2019 Elections: 'If I Win The Next Election And I Survive The Next Four Years, I Will Do Better'-Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has told Nigerians in the diaspora that his administration has done well in the areas of security, economy and anti-corruption.

The president made the comment on Thursday during an interactive session with Nigerian professionals based in the US and Canada.

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”.

Buhari said he is not as slow as assumed, noting that he’s trying to follow the law, especially as democracy is different from military rule.

He said his administration has delivered within the available resources.

Buhari declared that “Boko Haram is not about religion but a pure terrorist group”, adding that “is why we are dealing with them”.

He said that Boko Haram has been decimated, but regretted that the terrorist group was still targeting soft spots and using girls for suicide bombing.

Buhari also recounted his experience in politics, saying he suffered electoral corruption from 2013 when he started contesting for the presidency but “ordinary Nigerians” form the core of his support base, maintaining that “they always vote for me”.

“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 and the security agencies to ensure that every vote counts by allowing Nigerians to pick whoever they want without harassment.
