Second Republic Lawmaker, Dr. Junaid Mohammed has said that President Muhammadu Buhari had not done enough to be re-elected for second term in office.
Mohammed said the Northerners was not aware of Buhari’s perceived second term ambition, adding that there is no evidence to reward him with the second term.
In his words, while speaking to Vanguard: “I have not seen evidence as a Nigerian, who goes to the market that the life of the average Nigerian is getting better. It is either these governors have their ambition or maybe they are beginning to think of what they can do.
He further expressed that: “They are making noise as if 2019 is achievable on the pages of Newspapers. I have no objection to any politician having an ambition or a politician who is trying to play games with our own situation.
He also talked about the ruling party: In the case of APC, we have not seen any clear sign that they are serious or they mean business.
Still stressing on the APC: “There was a meeting of the leaders of the party in Ibadan, where Bisi Akande said the candidacy of their party in 2019 is an open one. That is a fair comment but for a Nigerian or an African, who is in power to come to say that he is not going to contest, I don’t know. That is not African.
He finally concluded on the President Buhari: “But as far as I am concerned, I have not seen rational evidence to the effect that somebody has achieved and therefore, deserves to be repaid with another term. Politics has never been a rational game in Nigeria. Sometimes people vote in Nigeria because of primordial sentiment and geopolitics.”
