Buhari, according to a statement by his spokesman Mr Femi Adesina,zero said this on Monday at a bilateral meeting with the British Prime Minister, Theresa May at 10, Downing Street, London.
"We campaigned on three major issues, to secure the country, revive the economy and fight corruption,” said the President. “We have elections next year, politicians are already pre-occupied with the polls, but I am bothered more about security and the economy," the president said.
President Muhammadu Buhari, had at a meeting of the National Executive Committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress in Abuja last Monday, had announced his intention to seek reelection in 2019.
He stated: "People ought to know how they arrived where they are, if they would move forward. It was a mistake for us to have stopped the teaching of history as a subject in schools, but we are returning it to the curriculum now."
Prime Minister May was quoted as saying that Britain would continue to work with Nigeria in the areas of training and equipping the military.
