President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he won the last presidential election by the grace of God and not by 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.
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.
“If Nigerians continuously follow the tenets of democracy the country will always be at peace since democracy on its own with its institutions has the mechanism for resolving conflicts peacefully,” he said.
