With Army & police we could have overrun you in 2019, Buhari tells PDP
President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he could have used the “Army, the police and the rest of them” to overrun the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other parties during the 2019 General Elections.
President Buhari said these during the meeting with the North East Governors’ Forum (NEGF) yesterday comprising of governors of both the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the PDP.
He said: “It is true that we lost some states as a ruling party in a developing country, which is normal.
“I am proud of that because we are impartial, that is why as ruling party, we lost some states.
“That means we have our own mistakes,” he said.
Continuing further, he said: “Some of those that defeated us are sitting here.
“We know we are a developing country but we respect our country, otherwise, with the use of Army, the police and the rest of them, we could have overrun you.
“We just wanted to show that we are humane and we are Nigerians. We will continue to do our best,” Buhari said.
