Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, commended Kaduna and Kano states for their support during the February 23rd presidential election, noting that he has paid back by giving them two substantive positions in his council.
While speaking during a courtesy visit to emir of Zazzau, Shehu Idris at his palace in Zaria, Kaduna, President Buhari vowed to do everything within his power to make Nigeria better.
“Before you push everything to me, I am just reminding you that I will do my best and I will make sure that the new cabinet is working for the good of Nigeria and Nigerians.”
“Kaduna and Kano are the only two states I gave two substantive positions in my council. So, I have appreciated your votes and paid you back by giving you ministers of environment and finance.”
In the last general elections, Buhari received 1, 464,768 votes in Kano and 993,445 votes from Kaduna.
The President appointed Mohammed Mahmoud, from Kaduna and made him the minister of environment, while Zainab Ahmed, from the same state, was made the minister of finance. Sabo Nanono from Kano is minister of agriculture while Bashir Magashi is the minister of defence.
