President Muhammadu Buhari has said that nobody will unseat him in the forthcoming presidential election.
The president made this known while talking with CNN's reporter, David Mckenzie, in an interview on Friday, February 15.
According to him, he is not worried anybody will unseat him in the coming election like he did to the last incumbent government.
Among other things, when asked what he has done about the incessant attacks of Boko Haram, Buhari mentioned that the insurgent group used to hold 17 local government areas in the country out of 774 local government in Nigeria, but now holds nothing.
When the reporter asked him that what his answer to the claim that he does not have the stamina to run for another term in office is, Buhari jokingly said he has done that, so the people can give the correspondent another answer.
He said: "Well, I have done it, so they can give you another answer."
Asked the strength of the nation's military to stop the terror group, Buhari said the armed force can handle the group and thanked the European countries for the training they have been giving to them.
