While advising Nigerians, Aisha Buhari acknowledged the heroics of citizens who made sacrifices for the country.
“I am happy to be part of today’s celebration as I congratulate Nigerians on the attainment of 60th anniversary of our nationhood. Our growth, despite huge challenges is a result of the dogged sacrifices of our heroes past both males and females.
“I wish to specially note the contributions of great men and women to the realization of one Nigeria. We have a duty not just to remember them, but to imbibe their spirit of patriotism and unity. It is important that we remain focused in our drive to achieve the Nigeria of their dream, our dream.”
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari criticised governments from 1999 to 2015 in his broadcast.

The incumbent stated that they presided over “near-destruction”.
