President Buhari has described Abuja residents as a necessary evil whom he must protect despite them not voting for him in the 2019 general election.
Buhari revealed this when he received a delegate led by the permanent secretary, Christian Ohaa, comprising religious leaders, National Assembly members, civil servants, service chiefs and heads of other security agencies among others who came to pay him Sallah homage.
While speaking, President Buahri revealed that despite not getting votes from the Abuja residents, he would continue to protect the seat of power.
“I want to appreciate the number two man of the country because he knows what we are going through very quietly. I am very pleased that you came with this very powerful constituency. I appeal to you to remain exemplary so that those under you will know that the country is doing very well. If you break down and complain, the impact will reverberate all over and then government will not be popular and whatever efforts we are making will not be appreciated.
“I have just spoken to the senator on my left (Philip Aduda) and I told him that his constituency did not vote for me. So I was very pleased that when they made the arrangement they put him very far away from me. I have all the results of all constituencies. I am not threatening FCT because to make FCT secure is to make myself secure and the vice president. I think they know that they are a necessary evil that was why they decided to vote for PDP” he said
