President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria has again re-echoed his decision to seek re-election in 2019, assuring his supporters that he is confident of winning.
Buhari who made the statement in Bauchi while inaugurating 500 tractors and other farm implements procured by the Bauchi State government at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium, said he would seek re-election for a second term and win again because he “is a clean man and not corrupt like other past Nigerian leaders.”
He pointed out Most Nigerian treasury looters have more than 20 to 30 houses yet some people in the country cannot afford even a single room to sleep in because poverty has eaten them up.
He commended Bauchi State Governor, Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar, for using his bailout funds to clear salary arrears and ensure regular payment of salaries in the state.
The president who inaugurated a 60-bed Nigerian Air Force Reference Hospital, said the establishment of the special operation command of the Nigerian Air Force in Bauchi is in response to the current and emerging threat facing the country.
