This is contained in a communique issued at the end of the meeting of the union in Kano signed by its President, Alhaji Bature Abdulaziz, and made available to newsmen on Sunday.

The traders also expressed confidence that President Buhari would fulfill the promises he made to Nigerians to move the country forward.

“We now have full confidence more than ever before, in the Buhari Government’s sincerity to salvage the nation in the nearest future.

“We understand the difficulties Nigerians are going through in this time of recession.

“But we are confident that in the near future, the storm will be over to make each and every citizen happy.

“Why we are optimistic that Nigeria will soon get out of its difficulties is because efforts made on security and power by the President have since become a source of pride for the nation.

“We congratulate the President and the Nigeria security agents, especially our gallant soldiers, for restoring hope of a secure nation for us.

“We also salute the courage of some governors who in spite of the economic recession, are able to pay salaries every month,” the statement said.

The union, therefore, urged President Buhari not to relent in his determination to sanitise the country.

“We are a strong union representing all the traders and market unions in Nigeria.

"We are ready to sacrifice for our country by giving you all the necessary support for you to succeed,’’ the statement added.
