“I am calling you to remain focus, stand firm and don’t listen to the empty barrels Nigerian elites who are calling you not to re-contest for 2019 Presidential election.They are burying their heads in shame and telling people that Buhari’s led Government has done nothing,” Barkindo noted.

He also noted that the elite had forgotten that Buhari introduced Treasury Single Account where Tens of Trillions of naira belonging to Nigerian people was saved.He listed some of the visible achievements of Buhari to include security, economy and fight against corruption.

He appealed to the Federal Government to look into the Chochi water and rice irrigation project which he said was abandoned for over 20 years .

The monarch appealed to the president to intervene and reconsider the upgrading of Moddibo Adama University of Technology, Yola into full pledge conventional university with schools of management, Information Technology, Health among others
