Nigerian leader Muhammadu Buhari has said he would soon embark on an “aggressive campaign” ahead of the country’s presidential polls in February.
Buhari, recently accused of not being ready for a serious re-election campaign by the main opposition party, said his campaign would start with visits to each of the six geopolitical zones of the west African country.
“We will go from geopolitical zone to geopolitical zone, to remind the people of our promises in 2015,” the president, seeking a second term of office, told the official News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday.
According to the president, his campaign will focus on the fight against corruption, improving the economy and tackling security.
Buhari said the three areas of focus, with which he campaigned in 2015, still remained relevant in the country.
The president’s campaign group earlier disclosed he would flag off his campaign for re-election in the southern state of Akwa Ibom, on Dec. 28. Enditem
