BREAKING: President Buhari will contest in 2019
The National coordinator of Buhari Campaign Organisation (BCO), Alhaji Danladi Garba Pasali, has said that incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari is fully set to re-contest his position come 2019.
He said the BCO is getting set to mobilise one million man rally in support of the group’s “clarion call” on the President to accept to run again in next year’s election.
Pasali made this known , at a press conference in Jos the Plateau State capital, supported by more than twenty different political groups in preparations to welcome the president to the State next Thursday.
“President Buhari, has no option, he will contest in 2019, because there is no vacancy in the Presidency,” he said.
“I can authoritatively say he will contest, it’s a matter of time, the law in Nigeria has specified the right time for people to come out and express their aspiration”, he stressed.
Pasali said the President is a man that respects the rule of law, that explains why he is still waiting for the right time to come forward .
He said Plateau State is the home of Buhari, and he was very sure that the people would come out en masse to welcome Mr. President.
“Plateau is 100 percent APC, because of the good work that President Buhari and Governor Simon Lalong have been putting in place, that is why the People will still vote them in,” he said.
According to Pasali, Buhari’s diversification policy, his fight against corruption, insurgency and general insecurity are enough reasons for them to call on him to contest.
“Considering all the peace work and other things that Buhari and Lalong, have put in place, it will then be a great disservice to Nigerians and this country, should they decided not to re-contest,” Pasali stressed.
