The Lamido of Adamawa, Muhammadu Barkindo Aliyu Mustapha, has declared that President Muhammadu Buhari needed beyond four years in office.
According to the royal father, Buhari needed more time to complete what he started in the country.
Adamawa is the country home of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, also known as Turakin Adamawa.
Speaking on Thursday when Buhari paid a courtesy visit to his palace in Yola, the monarch lauded Buhari for his giant strides and inroads he recorded in various fields, such as economy, security, and fight against corruption
Femi Adesina, spokesperson to Buhari, quoted the Lamido as saying, “I would like to use this opportunity on behalf of my humble self, members of my Council and the entire people of Adamawa to acknowledge with immeasurable thanks and congratulate you on keeping faith with the contract you entered with our people and, indeed, Nigerians.
“The giant strides and inroads you recorded in various fields of our endeavours such as economy, security, and fight against corruption, which still remain the cornerstone of your agenda, would not have been made possible if not for your resilient focus, passion, and love for the country.
“Mr President, there is no doubt that much has been achieved during your present tenure but certainly you need more time to actualize your dream for a better Nigeria. This, therefore, calls for all and sundry to rally round you and allow you to get to the next level to enable you consolidate the various laudable programs of your party.”
