The government is imperfect, as Aisha Buhari has apologized to Nigerians for the unrest and hardships
Hajia Aisha Buhari, the president’s wife, has expressed regret to Nigerians for the hardship and security issues the nation is now facing.
The 62nd Independence Day Special Juma’at Prayer and Public Lecture, with the topic “Shura: The Islamic Foundation of True Democracy,” was held at the National Mosque Conference Hall in Abuja on Friday, September 30. The First Lady delivered the apology at that time.
She claims that the depreciation of the naira and the ongoing decline in the foreign currency rate have had an impact on the economy and created several challenges for Nigerians in the areas of education, health, and other daily activities.
She praised the military and other security forces, however, and wished them continuing success in their campaign against terrorists, bandits, and kidnappers.
She urged Nigerians to pray for a smooth election and transition plan. “Your Excellencies, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, as you may be aware, this administration is making its leave and probably seeing the final anniversary of the dictatorship, I pray,” she added.
“Even if the administration may not have been flawless, I want to use this opportunity to ask for forgiveness from the Ulamas and Nigerians as a whole. To make Nigeria great, we all must cooperate.
“Your Excellencies, distinguished guests, it is also apparent that the naira is being evaluated, and the impact of the foreign exchange rate on our economy has resulted in significant hardship and challenges for our citizens’ day-to-day activities in the areas of education, health, and other daily activities.
“Fighting against security threats requires unity. Although the government’s efforts are much appreciated, it is crucial to be aware that other initiatives, including those promoting agriculture, entrepreneurship, and the involvement of young people and women, have been put in place to mitigate the consequences and provide alternatives.”
