“Foreign Pressure Made Me President”–Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has credited his emergence at the polls to pressure from foreign powers.  This he stated at the Leadership Newspaper Newspaper Annual Awards held at Transcorp Hilton on Thursday

At an event that also honoured former President Goodluck Jonathan and former INEC umpire Attahiru Jega, the president stated:

“Those of us who were participating actors in the election were led by the higher ideal of the future of our great country and the well-being of our people rather than a mere desire of politicians to win elections.”

“It is therefore, our commitment to these ideal, the patriotic zeal of President Jonathan, the patriotism of the electoral umpire, INEC, and exemplary conduct of the political parties, foreign pressure and other actors that collectively disappointed the prophets of doom, who predicted the disintegration of the country after the 2015 general elections,” the president said.

While Buhari and Jega were present, Jonathan was represented at the event by the Minister of Special Duties in his administration, Tanimu Turaki.
