Buhari spoke on the topic “Prospects for Democratic Consolidation in Africa: Nigeria’s Transition" at Chatham House in London.
The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari, today, February 26, gave a lecture at Chatham House in London.
Buhari spoke on the topic “Prospects for Democratic Consolidation in Africa: Nigeria’s Transition.”
Read ten important things he said below:
“Let me assure you that if I am elected president, the world will have no cause to worry about Nigeria as it has had to recently; that Nigeria will return to its stabilising role in West Africa.”
“Change is coming to #Nigeria and it will come democratically. Multiparty democracy is best form of government.”
“60% of Nigerians are youths, and most of them are unemployed. This is a problem we will tackle.”
“I have heard references to me as a former dictator. I take responsibility for whatever happened under my watch.”
“Anyone who wants to change Sharia has to change the constitution. Nigeria’s constitution is superior.”
“I'm fit, my doctors have declared me fit so I’m going back for the final onslaught on PDP.”
“What foreign investors need is security. We will provide it for them.”
“'Two things have bloomed in the present administration: waste and corruption. On corruption, there would be no confusion as to where I stand.”
“Apart from the civil war era, at no other time in our history has Nigeria been this insecure.”
“But in the matter of this insurgency, our soldiers have neither received the necessary support nor the required incentives to tackle this problem. Let me assure you that if I am elected president…we will give them adequate and modern arms and ammunition to work with; we will improve intelligence gathering and border controls to choke Boko Haram’s financial and equipment channels. I, Muhammadu Buhari, will always lead from the front and return Nigeria to its leadership role in regional and international efforts to combat terrorism.”
