Special Interview: Why I Was Confident Of Winning 2019 Election – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari says he was confident of winning the 2019 Presidential election because Nigerians understand him.
Naija News reports that the President made this statement when he addressed Nigerians in a “Special Interview” aired on the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) on Monday, May 27.
This online news platform understands that President Buhari addressed many issues including insecurity, the economy, judiciary, the 2019 general elections among others.
Asked why he expressed so much confidence before the 2019 general elections, Buhari said: “I was confident of winning the election because Nigerians understand me.”
The President also said he would ensure police and judicial reform in his second term in office.
Asked if he will be more ruthless in his second term, he said, “Those who call me ‘baba go slow’ will see whether I am slow or fast.”
When asked to explain further, the President said, “It means I will persuade the police and the judiciary to be hard and where I uncover that they are not hard, I will find out who is responsible for the slowness in terms of command from the DPO upwards.
“The IG cannot do it alone; he needs to depend on commissioners who in turn depend on DPOs,” President Buhari added.
