The Nigerian Dream of Muhammadu Buhari


The Nigerian Dream of Muhammadu Buhari

I seek a Nigeria where Christians and Muslims may practise their faiths in peace
and security.


“I have always served Nigeria to the best of my ability. I have always tried to give more to the nation than it has given me. This is the principle of service that has guided my public life. Thus, I am not a rich person. I can’t give you a pocketful of dollars or naira to purchase your support. Even if I could, I would not do so. The fate of this nation is not up for sale.

“What I will give you, and this nation is all of my strength, commitment, sweat and toil in the service of the people. What I can give you is my all.

“I do not intend to rule Nigeria. I want to democratically govern it with your help. I seek a Nigeria where Christians and Muslims may practise their faiths in peace and security; a Nigeria that is just and where corruption no longer trespasses into our institutions and national behavior and a Nigeria where our diversity could be used for our national prosperity.

“Nigeria is our home. Let us now turn it into the great nation we know it can and should be.”

~ Major-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2015 Election at the 2014 All Progressive Congress, APC's National Convention at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos, Nigeria.
