On Friday, May, 10, Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, was awarded by the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governor’s forum in a ceremony organized by the Governors in his honour, in Abuja.
Receiving the award, Buhari thanked the Governors and tasked them on the need to embrace true federalism.
The President noted that it was high time the state heads played into the ideals of federalism at a political and democratic dispensation as this, where some scanty but privileged persons were exploiting and manipulating ethnic and religious front-lines for their selfish advantages. “We need to build bridges across the various divides”, he said.
Buhari urged the governors to support his anti-corruption agenda, and his administration’s programmes and policies in order to hasten development in the country.
