No more handouts, Nigerians must work hard, Buhari declares during campaign flag off in Uyo

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday said Nigerians must work harder and earn a living because they will be no more handouts if he wins re-election.

He was speaking in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, where he flagged off his re-election campaign.

“We are going to stop corruption, so you better sweat and work for a living because there is no more handouts,” he said.

“I assure you that no Nigerian will regret voting us into office and we will continue to improve the situation, security, economy and fighting corruption.”

He said many local governments were held by the Boko Haram insurgents when he assumed office but none, presently, is “physically” controlled by the group.

“I will like those who want to challenge us at any level, at any constituency, to doubt our contribution towards our undertaking,” he said.

“Our population is over 60% of young men, that is 30 years and below. Our main problem is employment. We are encouraging our farmers and we have regained food security.

“I assure you that you will not regret trusting us. We are going to secure this country, we are going to manage it properly,” the president said.
