Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity said this, Friday in Abuja, while speaking on behalf of some aides of the President, including himself, who were given a special award of recognition ‘for their contributions in projecting a solid and impressive image of the President in the discharge of their patriotic service to the Nigerian people.’
The Presidential spokesman said President Buhari was fully aware of the expectations of Nigerians: “The President is committed to making life better for the average Nigerian. At the end of the tenure, Nigerians will look back and say that they have no regrets for voting him.”
He however solicited for the support of the media, especially young publications like The Reporters, whose platform presented the awards, in carrying out their responsibilities effectively.
“We cannot achieve this alone. We count on the support of the citizens. We count on the support of the media, particularly up and coming publications like yours and we are also assuring you of our cooperation when you call on us,” he said.
The Chairman of the publication, Abdullahi Sabiu, said the awards were given to the Presidential aides after a careful assessment of their roles in the sustenance of the administration.
Other aides of the President given certificates of recognition were:
Mr Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity; Ambassador Lawal Abdullahi Kazaure, State Chief of Protocol; and Bayo Omoboriowo, Personal Photographer to the President.
