President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his election victory in 2015 was made possible by the ordinary people in the society and boasted that even pregnant women in labour will deliver and still rush to vote for him.
He has also accused the elites of turning blind eyes to the alleged looting that took place in sixteen years the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, was in control of the federal government.
Speaking while interacting with Nigerian community in the United States of America, on the margins of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly in New York, President Buhari said if re-elected in the 2019 election, to spend another four years, “I will leave some difference in that office.”
He expressed regret that the elites allowed Nigeria to be mismanaged for 16 years of PDP rule, without raising a voice in consternation.
He stated that “Under the PTF (Petroleum Trust Fund, of which he was Chairman), we did roads from Lagos to Abuja, to Onitsha, to Port Harcourt. Since then, the roads were not done, between 1999 and 2015, yet the elite did not say a word.
