Following the meeting of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Governors with President Muhammadu Buhari in Daura, Katsina State, the President has stated that historians should be factual in keeping record of his administration, as he has achieved a lot.
This was reportedly disclosed this in a statement by Garba Shehu, the SSA to the President on Media and Publicity on Thursday.
According to the statement, “The future of the country would be shaped by the diligence and honesty of those who document history and provide analysis of situations, knowing the value of what obtained in the past, and afterwards.”
The statement read that, “It would be unfortunate to mislead electorate with lies, and personal bias, reiterating the need to put the larger interest of the country beyond other colorations.’
It added that, “For the time remaining, and for those who have one more term in office based on the provision of the constitution, the elections are important to the parties. Intellectuals and historians should be fair to us so that those who are looking for leadership positions will not exploit the political ignorance or lack of knowledge of the people.”
The President emphasized that, “We have done our best and thank God for what we have been able to achieve with the available resources, otherwise we would have been in trouble.”
He stressed that, “The subsequent development in the North West is the most amazing, where people who lived together, spoke same language and shared common faith started killing each other and rustling cows.’
Buhari stated that, “I had to change the security chiefs and we had to get down to the fundamentals of providing security. If you look at the situation in relation to time and resources, you will find out what we have been able to achieve.”
