The wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, has apologized to Nigerians over the insecurity experienced for the last seven years of the current administration as well as the harsh economic realities that have made life difficult for Nigerians.
The first lady tendered the apology on Friday at the 62nd Independence Day Special Juma’at Prayer and Public Lecture with the theme “Shura: The Islamic Foundation of True Democracy” which was held at the National Mosque Conference Hall, Abuja.
She claimed that the obvious depreciation of the Naira and the ongoing decline in the foreign exchange rate have had a negative impact on the economy, which she attributes to the challenges and difficulties Nigerians face in daily life, including in the areas of education, health, and other daily activities.
Notwithstanding, Aisha Buhari urged Nigerians to pray for a successful election in 2023 and a peaceful transition program.
She also commended the military and other security agencies and wished them continuing success in their fight against terrorists, bandits, and kidnappers.
She said: “Your Excellencies, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, as you may be aware that this government is making its exit and perhaps witnessing the last anniversary of the regime, I pray for Nigerians to pray for a successful election and transition program.
“The regime might not have been a perfect one, but I want to seize this opportunity to seek forgiveness from the Ulamas and Nigerians in general. We all need to work together to achieve a better Nigeria.
“Your Excellencies, distinguished guests, it is also noticeable that our naira is being evaluated and the foreign exchange rate has affected our economy causing a lot of hardship and difficulties in terms of education, health and other day-to-day activities of our citizens.
“We must unite and fight against security challenges. While the efforts of the government are well appreciated, it is important to know that many programs have been put in places such as agriculture, entrepreneurship, and engagement of youth and women to cushion the effects and provide alternatives.”
