A group known as Wailing Wailers, has said President Muhammadu Buhari cannot contest for Presidency in 2019 because he plunged the nation’s economy into recession.
The group in a statement on Tuesday by its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Usman Abubakar, described the claims that Buhari may run for Presidency in 2019 as unscrupulous venture.
Recall that the President’s Media aide, Garba Shehu, had given some pointers that Buhari may run for 2019 election.
Reacting to Shehu’s claim, the group said, “Our attention has been drawn to the news from the presidency stating that President Buhari who under 2 years of his rulership collapsed Nigerian economy and every other system of the country, is nursing an unscrupulous ambition of running for a second tenure in 2019.
“We believe that this call is a joke or a figment of the imagination of those working for the presidency as they will not want to miss all the benefits and the paraphernalia they currently enjoy at the expense of the suffering masses to come to an end.
“How can a man with no basic leadership and managerial skill continue to plunge the country into comatose and the people not react?
“Buhari believes that it is his birth right to foist himself on the people of Nigeria, whether we like it or not?
“Those pushing for Buhari’s 2019 agenda are certainly an enemy of the Nigerian people, and will henceforth be seen and treated as such. It is irreconcilable that a man who has plunged Nigeria into unrecoverable recession, depression, inflation and famine should run for a second tenure.”
