We have 24 hours light only when you’re around – Daura leaders tell Buhari


Apparently displeased by the erratic state of electricity in their community, one of the community leaders under the Daura Emirates, Mohammed Saleh, on Tuesday, told President Muhammadu Buhari that the Emirate enjoys stable power supply only when he is in town.

He said this when the leaders paid Sallah homage to Buhari, who was in his hometown to celebrate the  Eid-el-Kabir.

Saleh said “Anytime the President is around we enjoy 24 hours power supply. But if he is not around, the power supply is not always stable.”

He was in company with other leaders from the five Local Government Areas in Katsina State, that make up the Daura Emirate when he said this.

In his response, Buhari said; “Truly, the people know and understand my mission. This is what the votes showed. The administration will dwell on our campaign issues — security, economy and corruption. We will fight for the poor,” he said.

It was gathered that President Buhari had travelled to Daura on Friday ahead of the Eid-el-Kabir on Sunday. He had hosted the President of Guinea Conakry, Alpha Conde, who celebrated the Eid in Nigeria.

He also hosted All Progressives Congress governors on Tuesday.
