President Muhammadu Buhari may not re-contest in 2019. This was insinuated by Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC. Tinubu also added that the wave of defections to the party by members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was not good for the ruling party. He further stated that the APC may crash especially, if the President (Buhari) decides to do just a term.
The former Lagos governor said, “The President Buhari I know, has very good intentions for Nigeria, and he would want to handover to someone he deems not to be corrupt. It is even possible that the President already has a successor in mind. And the danger is this; at the fullness of time, these PDP defectors, will form an unholy alliance with some politicians in APC and across the board, to thwart the President’s succession plan. And that will be the end of the APC, and a new rising for the PDP.”
Tinubu also added that he is not excited by the defection of PDP politicians. ” I’m not elated about the news of former senators, and even serving ones, defecting to the APC. Even if a governor from the opposition defects today, I will not celebrate it. I think the President should be leery and extremely cautious of these PDP defectors, and should not give them any serious responsibilities. Because at the appropriate time, they will manifest great evil and disaster against the President and the APC. ”
