The Lamido of Adamawa, Alhaji Muhammad Barkindo has given reasons God allowed President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election.
According to him, Buhari’s re-election was an act of God that would enable the President to complete the anti-corruption war he started when he was the country’s military leader.
Lamido made this remark when he received members of Wadata Communication Nigeria Ltd, led by the company’s Project Manager, Alhaji Zubair Idris in his palace.
”President Muhammadu Buhari’s re- election is a will of Almighty God that will enable him complete the good works he started when he was a military ruler, especially the fight against corruption.
”I hope Nigerians will understand the good intention he has for the country, ” Lamido said.
The Royal Father narrated how he, who was then the Commissioner of Finance in Gov. Barde’s administration, was arrested after the 1983 military coup.
”After my arrest and investigation, they found out that I had not stolen any money and was not involved in any corrupt practices, as such, I was released.
“I want President Muhammadu Buhari to continue with the fight against corruption and may Almighty God guide and protect him,” he said.
According to the traditional ruler, any person that has never engaged in shady economic deals should have nothing to fear.
