[NEWS] USA, UK NOT PRESSURING BUHARI TO DROP SECOND TERM BID – PRESIDENCY

President Buhari

 

THE PRESIDENCY HAS DISMISSED REPORTS THAT SOME FOREIGN POWERS ARE PUTTING PRESSURE ON PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI NOT TO SEEK RE-ELECTION IN 2019.

SPECIAL ADVISER TO THE PRESIDENT ON MEDIA AND PUBLICITY, FEMI ADESINA, SAID THIS IN A STATEMENT TO JOURNALISTS, WHILE REACTING TO A STORY WHICH CLAIMED THAT FOREIGN POWERS, INCLUDING THE EUROPEAN UNION, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, UNITED KINGDOM, AND SAUDI ARABIA, ARE PUTTING PRESSURE ON BUHARI NOT TO SEEK RE-ELECTION.

THE PRESIDENTIAL SPOKESPERSON SAYS CONTRARY TO THE REPORT, BUHARI IS BEING HELD IN HIGH ESTEEM IN THE COUNTRIES MENTIONED IN THE REPORT.

ADESINA ADDED THAT IT IS ONLY THOSE WHO FEAR ELECTORAL LOSS THAT ARE TRYING TO DISSUADE THE PRESIDENT FROM RUNNING BY ALL MEANS.
