The billionaire philantropist said he was happy to be associated with the President, and restated his commitment to the success of the administration as well as the progress, prosperity and well-being of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. 

He also expressed willingness to do more for the country, according to Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President(Media and Publicity).
