Former President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed why he was happy when incumbent President Bola Tinubu increases the petrol pump price on May 29, 2023.
According to Buhari, the decision reduced the number of visitors he receives in his native Daura town in Katsina State.
Buhari made the revelation on Sunday as the special guest of honour at the maiden edition of the annual Katsina Dialogue organised by the Katsina Consultative Forum, held at the Presidential Banquet Hall of the Katsina Government House in Katsina.
Speaking in Hausa language, Buhari said he returned to Daura and a lot of people kept visiting him but when Tinubu increased the price of fuel, he rejoiced because the visits reduced.
Speaking about drug abuse, Buhari added;
“A nation’s greatness is measured by how it safeguards its people. Our youths represent our valued asset and protecting their wellbeing is crucial for our nation’s future. We can’t afford to watch as drug abuse dismantle their potential and the country’s future. I urge all of us to unite and act decisively against drug abuse in the state,” he said.
