“All I hope is for a peaceful conduct of the 2023 general elections as done in the APC primaries.” President Buhari said.

“I have been attending appeal court for three consecutive times regarding election from 2003 to 2012. I was finally lucky after Nigerians reasoned with me and voted for me in 2015.

“Thank God we are doing our very best; I am praying that God will once again give us the wisdom to do more for the betterment of our people.”

Buhari prayed that God will give him the wisdom and courage to deal with those behind Nigeria’s insecurity.

He expressed optimism that the citizens will understand the situation leaders always find themselves in, soliciting the support of Nigerians and asking citizens for good prayers and justice.

In his short remarks, the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari said that the issue of security is everywhere in the world, saying Nigeria is not an exception.

Masari however noted that prayer is the solution to all problems, urging Nigerians to always submit themselves to God.
