President Buhari Tells South East Leaders That He Wants To Be Remembered As A President Who Stabilized Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday in Owerri said that he would want to be remembered as the President who stabilised Nigeria in the area of security, economic prosperity and triumph over corruption.

The President, who spoke at a town hall meeting with South East leaders during his one-day official visit to Imo State, said with less than two years left in his eight-year tenure as President, security still remains a major priority for his administration.

‘‘If there is no security, there is nothing anyone can do no matter how much you try or the initiative you have.
‘‘Security is number one priority and then the economy. When people feel secure they will mind their own business,’’ he said.
The President told South-East leaders that while fighting corruption in Nigeria had become very sophisticated and difficult, he would continue to strive to leave a lasting legacy of integrity and accountability in the system.

‘‘Nobody can accuse me of having companies or mansions anywhere in the country and I thank God that I try to keep myself as clean as possible, so that I cannot be taken hostage.
‘‘I will do my best to ensure that Nigerians that try hard, succeed in their efforts,’’ he said.

On the forthcoming 2023 elections, the President reaffirmed his commitment to free, fair and credible polls, urging the leaders to honestly educate their constituencies on the need to hold their elected representatives accountable.
Acknowledging the resourcefulness and enterprising spirit of Igbo people, the President said:

‘‘The fundamental thing about the Igbo people is that there is no town you will visit in Nigeria without seeing the Igbos being in-charge of either infrastructure or pharmaceutical industry.
‘‘Therefore, it is unthinkable for me that any Igbo man would consider himself not to be a part of Nigeria.
‘‘The evidence is there for everyone to see that Igbos are in charge of Nigeria’s economy.’’
Noting that no country can make any meaningful progress without the development of infrastructure, the President expressed regret that successive governments at the Federal level contributed to the decay of critical infrastructure in the country.

.......................‘‘I firmly believe that when you get infrastructure right, Nigerians will mind their own businesses,’’ he said, adding that as a group, the Igbos sta..........nd to benefit more from the ongoing development of infrastructure in the country because ‘‘they are more enterprising.’’

President Buhari had earlier commissioned four projects executed by Governor Hope Uzodinma, including the Naze/Ihiagwa/Nekede/Obinze link road, the Balloon Driven/Flood Control drainage at Dick Tiger Road, the Egbeada Bypass road and the New Exco-Chambers, Government House, Owerri.

Addressing Imo residents at the commissioning of Egbeada bypass named after a prominent son of the State, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, the President said he was very impressed with the level of work done by the State government.
‘‘I am very pleased with what I have seen and I assure you that I will support Imo State within the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,’’ .


  1. He will be surely remembered ,he should have no fear about that, but as a leader that brought adverse change to the country during his tenure

  2. God is watching this!!buhari u are Evil.All definition of something evil,someone evil, moments of evil is called buhari

  3. Who are the South East leaders? Hope? Umahi? Iwuanyanwu? Who exactly? Bia Lifeless, you should be ashamed of yourself. You so much irritate us to the point we don't even want to breath same air as you. The same hatred you dispatch to us is proportionally transmitted back to you. We shall despise you till the end of time.

    1. He wasn't received yesterday by the Igbo nation rather by the supreme Court administrator and his gangs. Ohaneze didn't grace it, neither did our mothers dance for his reception. Even the Eastern governors boycotted him except Umahi who's already headed towards destruction.

    2. Somebody asked why there was so much focus on his trousers than on issues relating to the visit. Like what did he go to do. Was it worth the time and expenses. Was the project completed already by the former Governor, but merely white washed and passed-off by the current Governor. What was the significance of the empty streets as you have just highlighted. Etc.

      Some people think the visit was a missed opportunity.

  4. He needs to go back to London. The brain needs to b recharged.

  5. I tire for we worry, we go remember you for everything... mitchew

  6. Is he trying trying his hands on comedy?

  7. I feel to him ,he thinks his doing his us,his best isnt good for us.
    Our real leader is Christ ,with HIM life is made easy...

  8. You will surely be remembered Mr President

  9. Story story,once upon a time, time time

  10. It will be a remembrance like never before
