The Presidency on Tuesday disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari will rather lose the 2019 Presidential election than rigging it in his favour.

He said: “I’m surprised that this president has been with you for three and half years and yet you do not seem to know him.

“If anybody would rig election or anything, it will not be President Muhammadu Buhari. He would rather even prefer to lose fair and square.

“He has even said it before that if the only thing he would leave as a legacy for Nigeria is free and fair election, he would do it. Forget that the election would be rigged, that will not happen.”

Speaking on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) condemning Buhari’s Next Level document, the presidential aide dismissed the main opposition party.

He said: “The Next Level is about deepening what is happening in the country. It’s about consolidating on what has been done and what is been done; its about making progress and advancing on what we are doing now. That is the sum total of it.

“A lot of Nigerians believe in what this administration is doing, they have faith, they have confidence, they have hope that the administration will take Nigerians to the place it deserves to be.”
