Niger Delta: Again Buhari appeals for patience, support of Nigerians


President Muhammadu Buhari has once again appealed for the support, understanding and patience of Nigerians and the international community as his administration explores the fastest means to end economic sabotage in the Niger Delta.

In his Eid El Fitr message to Nigerians on Tuesday Buhari promised that better days are ahead even as he remains grateful for their unflinching support to his administration.

“I also appeal for the support, understanding and patience of all Nigerians and our international partners as we explore the fastest means to end the economic sabotage in the Niger Delta and amicably resolve the conflicts within the region.
I promise you all better days ahead even as we remain grateful for your unflinching support to our administration.
” I am not unaware of what Nigerians are going through and I want to use this medium to commend the amazing sacrifices of Nigerians in the face of the temporary economic and social challenges and also reassure Nigerians that my administration is working assiduously towards providing basic needs and other amenities” the President said in his Sallah message signed by Presidential media aide, Femi Adesina.

He reaffirmed that his administration not relent in the fight against corruption and will ensure that all appropriate and legal measures are deplored to root out this malaise.

The President congratulated Muslims in Nigeria and around the world on the successful completion of this month-long spiritual journey of fasting, prayer and almsgiving in obedience to the Divine Command.

He appealed to Nigerians who have the means, to remember the millions of Nigerians who are suffering deprivation because of violence perpetrated by terrorists.

The President also commended the Armed Forces and security agencies for the gains recorded in the fight against terrorists and the rescue of hostages in the North East part of the country.
