The Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu has stated that nobody can bring down the Buhari-led government.
Shehu who said this during his appearance on Channels TV on Friday, March 26, assured that the president remains focused on preserving the security and unity of this country.
The spokesman said, “I want to assure Nigerians that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is addressing multiple challenges that are facing the country especially in dealing with security and yet we are still making progress in agriculture, economy, anti-corruption. It is sad for the country that the opposition is exploiting some of these things. It is quite unfortunate and I want to assure you that the president remains focused on preserving the security and unity of this country.”
Shehu added, “We accept that dissent is allowed, this is a democracy and people have a right to tell truth to the government but we must be careful in doing that. Nobody can bring down the government because this is a government elected democratically. Government in a democracy comes through periodic elections and if we have a government in office as we have, sponsored by political parties to win the elections, it is telling you that that confidence of the public is still there. People with strong ambitions, wait till four years, in fact, in our case, two more years to go to the election and President Buhari will not be a candidate in that election.”
