Buhari and Obasanjo

A former Governor of Anambra State, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has said that former President Olusegun Obasanjo, was right to issue a statement asking President Muhammadu Buhari not to pursue a second term next year.

Ezeife who also served as Senior Special Assistant (Political) to Obasanjo, told Daily Trust that there was no way Buhari will win the election in 2019.

“I respect Olusegun Obasanjo. I think God gives him wisdom in the area of politics. Whatever he does, he seems to succeed in politics.

“Therefore, his advice that President Buhari should not re-contest should not surprise anybody. Buhari wants to bring himself down. I don’t think there is any way he can re-contest and win in this Nigeria he messed up. Who will vote for him, the hungry people in Kano or Kaduna?

“Since we know Nigeria, it has never been so bad. Is it the promises he made that were kept? It is very difficult to see how a person who likes Buhari will ask him to go for a second time. Anybody who is asking him to re-contest does not wish him well. Some people don’t know whether it is the same Buhari we elected; who was so strong and young.

“I think it is the best advice. Obasanjo did the same thing in respect to former President Goodluck Jonathan. I support Obasanjo in his position that Buhari should not go and mess himself up trying to contest for a second term,” Ezeife stated.
