President Muhammadu Buhari has explained the reasons foreign governors attended his rally in Kano this week.
In a statement by Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Buhari said the main opposition was panicky and jittery.
He explained that African political office seekers were trooping into the country to understudy his phenomenon.
Buhari maintained that the foreign governorsâ€™ presence at the Kano rally has not broken any Nigerian law.
The statement added,
â€œNigeria has been gifted with an honest leader, a man endowed with rare qualities and people are trying to copy that.
â€œIf our neighbours from Niger come to witness how President Buhari is doing his politics, what is the problem with that? Is there any law that is broken? Or did they see anyone that will buy vote or collect PVC?
â€œWhat we want PDP to know, there is a Buhari phenomenon that is sweeping across the entire continent. Candidates for national leadership in each country are doing whatever they can to understand the Buhari phenomenon, to copy it, to institute it.
â€œThatâ€™s why people from the African continentâ€¦when they had the presidential election in Ghana, there was a candidate who branded himself the Buhari of Ghana.
â€œWhen they had the presidential election in Chad last year, there was a Buhari of Chad. They had printed posters with their pictures with Buhari side by side.
â€œSo, itâ€™s jealousy. They are panicky and jealous. It should worry PDP that nobody is coming across the border to understudy PDP.â€
