I Won By God’s Grace, Not Man Or Money – President Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he won the last presidential election by the grace of God and not by Man, money or power, adding that, the 2015 polls has clearly shown that it is God that chooses who becomes a leader.

 The president said this when he paid homage to the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Faruk Umar, after attending the Juma’at prayer at the Lowcost Mosque, in Daura, Katsina state.
“It is not by power, it is not by wealth but by the Grace of God that I won the election,” 
the president said.

 The President, who delivered his speech in Hausa, urged those who were aggrieved after the 2015 elections to seek redress through democratic means and institutions. He also urged Nigerians to be patient and accept democracy not as a system of government but as a lifestyle in order to ensure development of the country.

 The President said that in 2002 when he joined politics, many people did not give him a chance because they knew his antecedents as a military officer. But he decided to contest elections because of his commitment to serve the people and not to be served or to amass wealth.

 He added that he had served the nation in different capacities in the past and had not had so much money in the banks either locally or abroad or anywhere in the world. He said all he had over time “is integrity and commitment to serve the people” and said that he would fulfill his promises to the people.

President Buhari had earlier attended the Juma’at prayer with his kinsmen at the Lowcost Mosque in Daura where the Chief Imam, Alhaji Musa Mansir, prayed for peace and development in the country.

 Many residents of Daura thronged both the mosque and the Emir’s palace to have a glimpse of the President.
