Nigeria’s elites have always been against my political ambition, President Muhammadu Buhari maintained.
President Buhari has come out to say that, the elites have been against his political ambition, since he started contesting for presidency.
He said all of these, during an interview broadcast he had on Monday night with the Nigerian Television Authority, NTA.
We ought to thank ordinary citizens for electing me a leader and, thereby, saving everyone from drastic leadership failure, President Buhari said.
“I contested three times, before I won the fourth time. The elites should thank the rest of other Nigerians who voted for me”, he quoted.
Buhari complained that Nigerian elites have always pushed a candidate they believe would be biddable and controllable to their economical and political interests.
They want to impress and they try to dictate the terms for government, He stated.
