President Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity Garba Shehu has said that the President was persuaded and pressured by some Nigerians to run the Presidential race.
He made this statement on Channel’s TV while reacting to comment made by the Nigerian President that he has given his best to Nigeria after serving as Governor, Minister and finally a President.
Shehu who was reacting to the President’s comment said he was right to have said that because he has given his best to the country.
“The president can be very casual sometimes in speaking and jovial and jocularly; I think this is what people fail to understand of him. They need to understand how he was persuaded and pressured to even run in the first instance.
He had served as governor, minister and military Head of State and that’s the highest it could get. He had retired home and Nigerians came and said you are the right person for this moment, we need you. It took some persuasion.
So, yes, it is right for the person to say he has given his best and when the time is up, some other person will take over,” he stated.
