Wife of President Buhari, Aisha Buhari, yesterday disclosed that her husband’s doggedness and compassion for the masses made him win the 2015 presidential election depsite losing in four other elections.
Aisha Buhari said this at the launch of a book, titled: “Buhari vs Yar’Adua: Facing the future,” written Opeyemi Soyombo, Special Assistant on Media to Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun.
Represented the wife of the Ogun state governor, Olufunso Amosun, Aisha Buhari asked Nigerians to emulate her husband in the pursuit of their dreams.
“There are lots of lessons to learn from the life of President Muhammadu Buhari, most especially his doggedness and compassion for the masses. President Buhari contested presidential elections four consecutive times before he eventually won in 2015. His victory has paid off considering his passion to help the masses and most importantly, the successes recorded in the anti-corruption war of his government. I commend the efforts of the writer for documenting the presidential election suit between the candidate of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and President Umaru Yar’Adua of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2007. This shows that the author has been following with keen interest elections held in the country and the petitions arising from them. In most recent shared views and writings on human and societal development, the investment made on other people gives tremendous yields; thus the facts and authenticity of the book are invaluable.”she said
