President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, said that his administration is more preoccupied with the three major focus of the current administration than the 2019 presidential elections.
Speaking in a bilateral meeting with British Prime Minister, Theresa May in London, President Buhari said he is still more bothered about security and the Nigerian economy.
He said, “We campaigned on three major issues, to secure the country, revive the economy and fight corruption,”.
“We have elections next year, politicians are already preoccupied with the polls, but I am bothered more about security and the economy.”
He commended British companies like Unilever, Cadbury, and many others, “who have stood with Nigeria through thick and thin. Even when we fought a Civil War, they never left.”
“But like Oliver Twist, we ask for more investments. We are encouraging more British companies to come to Nigeria. We appreciate the support you have given in training and equipping our military, particularly in the war against insurgency, but we want to also continue to work with you on trade and investment.”
