Garba Shehu Says President Buhari Was Persuaded And Pressured To Run For Government
President Buhari was encouraged and pressed to run for president, according to Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity.
Touchaheart Nigeria reports that Garba Shehu stated this on Channels TV in response to President Buhari’s statement that he had given his best to Nigeria as a governor, minister, and president.
Shehu reacted by saying that the President was correct in saying that he had given his all to the country.
“The president can be very casual sometimes in speaking and jovial and jocularly; I think this is what people fail to understand of him. They need to understand how he was persuaded and pressured to even run in the first instance.
He had served as governor, minister and military Head of State and that’s the highest it could get. He had retired home and Nigerians came and said you are the right person for this moment, we need you. It took some persuasion.
So, yes, it is right for the person to say he has given his best and when the time is up, some other person will take over.” he said
