President Muhammadu Buhari declared on Monday that while other politicians were only focusing on how to defeat him next year, his main concern was how to make life better for Nigerians.

He made the declaration while meeting with British Prime Minister, Theresa May, in London, according to a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina.

Why it matters: Nigerians go to the polls early next year to elect a new president as well as federal and state lawmakers, and President Buhari, who announced last week that he would seek another term in office, has been using every opportunity for his re-election bid. He’s set to meet with President Donald Trump on April 30.

“We campaigned on three major issues, to secure the country, revive the economy and fight corruption,” Mr. Buhari said. “We have elections next year, politicians are already preoccupied with the polls, but I am bothered more about security and the economy”.

The President also delved into other topics, including the teaching of history in school, saying that 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.”
