President Muhammadu Buhari says he is a beneficiary of free and fair election, hence, he is not afraid of a level playing ground during the 2019 polls.
He said this on Sunday while holding an interactive session with the Nigerian community in China.
The president is in China for the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) summit.
“I have no fear about free and fair election, because that’s what brought me here,” he said in a video shared on the presidency’s Twitter handle.
Buhari also talked about how he became president after trying four times.
“I know what I went through,” he said, adding that, “I tried four times… and the fourth time technology came and helped us and people’s vote counted”.

He also called on Nigerians in China to support his government and vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 general election.
Buhari, who is seeking re-election, is expected to clinch the ticket of his party for the presidential poll.
Some of the bigwigs in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) seeking to unseat him include former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar and Senate President Bukola Saraki.
