Leadership entails earning the trust of the people who voted you into office and consistently staying the path of honesty and fairness at all times, President Muhammadu Buhari told Katsina State lawmakers on Friday in Daura.

Receiving the leadership of the State House of Assembly led by the Speaker, Tasiu Maigari, President Buhari said the essence of contesting elections is to serve the people, and political actors must always remain loyal, dedicated and focused on delivering on their promises.

“Having been chosen by your people to lead, you must ensure that you remain trustworthy. Ensure fairness at all times. Leadership at home, community or national level is a heavy responsibility. And it must be discharged with fairness, firmness and justice,’ the President said.

He urged the lawmakers to be selfless, visionary and committed to meeting the needs of the electorate while minding their constitutional responsibilities.

In his remark, the speaker thanked the president for providing leadership at the national level and setting a standard on integrity and forthrightness for others to emulate.

Mr Maigari assured the president that the Katsina House of Assembly will continue to support his policies, and ensure a trickling down in the state to favour their various constituencies.
