Nigerians Want Me To Be President Beyond 2019

Nigerians Want Me To Be President Beyond 2019

A civil society organisation, OurMumuDonDo Movement, has condemened the re-election bid declaration by President Muhammadu Buhari.

"And the other happened in 2011". While addressing representatives of ethnic groups and the Taraba State government at the Government House in Jalingo on March 3, 2018, the president claimed that his administration had delivered on the electoral promises he made before his victory in 2015.

A source in the presidency said because some people were seriously affected by President Buhari anti-corruption war, they were disappointed when the president declared his interest in running for a second term.

Some Nigerians in their reaction were of the opinion that Nigeria deserves a younger president, noting that President Buhari deserves to "rest". Obasanjo was president here, he wanted a third term and he didn't get it.

"What I believe as a member of the party is that the work that Mr President has started a little over three years ago is so fundamental to the development of this country that he needs the opportunity to build on that and to consolidate on it".

With Nigerians preparing to vote next year, former Nigerian leaders have urged Buhari not to seek a second term in office.

"It was an orchestrated act of desperation and a ploy to blackmail and hoodwink the President from concentrating on his anti corruption campaign, which is fast gaining grounds locally and internationally", the source said.

When contacted, Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, said the protest would not distract Buhari from his mission in the UK.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Adesina said: "But I know the President, as a very, very responsible man".

Adesina further said that the President took him and other presidential aides unawares when he announced his intention to run for re-election in 2019.

"There were a lot of convincing and appeals".

The president's spokesman said the declaration would not affect governance, saying: "I think the president had just picked the right time to make his intentions known, whether it will affect governance or not depends on the personality of who is the president".
