He told the Emir he was encouraged by the show of love at every campaign stop, which had indeed energised him to do more for the country.
‘‘The crowd I saw in every state we campaigned was not a rented one. Money cannot buy them. People turned out en-masse to listen to us and I am encouraged by the willingness of our people to freely choose leaders of their choice and further strengthen our democracy,’’ he said.
The President used the occasion of his homage to the Emir of Daura to emphasise his belief that quality education remains a veritable roadmap to achieve a brighter future for the country.
The President declared that all he had achieved in life was because of the education he received.
