Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will win again if he contests another presidential election.

Many Nigerians who voted for Buhari have expressed regret over the action due to the current economic hardship in the country.

Adesina however said that Buhari has done well and would “win and win again and again.”

He made the comment while appearing on Channels TV’s “Sunday Politics.”

“That would depend on Nigerians, but if you ask me as an individual, I will say, yes, the president can win and win again and again,” Adesina said when asked if Buhari could win an election today.

Adesina also spoke on calls for Buhari’s resignation by suspended lawmaker, Abdulmumin Jibrin.

“So, if he thinks the president can’t do the job, it is just his opinion. One vote didn’t bring the president to power. Over 15 million Nigerians voted for the president into office, so one person cannot say he should quit. So what he has said is his opinion and he has a right to it,” Adesina said.
