President Muhammadu Buhari has made it clear that he is not bothered about those who defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In an interactive session last night, Sunday, with a cross section of Nigerians residence in Togo, President Buhari said that his strength lied in the hand of God and with the ordinary Nigerians who appreciate the performance of his government.
According to him, the issue of defection by some politicians cannot affect the focus of his government in the areas of ensuring better and secured life for the citizenry.
The President insisted that those who looted the country’s treasury must be made to face the law and return the loots.
He said that as a democrat, he would follow the due legal process, adding that measures are being taken to sell off confirmed illegally acquired properties and the proceeds put in the treasury.
Buhari recounted the sorry state he met the economy, including dilapidated infrastructure despite huge revenues that accrued from oil sector in 16 years of the PDP in government.
He said that the fact that millions of ordinary Nigerians understand the efforts he had made to pull the country from economic collapse made him to feel happy “and not bothered about those who defected.”
Earlier, the Nigerian community in Togo had commended President Buhari for the various achievements his government had recorded so far, even as they appealed to him to develop Seme border to ease trade link between Nigeria and Togo.
“With Buhari as President, Nigerians are proud anywhere they are in the world now, ” they said.
