By Jonathan Nda-Isaiah, Abuja –
President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed that he has remained in politics because of the goodwill he enjoys from the masses.
He made the disclosure in a video clip which appeared in a one-hour documentary on titled:
“Buhari: Beyond the Iron and Steel” put together by the Media and Publicity department of the President.
In his remarks, Buhari said: “I pray five times a day thanking God that allowed people to understand and believe me.
“This goodwill that I enjoy from the masses is what is keeping me in politics and of course, my central objective is to provide transparency and accountable government.”
A post by Special Adviser to the president on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on his Facebook account earlier on Sunday, had given an insight on the contributions of the speakers including Osinbajo.
The Vice President said: “He gives you things to do, and leaves you strictly to do those things. No interference at all, once he has confidence in you….And he cracks those jokes, and manages to still keep a straight face.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Diaspora Matters, Abike Dabiri-Erewa said: “How I wish Nigerians knew his softer and accommodating side. Very jocular. But it is our duty to tell them.”
Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, in his remark, admitted that he and some other people he did not name can no longer roll on the floor of President Buhari’s living room like they use as to when they were in opposition.
“When we were in the opposition, you needed to see how we rolled on the floor in his (Buhari’s) living room, as we laughed. Of course, we can’t do that again now,” he stated.
Ogun State Governor, Ibikunke Amosun, described him as a “reformed democrat.”
“I wish I had his patience. He would listen to everybody, and then take a decision.”
He is a reformed democrat,” he said.Kaduna:
