President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his commitment to serve Nigeria is a payback for the love Nigerians have shown him.
A statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said Buhari made the statement at the palace of Shehu of Borno while on a visit to the state on Thursday.
He said; “My commitment to serve Nigerians is a payback for the love shown to me.
“I started my political adventure in Maiduguri and I always look forward to coming here.”
The president also visited troops in Operation HADIN KAI at the Maimalari Cantonment, Borno state.
He commended the troops for defending the country against insurgents, adding that there is still much work to be done to restore peace to war ravaged North East.
“Your courage and gallantry will continue to inspire others, as they echo into the future.
“While I commend your resilience, let me remind you that there is still a lot of work to be done, to completely restore peace to the North-East, stem the activities of armed bandits in the North-West and North-Central, as well as deal with other security challenges across the country,” he said.
