President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday night said he went into coma when in 2015 former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, called to congratulate him as having emerged as winner of that year’s presidential election.
Buhari, who spoke when he hosted chieftains of the APC to a dinner at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, said his emergence as president was as a result of the use of the Permanent Voter Cards.
He stressed the need for proper voters education, saying Nigerians must be told they need to choose the leaders of their choice.
He said: “The PVCs worked well in 2015.
“That was why when the former president rang me, I went temporarily into a coma.
“I will never forget the time.
“It was quarter after 5 pm and he said he called to congratulate me and that he has conceded defeat.
“He asked if I heard him and I said yes and I thanked him for his statesmanship.
“The truth is after being a deputy governor, a governor, Vice-president and President for six years, and he took that decision is great.
“He could have caused some problems.
“He had stayed long enough to cause problems.”he concluded.
