The Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha has said that her husband became the President of Nigeria because of his love for the people. She said Nigerians should learn from her husbandâ€™s doggedness of remaining resolute on whatever they want, pointing out that her he did not give up even after contesting several times to become Nigeriaâ€™s President.
She made this known in Abeokuta, Ogun state during a book launch titled: â€œBuhari vs Yarâ€™Adua: Facing the future,â€ by the Special Assistant on Media to Governor Ibikunle Amosun, Opeyemi Soyombo.
â€œThere are lots of lessons to learn from the life of President Muhammadu Buhari, most especially his doggedness and compassion for the masses. President Buhari contested presidential election consecutively four times before he eventually won in 2015.
â€œHis victory has paid off considering his passion to helping the masses and most importantly, the successes recorded in the anti-corruption war of his government.
â€œI commend the efforts of the writer for documenting the Presidential Election suit between the candidate of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), Muhammadu Buhari and President Umaru Yarâ€™Adua of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2007.
â€œThis shows that the author has been following with keen interest elections held in the country and the petitions arising from them. In most recent shared views and writings on human and societal development, the investment made on other people gives tremendous yields; thus the facts and authenticity of the book are invaluable.â€
Aisha Buhari who was represented by Governor Amosunâ€™s wife, Olufunso, lauded the author for writing the book which is a documentation of the legal struggles of Muhammadu Buhari who challenged the victory of the late President Umaru Yarâ€™Adua in 2007.
