President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated that he will never betray the trust reposed in him by Nigerian masses to please his children or relations.

He made the disclosure in a 55-minue documentary titled: ‘Buhari: Beyond the Iron and Steel’, aired by the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), on Sunday, December 24.

According to President Buhari, he remains in politics today because of the goodwill he enjoys from the masses, NAN reports.

The documentary features Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, some ministers and ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) governors and chieftains speaking about the positive attributes of the president.

In a remark to close the documentary, Buhari said: “I pray five times a day thanking God that allowed people to understand and believe me.

“This goodwill that I enjoy from the masses is what is keeping me in politics and of course, my central objective is to provide transparency and accountable government.”

A post by special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, on his Facebook account earlier on Sunday, had given an insight on the contributions of the speakers, including Osinbajo.

The Vice President said: “He gives you things to do, and leaves you strictly to do those things. No interference at all, once he has confidence in you….And he cracks those jokes, and manages to still keep a straight face.”

Senior special assistant to the president on diaspora matters, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said: “How I wish Nigerians know his softer and accommodating side. Very jocular. But it is our duty to tell them.”

Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, in his remarks, admitted that he and some other people he did not name could no longer roll on the floor of President Buhari’s living room like they used to when they were in opposition.

When we were in the opposition, you needed to see how we rolled on the floor in his (Buhari’s) living room, as we laughed. Of course, we can’t do that again now,” he stated.

Ogun state governor, Ibikunke Amosun, described him as a “reformed democrat.”

He added: “I wish I had his patience. He would listen to everybody, and then take a decision. He is a reformed democrat.”

The documentary was put together by the Media and Publicity department of the State House, Abuja.

NAIJ.com earlier reported that one of the daughters of President Buhari, Halima, described her father as a realistic person.

She said this is what she wanted Nigerians to know about her father in a 55-minute video, put together by the media and publicity department of the state.

According to her, her father advised her to study hard because he had nothing more to offer than education.
