President Buhari today in Daura, declared that he would want to be remembered as a leader who kept his word that elections in Nigeria must be free, fair and credible.

Receiving Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State, who came to formally inform him of his election victory in last Saturday’s Governorship poll, the President commended Nigerians who heeded to his pre-election appeals to cast their votes peacefully.

The President who described last Saturday’s Governorship and State Assembly elections across the country as largely successful said:

‘‘I have maintained a position that elections must be free and fair and people have the right to make their choices and vote their consciences. I am happy they understood the message and did just that.

‘‘Power is a public trust that belongs to the people. Power is not by strength or wisdom but by Providence. Elected persons must be fair and just. This is the legacy I want to leave behind. A leader must be fair and just. All leaders should strive to do that.’’

Governor Masari, who was accompanied by officials of the All Progressives Congress (APC) party in Katsina State, thanked the President and the party for the support which led to his decisive victory on March 9.

The governor pledged to work for the good of the people of Katsina State, in line with the vision of the Next Level government at the centre.

Legacy my foot. "You can fool some people sometimes, but you can't fool all the people all the time". "A word is enough for the wise", that is for those who are wise.

We know that Buhari will not say this himself because we knew he's dementia, treatment can help but this condition can't be cured. He don't listen he have ears and eyes problems. His assistances that are writing and putting this in the media are not doing him any good.
