Buhari said he will handle state resources with utmost responsibility and honesty. The president elect made this statement while receiving a delegation of the people of his home state, Kastina, who came to congratulate him on his election as President at his campaign office in Abuja, on Saturday, April 4, 2015.
Buhari said he’s sad that the citizens had been impoverished by 16 year maladministration by the People’s Democratic Party despite that the country received more income in the period than at any other time in the country’s history.
Buhari said savings from his war against corruption would be ploughed into education, with the objective of empowering the citizens.
The director of media and publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Organization, Mr Garba Shehu quoted Buhari as saying “If you give education to a man or woman, you have empowered them to be productive. There is no better way to empowerment”
The leaders of the delegation included the state Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Katsina State, Mustapha Inuwa; a former Governor of Katsina, Saidu Barda; a leading Muslim cleric; a representative of federal legislators; and a representative of the traditional institutions in the state.
