Recounting the support he got during his presidential campaign, Buhari said he knew he needed to serve Nigerians to the best of his ability.

“The number of people that turned out to see me, some waiting for 10 hours in the sun, was more than anyone could buy, or force. They just wanted to see this Buhari was. People wonder why Nigerians accept me, despite not being rich. I wonder, too,” Buhari said.

“I felt I just have to serve Nigeria and Nigerians to the best of my ability.”

The president further said that Nigerians are lucky and should congratulate themselves despite the challenges posed to tear the country apart.

He urged leaders to respect the people, from the lowest to the highest, “so that it becomes a duty to them (the people) to pay back to the leadership”.

Respect for the people, according to the president, should come in allowing them “to choose they like as their leaders, irrespective of political party or religion”.
