The Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Professor Ibrahim Gambari has declared that Nigerians should not expect the President to solve all of Nigeria’s problems alone.
Gambari made the submission on Saturday when he represented the President at the 2021 edition of the Sardauna Memorial Lecture (the 11th in the series) held at the Arewa House Banquet Hall, Kaduna State.
According to the President’s chief of staff, all hands must be on deck to ensure Nigeria works and overcomes all the challenges it is facing in order to reach its potentials.
He, however, noted that Buhari will lead by example but expects the corporation and assistance of every other stakeholder.
“Our ability to collectively address the challenges in our country today will go a long way in unlocking its huge potentialities, and the starting point is leadership by example,” Gambari said.
“We must not assume that the problems of our country should and can be solved by President Buhari’s administration alone.
“Yes, we lead by example, but every stakeholder has a responsibility to work collectively and put the interest of our country first and foremost.
“We must not forget the virtue of selfless service, which was inherent in our founding fathers, like the Sardauna.
“We have no choice, if indeed we are committed to the welfare, prosperity, peace, and security of our people, but to be selfless in service and honour them by making peace and security a cardinal point in all our actions,” Gambari said while delivering the President’s message.
