“We are totally committed to building a country where our youths can realize their full potential,
“You can be assured that your welfare and well-being are topmost in our minds and very soon you will see the things we have promised come to fruition
“During the campaigns, change was our slogan, but today it is no longer a mere slogan, it is now a reality and we will see it in every facet of our lives.
“The youth will feel it, the adults will feel it and old people will feel it and we will get the country of our dreams,’’ the president said.
A document, addressed to president Buhari was later presented to Mr. Adesina by the NANS President, Tijani Usman Shehu.
