I went into a coma when Jonathan called me after election – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari says he went “temporarily into a comma” when ex-President Goodluck Jonathan called him on phone to say he had conceded the 2015 election.

Buhari said his predecessor had stayed long enough in office to have caused problems at the round off of the election.

Buhari said however, Jonathan’s decision to concede defeat was great.

He added that he won the election because of the commitment of Nigerians and the use of permanent voters cards (PVCs).

Buhari was speaking when he hosted some top members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to a dinner at the presidential villa in Abuja.

“The PVCs worked well in 2015. That was why when the former president rang me, I went temporarily into a coma,” Buhari said.

“I will never forget the time. It was quarter past 5pm and he said he called to congratulate me and that he had conceded.

“He asked if I heard him, and I said yes. I thanked him for his statesmanship.

“The truth is after being a deputy governor, a governor, vice-president and president for six years, and he took that decision is great. He could have caused some problems. He had stayed long enough to cause problems.”

John Odigie-Oyegun, the party’s national chairman, urged Buhari to continue beyond 2019.

He said doing otherwise would mean that all what the president had struggled for would come to nothing.

“We are firmly, totally and completely behind you and when you make up your mind soon as I hope you will, you will find an army behind you,” Oyegun said.
