Nigeria 2019: Buhari not desperate for power – Presidency

The Presidency said an important motivation for President Muhammadu Buhari’s bid for second term is that the gains made from 2015 should not be frittered.

According to the Presidency, Buhari “is not involved in corruption and is not desperate for the office.”

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, said this yesterday in a statement entitled “Buhari’s 2019 Bid and Matters Arising.”

He said since Buhari announced his intention to seek re-election on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress, “All hell has been let loose by the chaotic, ill-prepared opposition camp.”

He said Buhari “Is among the few leaders we have, who are not obsessed with money, cars and homes, but working passionately for the country’s economy, peace and safety.”

Shehu said if a corrupt politician wins in 2019, the country would go back to where it was in 2015.

He said in all democracies, second terms by incumbents are usually harder to get simply because somehow, there is always some kind of anti-incumbency leading to a loss of faith among those supporters.
