President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday sent a message home from Addis Ababa, saying he is fully aware of hardship some policies of government, “which are meant to bring overall improvement to the country” had caused and appealed for further patience as the government takes appropriate measures to ease them.

A presidential statement said that the president gave the assurance in a video recording to shore up support for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming elections.

The president thanked Nigerians for electing him for two terms, and urged them to vote for the APC flagbearer because “he is reliable and I know he will build on our achievements.”

In the campaign message to voters, the President specifically put a call on “our traditional rulers, religious leaders and parents to warn their followers and wards alike, to not allow themselves to be used by a few to foment trouble.
