President Muhammadu Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari says he is not afraid to lose the presidential election rescheduled early Saturday morning to February 23.
Mr Buhari spoke at a national caucus meeting of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) held on Monday at the party’s headquarters in Abuja over the postponement of the election.
The meeting was attended by the president, National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, party leader Bola Tinubu, 11 APC governors, and Minister of Transportation.
”I am not afraid to lose. I have gone around the 36 states and Abuja I think I have enough supporters across the country to look after me.” Mr Buhari said.
Mr Buhari said he wants Nigerians to be respected irrespective of the outcome of the election.
He also urged Nigerians to come out and vote on the rescheduled date for the candidates of their choice.
”We are not going to be blamed that we want to rig election. I want Nigerians to be respected. Let them vote whoever they want across the parties,” the president said.
