President Muhammadu Buhari says he will want to be remembered as the president who stabilised Nigeria in the areas of security, economic prosperity and triumph over corruption.

The president stated this at a town hall meeting with South East leaders during his one-day official visit to Imo.

According to him, with less than two years left in his eight-year tenure as president, security still remains a major priority for his administration.

Buhari told the South-East leaders that while fighting corruption in Nigeria had become very sophisticated and difficult, he would continue to strive to leave a lasting legacy of integrity and accountability in the system. 

On the forthcoming 2023 elections, the president reaffirmed his commitment to free, fair and credible polls.

In his remarks at the townhall meeting, Uzodinma said Ndigbo believed in a united Nigeria predicated on ‘‘justice, equity and fairness’’.

He thanked the president for addressing the interests of Ndi Igbo through deliberate policy initiatives designed to give the people a true sense of belonging, including the ongoing construction of the 2nd Niger Bridge, among others.
