About 100,000 youths from 46 associations gathered Saturday 18 March at the Palace of the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Farouk for a thanksgiving celebration for the safe return of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Present at the occasion was the representative of Katsina State Governor, Alhaji Ahmed Murzuk.
Murzuk said all those wishing the president dead were enemies of Nigeria, whose actions and pronouncements indicated that they had motives that were beyond politics.
He said the Katsina state government would continue to support the initiatives of the present administration, especially the fight against corruption and efforts aimed at diversifying the economy through agriculture.
Addressing Buhari supporters at the thanksgiving service the Secretary, Daura Youth Coalition, Alhaji Nura Baure said they are committed to ensuring the president’s well-being in the interest of all Nigerians
Baure said President Buhari is a mere mortal capable of falling sick or dying at the time appointed by his creator adding that a lot of fabricated information and misinformation on his health status are being bandied around in recent times.
Also in attendance is Alhaji Sani Alinem, the Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC) in Daura, who commended the youths for organising the rally, saying it is timely and very important.
He said the party would continue to support such moves with a view to promoting and projecting the good image of the President Buhari’s administration.
The Senator representing Katsina North Senator Mustapha Bukar commended those who helped to organize the rally.
He added that the senate would soon pass the 2017 budget to enable government to execute development projects.
His word, “President Buhari is doing very well. We will not hesitate to do what we need to do to reposition this country.”
