The statement reads, “We salute Gen. Buhari, an exemplary leader who set a standard in integrity, which has so far, not been bested by any Nigerian leader. We salute his doggedness in the country’s political sphere, which has seen him become Nigerian Abraham Lincoln with a solid history of steadfastness in contesting the country’s presidential election and eventually emerging victorious in the very fourth try. We see this as a just reward for his proven honesty and integrity and a great lesson to every Nigerian both young and old.”
While expressing confidence in the ability of Buhari to attend to the clarion demands of Nigerians to arrest the drift of the Nigerian state and steer it again to prosperity after the disastrous voyage of the past 16 years, the body said that it firmly trust in the President-elect’s capability to once again instill honesty in the conduct of the governance in Nigeria.
