Femi Adesina, special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity revealed that some governors were unsettled because the number one citizen wanted a credible election.
The media practitioner claimed that some chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC) began to suspect President Buhari in the build up to the elections.
Adesina said this in a publication on Thursday, March 2nd on Facebook titled “FOR PMB, IT’S NIGERIA AND NOTHING ELSE”
He praised Mr, President for providing a level playing ground for all the contestants and also for his lack of fear to do the right thing.
Adesina wrote: “President Buhari said it. “I will leave the legacy of free, fair credible elections for Nigeria. In other words, it won’t be a do or die affair, as we had once been told by a retreating President.
“Even some of his party men and women began to suspect the President. Are you for us or against us? What is this dogged commitment to free, fair, credible polls, when we want to hold on to power for as long as possible? But the man was not fazed. He held onto his grounds, stuck to his guns.
“Even some economic policies, like the currency swap, which seemed to be hurting the people and reducing the chances of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for a possible return, President Buhari stuck to, knowing it was good for the country and a veritable way to clean up our elections.”
