The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has stated that whatever President Muhammadu Buhari says concerning his intention to run for a second term in office will have grave consequences on a lot of Nigerians.
Yesterday, during an appearance on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ which was hosted by Seun Okinbaloye, he said that while President Buhari is yet to declare his intentions ahead of 2019, Buhari might be trying to simply focus on delivering on his campaign promises.
Shehu said he doesn’t know if President Buhari will run for re-election in 2019.
According to him, “it is clear that if he takes a position, if he says he is not going to contest, certainly that may be the end of governance in Nigeria because it is only going to be about 2019 and if he says he is going to contest, certainly the political ambition of so many people will certainly come to an end.
“But I think he is being strategic for now, he wants to deliver on pledges and promises made in 2015 and because whatever comes out from his mouth has a grievous implication to governance in Nigeria as it is now.”
