"Obasanjo Is Not God"- Shittu Lauds Buhari's Re-election Bid

Nigerians Want Me To Be President Beyond 2019 – Buhari 2019: ADP won't lose sleep over Buhari's declaration

President Muhammadu Buhari will on Monday leave Abuja for an official visit to United Kingdom, the President's Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu disclosed in a statement in Abuja on Sunday.

The Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to deal ruthlessly with a former governor of the state, Adams Oshiomhole for alleged corrupt practices while he was in power.

"This is the same Buhari who told us in 2015 that he will not seek re-election after completing his first tenure on account of old age and health grounds".

"The President felt so happy and excited because of this unity in the party; he will now consider and also accept the appeal by several members of the society, party and everybody that he will contest the 2019 election". We have no apologies for that. "That is why we want him to serve another term".

"President Buhari needs to consolidate on the achievements his administration has recorded in over three years, especially in economic growth, anti-graft war, security and youth development".

"Esteemed Nigerians home and overseas, friends and business investors in Nigeria, should please see through the veil of the motive behind the Abuja House, Kensington London demonstration", the source said.

Minister of communications, Adebayo Shittu, has played down former president njOlusegun Obasanjo's political influence, saying he can not stop Muhammadu Buhari winning in 2019.

While speaking with newsmen in Abuja, Shittu said the move by President Buhari is a welcomed development. Even more, it has become obvious that there are more sycophants around President Buhari than truth-sayers. He needs to have time to reflect, refurbish physically and recoup and after appropriate rest, once again, join the stock of Nigerian leaders whose experience, influence, wisdom and outreach can be deployed on the sideline for the good of the country.

"NCAN with structure in the 773 local governments across the country has been mobilization Nigerians with the collection of signatures through its sign4buhari project as well as open canvassing support of Nigerian in several platforms to join in the call for president Buhari to run for another term". "His place in history is already assured", Obasanjo said in the public statement.
