President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, reflected on the recent general elections in which he secured a second term and said it still baffles him where he got the stamina to tour the country on campaigns.
The president also admonished those who called themselves leaders at various levels against putting up straight faces, especially in this period of economic travails, noting that such posture could pass a wrong message to those governed.
He used his re-election campaigns to buttress his point, saying the crowd that thronged his campaign grounds in each state he visited still intrigued him.
According to Buhari, he couldn’t have engaged in vote buying if he were to muster the financial strength to mobilise those crowd to vote in his favour.
Buhari spoke at the State House, Abuja, while playing host to some residents and political leaders of the Federal Capital Territory, led by the Permanent Secretary, Ohaa Christian, who came to pay him Sallah homage on the occasion of the Eid-El-Fitr festivities.
