Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari has boasted after revealing where a chunk of his votes will come from in 2019.
Buhari said he was not hoping to get any vote from the
“big me n” because they don’t come out to vote during elections.
The President also said that he would perform better if given another opportunity.
Buhari further stated that he had warned the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and the security agencies to ensure that every vote counts in 2019.
He said he instructed them that all Nigerians must be allowed to vote whoever they want without harassment.
NAN reports that Buhari spoke on Thursday during an interactive session with a select group of Nigerian professionals based in the United States and Canada.
Buhari said he recognised that Nigerians in the diaspora were talented people and called on them to come to the support of the country, particularly, in education.
The president also said that he was not slow as some people had assumed, saying he was trying to follow the law, especially as democracy is different from military rule.
He recalled that he put people in Kirikiri Maximum Prison in Lagos when he was a military head of state and then ensured they remained in custody until they were able to prove themselves innocent.
Buhari, however, said his administration was making progress but had to go by the law assuring that “if I win the next election and I survive the next four years, I will do better”.
He also recounted his experience in politics saying that he suffered electoral corruption from 2013 when he started contesting for the presidency and had at each point, pursued the case up to the Supreme Court but lost.
“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.
“There were even pregnant women who were on the line for hours and they delivered. They are my constituencies; they always vote for me,” Buhari said.
