Abba Alli, a Fomer Nigerian Senator and a Classmate to President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that the president should run for a second term in 2019 in order to fully sanitise the political system.
He said this while reacting to some of the comments of Nigerians, trending in the media, that Buhari should resign and should never run for presidency in 2019.
“President Buhari is hale and hearty; let me first clear that impression on his health,” “Those urging him to resign on health grounds have forgotten that God is the creator of mankind and he has the final say on when one will die.
“I have seen an old man in Katsina here who was in coma for four months, yet the old man thereafter lived for another eight years before he eventually died.
“I have also seen a situation where a man was seen today in good health and died the following day not as a result of accident but normal natural death.
“President Buhari should go for a second term in office. He has started a good job which is acknowledged both within the country and globally. And it is better he contests again for a second term in office so that he can finish the good job he has started.”
