Former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Dr (Mrs) Farida Waziri has described President Muhammadu Buhari as a man of destiny who must be supported by all Nigerians irrespective of their religious, ethnic and political affiliations.

Waziri, who is the founder and principal partner of Brookfield Chambers, a firm of legal practitioners based in Abuja, stated this on Saturday in Uga-Mbagwa, Oshongo Local Government Area of Benue state while fielding questions from journalists after the commissioning of her community’s worship centre.

“My response to your question will be that, I believe in President Buhari because he is believable and he has remained constant like the morning star since I know him and beyond that I’m sure that he is a man of destiny, a resolute, sincere and committed leader who says what he means and does what he preaches.

“In the history of Nigeria, he is today the only leader who has contested the presidential election for four consecutive times and on the fourth time made history by defeating a sitting president. Remember he almost paid the ultimate price when his convoy was targeted in Kaduna before the election? Some other persons would have chickened out and even flee the country but he remained resolute and committed to the course he believed in.

“That I can tell you, is the kind of gut the nation needs at this critical time especially to fight corruption which is one of our greatest challenges today.”

When asked why she was not visible during and after the recent general elections, Waziri said she has been out of the country attending to some pressing issues. She expressed happiness that President Buhari won the presidential election against all odds.

She said the time has come for Nigerians to come together and salvage the country irrespective of their differences.

“We have no other country other than Nigeria, this is why I plead with everyone I meet to please support the Buhari administration because that is the only sure way we can make Nigeria a better place not only for ourselves but for generations coming behind us,” she stated.

The former EFCC chairman noted that an indication that a lot of things will change for good under the Buhari government is the number of positive changes that are already being witnessed by Nigerians within the first three weeks of the new regime.

“When the right leadership is provided and in place, a lot of things will naturally fall in place. That answers the question being asked by Nigerians at the moment: how come we’re now told that our refineries will start working? That’s enough to convince us that a lot of good things will come in place under the Buhari government as long as we are ready to play our role as patriotic citizens,” she added.
