Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, has said that “despite not being rich”, Nigerians accepted and voted for him during the 2015 general election.

He however, recalled how thousands of Nigerians stood under the hot sun for more than 10 hours to vote him as their president.

He said;
“The number of people that turned out to see me, some waiting for 10 hours in the sun, was more than anyone could buy, or force. They just wanted to see who this Buhari was. People wonder why Nigerians accept me, despite not being rich. I wonder, too. I felt I just have to serve Nigeria and Nigerians to the best of my ability.”
