A statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, in Abuja said Buhari made his feelings known when he addressed leaders of various communities from five Local Government Areas of Daura Emirate.

The affected leaders were at the private residence of the president in Daura, Katsina State, as part of Eid El-Kabir celebration.

The President said he was convinced that majority of Nigerians understand who he was and his mission, on account of which they returned him for a second term in office with larger margin of votes than in 2015.

He emphasised the important place of agriculture under his administration, promising to appoint a minister who is knowledgeable and will know how to promote interest and investment in the sector.
