Abdulmumin Jibrin, a member of the house of representatives from Kano state has said President Mohammadu Buahri currently has the “highest electoral value in the country and in the entire Africa.
He also said his ability to bring Nigeria out of economic recession last year is enough reason for him to seek re-election.
“When people say the economy is going down, I get surprised. What indices are they using to make their judgement?” he asked.
“The reality of the matter is that the capacity of Buhari setting up a crack team, giving power to the CBN and ministry of finance to battle the economic recession that would have brought Nigeria to ground zero is enough for Buhari to contest the next election.
“That was what former US president Barrack Obama did. He came when there was economic crisis in America and within two years, he was able to bring the country back on board. That was what he used to get re-election.”
