Why I wasn't surprised by my victory - Buhari

A day after he was declared winner of the March 28 presidential election, President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), says he is not surprised that he defeated incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan.
He made this position known in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, on Wednesday.
According to Buhari, the successful merger of the All Progressives Congress in 2013 signalled the beginning of the end of Jonathan’s administration.
He said, “I am not surprised because of how we came into the merger. The main opposition parties in Nigeria decided to come together to face the ruling party. That means we had an additional spread and politicians across the length and breadth of the country; so, I was not surprised”.
On his plans, Buhari said immediately after he is sworn in on May 29, he would begin a process of national reconciliation, especially in the violence-prone areas of the Niger Delta and the North-East.
He said, “The actual division that is worth bothering about in terms of social instability and insecurity are in the North-East and the in the Niger Delta, which I think have been with this country long enough that we know how they started and what stage they are in now and we are confident that we will rapidly give attention to the insecurity in the country and I believe that we will deal with them within a few months in office”.
