Buhari Frowns At People Who Blame Only Leaders For Nigeria’s Woes

President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has frowned at people who blame only the leaders for the woes that have been confronting the country.

“In Nigeria, there is the tendency to lay the blame for the state of affairs in the country on the doorsteps of the leaders alone.

“Yes, leaders have a major role to play in providing direction and the enabling environment. However, the citizens’ role also is vital in our attaining meaningful transformation of any society.”

President Buhari who made these points today, Thursday, at the graduation ceremony of Senior Course 40 of the Armed Forces Command and Staff College, Jaji in Kaduna State, assured Nigerians that his government is determined to return Nigeria on the path of peace and prosperity.

He recalled that at the inception of this administration, he made three key promises to Nigerians, one of which was to address the various security challenges facing the country and the other was to reposition the nation’s economy “and thirdly to fight the serious challenge of corruption which had eaten so deep into the very fabric that sustains our nation.

“On the issue of security, we recognize that security challenges abound in all countries of the world including Nigeria. I am certain that with the consistent efforts of our security agencies, these challenges shall be considerably mitigated and minimized.”

The President told the graduating students that Nigeria expected the best from them in terms of commitment to their fatherland as the country had already made a lot of investment into their training.

“The highest standard of competence and professionalism is expected of you considering the level of training you have received through this course. Go out there and make your honest contributions to the discharge of the constitutional responsibilities of the Armed Forces of Nigeria and be good ambassadors of the Armed Forces Command and Staff College.” Buhari acknowledged that
