Buhari Reveals What He’ll Do If Re-Elected In 2019
President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that his government will do better if he wins re-election in 2019 and “survives the next four years”.
According to the Nigerian supreme leader, “ordinary Nigerians” form the core of his support base, maintaining that “they always vote for me”.
The president made the comment on Thursday, September 27, during an interactive session with Nigerian professionals based in the US and Canada.
“If I win the next election and I survive the next four years, I will do better,” he said.
President Buhari further recounted his experience in politics, saying he suffered electoral corruption from 2013 when he started contesting for the presidency.
“I’m always conscious of the ordinary people because they are the ones that always vote for me. A lot of big men have no time to go and queue on the line for hours,” he said.
“There were even pregnant women who were on the line for hours and they delivered. They are my constituencies; they always vote for me.”
The president explained that he had warned the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the security agencies to ensure that every vote counts by allowing Nigerians pick whoever they want without harassment.
