Amidst the unending security and financial currently ravaging the nation, what better counsel can anyone offer president Buhari than he should step down in 2019 and let a capable leader handle the seat of power.
Indeed, in all of the uprising, Nigerians have at different times requested that Buhari step down even before the end of his tenure. As suspected, some of their request stems from his failing health that kept him in a London medical faculty for 103 days last year. Knowing full well that the office seems to hold his health to ransom, should Buhari value the office more than his well being?
It might interest you to know that despite the popular demand that Buhari steps down after his first tenure some others are strongly agitating that he comes for a second term. From threats by Pro-Buhari senators if he is not given a chance in 2019, to Governor Ganduje’s promise of 5 million “illegal” voters if Buhari re-contests, you might want to put that staunch loyalty to question. Consequently following Buhari’s declaration to run for a second term in 2019, can we conclude that was a self made decision?
You would recall that in 2011 Buhari said if given the chance he would only rule as president for one term. Indeed, with an attempt to trust his words and deliver good leadership in four years, he was given a shot at presidency in 2015. Looking back at the past three years of Buahri’s government, as a Nigerian, would you say you are proud of the decision you made at the April 2015 elections?
Fashola was given a shot at governorship for Lagos in 2007 and despite his unimpressive performance he was ready to step down from the seat as he requested for only four years to make a change. In the case of Buhari however, with three years of failed government and no thoughts on stepping down, rather an attempt at a continuum in 2019, can he still win the hearts of Nigerians in the next election?
