Lawan said, “PDP abandoned us until you came into office. In 2015, when you were sworn in, your first task was to liberate us. Thank you very much for what you did.
“We in the North East are probably the most beneficiaries of your administration. In fact, we were the first to start enjoying your administration more than any other part of Nigeria, because Boko Haram was technically defeated immediately after you came into office and you appointed our son, Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Yusuf Buratai and, of course, Air Marshal Sadique Baba Abubakar, as Chief of Air Staff.
“They did so well that your government gave the security that we are enjoying today. The North East, from 2015 particularly, enjoyed the most important appointments in your administration. That is to say that you are a northeasterner. This crowd is a testimony. Everywhere you go is Buhari, in the northeast.”
