President Muhammadu Buhari said on Thursday that he will persuade Nigerians that he cares about them.
During an interview with Arise TV, the president stated that growth is needed in the Northwest, Southwest, and Southeast.
President Buhari further claimed that when his presidency ends in 2023, he will return to his farm.
According to Buhari:
“I have never ever abandoned my farm, when I leave, I will go back and try to keep myself busy.”
“Before then, I will try to convince Nigerians that I mean well for them.
“Visibly, we need progress in the Northwest, Southwest, Southeast. Right now, Northwest is troubled.
“I hope Nigerians would be fair to me.”
Meanwhile, the president has blamed the Boko Haram insurgency in the north on youth unemployment and poverty.
The Nigerian leader thought that the Boko Haram insurgency could be destroyed if unemployment and poverty were addressed.
After hearing this from Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum, he stated that the majority of Boko Haram members are Nigerians.
