradually entering my final year in office. It is a period I intend to spend not only on consolidating the achievements of the past seven years but also on leaving a legacy for a united, peaceful, and prosperous Nigeria.

“I take this initiative to mean that you all intend to collaborate with this administration in that direction. For those among you who are politicians, you must look beyond gaining power to how you can leverage public positions in the process of societal change. To the businessmen and women among you, there is great glory in public service.”

Buhari, added that a more collaborative social model between elites in the country is being forged

“As we all know, I have been very critical of the Nigerian elites, essentially because some of us have not always demonstrated that we can rise above personal gain, political partisanship as well as ethnic and religious differences when the situation demands that we all speak and or act as one in the interest of our country.

“There are also many among our elites for whom profit remains the only motivation for any and every enterprise. But now, I feel heartened that a more collaborative social enterprise model for resolving our common challenges is being forged,” he said.
