Buhari and Tinubu have won awards in London.
EKOHOTBLOG reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has been conferred the Nation Builder Award at an event organised by the All Progressives Congress (APC), United Kingdom chapter, to celebrate Nigeria’s 61st Independence Anniversary in London.
The chapter’s Publicity Secretary, Jacob Ogunseye, made this known via a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday.
Ogunseye further noted that the National Leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, was also nominated for the Leadership Award at the event held on October 2, at Dorchester Hotel, London, UK.
The chapter’s Publicity Secretary added that despite Nigeria’present challenges, the country’s future looks convincingly bright, adding that Independence Day should be seen as a day for reflection on the country’s past, work on the present and plan for the future.
“It is a time to rework, re-jig, revamp and re-engineer the country for economic eldorado and structural workability to guarantee good living standards for the entire citizenry,” he stated.
According to NAN, the APC UK leader noted that Nigeria might not be where it ought to be as a country, but it is not where it used to be.
“We have left the sorry and perilous state we were and are now making considerable progress with a new re-invigorated and re-energised military force.
“A time was in this country that the entire nation was under siege and had over 27 of her local governments under the control of terrorists, but today, the story is entirely different.
“All thanks to the President Buhari-led administration, and many accolades to our gallant military officers who have continued to put their lives in the line of danger for us all to live,” he said.
