As Politician, I Have Tasted The Pains Of Seeking Elective Office – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has recounted his election experience since he started his journey to Aso Rock and pleaded with Nigerians to have a little more patience.

“It is not easy for us to surmount all the obstacles against us, but knowing that the road to a promised land appeared rough, but all I want from Nigerians is to be patient.”

Speaking on Wednesday, December 6, 2017, during his official visit to Kano State, President Buhari said as a Military Head of State he arrested and jailed many people for corruption and in the process, he also ended up in jail.

“When I was the military head of state, I arrested many people and jailed them for alleged corruption. In the end, I also ended in jail,”

He recounted how he challenged election results for almost four years and his perseverance finally paid off when he won the 2015 Presidential election, having contested in the 2003, 2007 and 2011 elections.
