President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to continue to work for the progress and development of the country.
Presidential Spokesman, Femi Adesina, said this on Thursday at the State House, Abuja, while receiving an award from the Progressive Councilors Forum (PCF), an association of past and present elected councillors, led by the Chairman, Sunday Achor.
Adesina asserted that President Buhari will leave behind stronger democratic institutions and cultures that will continue to drive development.
He maintained that the president would continue to remain focused on the goal of a greater Nigeria, delivering on the gains of democracy to every citizen and working with organizations.
Adesina added that Buhari will also work with those directly involved with the grassroots to promote good governance and development.
“We will continue to support anything that will strengthen democracy. We will continue to be part of anything that will ensure progress for the work of the president,’’ he said.
Adesina assured the PCF that the administration would also welcome partnerships that will propagate the policies and actions of President Buhari’s government, especially in communities.
Presenting the award titled, “Warrior of Truth and Tangible Development’’ to Adesina, the Chairman of PCF said the decision to recognize his efforts in ensuring effective communication was collective, adding that the organization would continue to support the work of the administration.
“We are the closest elected officials to the people. We are custodians of the people. Our association consists of both serving and past councilors.
“Our coming here is a child of necessity putting into consideration your antecedents.
“We see you as a warrior of truth and tangible development and have decided to give you this award as an encouragement.
“We will partner with you to translate information into languages that the ordinary people will understand,’’ he noted.
