Speaking after receiving the flag, Buhari noted that troops cannot “complain” because they want to serve, adding that his administration will do its best to build national institutions in the country.
“I believe you are here because you want to be here and you cannot complain. We will do our best to build the national institutions in the country.
“There are 250 ethnic groups, so keeping Nigeria one is a task that must be done. So even for personal reason you must make sure this country stays one and remain strong,” Buhari said.
