“President Buhari said it. “I will leave the legacy of free, fair credible elections for Nigeria.” In other words, it won’t be a do or die affair, as we had once been told by a retreating President.
“Even some of his party men and women began to suspect the President. Are you for us or against us? What is this dogged commitment to free, fair, credible polls, when we want to hold on to power for as long as possible? But the man was not fazed. He held onto his grounds, stuck to his guns.
“Even some economic policies, like the currency swap, which seemed to be hurting the people and reducing the chances of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for a possible return, President Buhari stuck to, knowing it was good for the country, and a veritable way to clean up our elections.”
