President Muhammadu Buhari says he is running for a second term in office because majority of Nigerians appreciate what his government is doing.
According to a statement released by Femi Adesina, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Buhari said this on Wednesday while receiving Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, in London.
“I declared before leaving home because Nigerians were talking too much about whether I would run or not,” he said.
“So, I felt I should break the ice. We have many things to focus on, like security, agriculture, economy, anti-corruption, and many others. We needed to concentrate on them, and politics should not be a distraction. The majority of Nigerians appreciate what we are doing, and that is why I am re-contesting.”
