"If anybody has a country to go to, let him go" - President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has said if anybody has a country to go to, let him go, as "we will stay here and salvage our country."

According to a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, Buhari stated this on Tuesday, November 1st, at the State House in Abuja during a high-level meeting with leaders and other stakeholders to seek ways to end the militancy and the sabotage of oil infrastructure in the Niger Delta region.
The President, who did not read from a prepared speech, pitched a vision of unity and progress for the country in which peace reigns. He said peace, security, investment and prosperity are linked together, adding that "if we give peace a chance, investors will come here to invest. Nobody will invest in an insecure environment"

In a speech dripping with nationalist fervor, President Buhari said the problems his administration found on the ground were many, as illustrated in collapse of oil prices, inability of 27 of the 36 states of the Federation to pay salaries, absence of savings to fall back and having to deal with an elite who didn’t seem to care. All these, he said, made his government to conclude that: "life as usual is no longer affordable."

While welcoming the 16-point request presented for negotiation by the Niger Delta leaders, President Buhari said he was still expecting reports from officials he had instructed to review the implementation of the Amnesty program to determine where government fell short so that amends can be made.

The President said the service chiefs were putting together their own assessment of the militancy situation, saying “when I have these reports, including this one (just presented), we will revisit the situation (in the region) to ensure that we succeed this time."

He however cautioned the leaders of the Delta that they had more to do than anyone else to bring peace to the region, given the influence they have on militant groups.
He expressed the determination of his administration to stay focused on its key campaign promises of securing the country, fighting corruption and creating jobs through the improvement of the economy.
"We are determined to make life comfortable and affordable to all Nigerians. If anybody has a country to go to, let him go, we will stay here and salvage our country."
The President who delivered his report card on the war against corruption and the efforts to secure the country repeated his call to the Niger Delta leaders to join the administration in bringing peace to the troubled region.
"Please Your Excellencies, Your Majesties, Distinguished ladies and gentlemen; we all have our individual constituencies. Let us try to pacify our constituencies. Let us first recover our country, secure the country and let us invite people who will invest. Let us create jobs for our people and let us be accountable to our people where we are sitting on treasuries, whether it is local government, state or the center. We should ensure that we rebuild this country. Nobody wants to fail. So, the only way out is, if people understand and believe that we are doing our best at all levels, then we will have some peace. But it they have reason to doubt our performance and sincerity, then we will have problem.

Believably TRUE talk! Agitation for 'urgent development' in d Niger Delta shd have been clamoured for b4 this time.The activities of d militants are obviously political. Even most of them & their traditional rulers I believe are still fighting for their pockets & NOT for d whole Niger Deltans,that's it.Developments in the regions would take many years based on a blue print to be reviewed this time around which had been neglected by d previous govts regime.Its so pathetic nobody in d then govt and even d selfish militants/traditional rulers (thieves) cared about d deplorable state of d Niger Delta regions.All d same,may God grant wisdom 2d present govt to tackle d situations, amen!

My boyfriend is a fool. He is so f***ing broke for almost a year we have been together he hasn't provide 10kobo in this relationship I'm only the one spending and his so comfortable like is my right. He takes my money without any notice is so annoying. To crown it up he carry vuhari for head like gala seller. That his a good president. Very stupid man that don't have any money doesn't pay rent or feed himself. I'm so tired of been a die hard gf to this unsupportive fool. His just by my side now praising vuhari. Because his not the one buying a bag of rice for 24,000. I will dump him cos I'm tired when I met him I thought he had plans for his life but all he does is sleep, watch movies, talk like a fool, eat, flirt with girls on whatsapp. I'm tired

Buhari is mad. He should take his fulani herdsmen kindred back to Niger and Libya before he resigns. He is rude and deluded. Has Nigeria government ever cared for any citizen let alone caring for elite? He should sharrap.

They have been dying in the mediterrenean even in the time of Jonathan. People have been travelling abroad even in the time of Aguyi Ironsi. So dont come here to blame it on this administration.
