Muhammadu Buhari was focused in his persistent pursuit of the presidency. Having attained the maximum political office as a military head of state 32 years earlier at the age of 41, Buhari seemed determined to regain political office as president.
He submitted himself to a democratic process that in its course projected the re-engineering of the political landscape. In the end and for the first time in the nation's political history, an incumbent president was defeated in an election.
