NIGERIA. With most of the country’s past Leaders totally against a Buhari Presidency in 2019, and fully in support of an Atiku Presidency, with the hope to restore the country’s lost glory and alleviate the current squalor and sufferings of the populace.
Many political observers wonder whose endorsements President Muhammadu Buhari would be relying on, for success at the 2019 polls.
This was evident during the recent turbaning of the PDP Presidential Candidate H.E. Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, as the seventh Waziri of the Adamawa Emirate.
President Goodluck Jonathan
It was a memorable occasion that saw former Presidents of the country, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and Dr Goodluck Jonathan, fly all the way to Adamawa State, to show great support for the PDP Candidate, ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Prior to this also, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, had publicly rejected President Muhammadu Buhari for the 2019 Presidency, in an open letter, in which he advised him not to seek a second term in office, citing a lack of capacity and very poor performance in governance.
President Olusegun Obasanjo
The former President, had also publicly recently endorsed Waziri Atiku Abubakar, who was not in his good books for many years.
He publicly forgave former vice-president Atiku, and has since then shown public support for him and fully endorsed the PDP Candidate for the 2019 Presidency, to the s chagrin of many.
Four Council of State Presidents
Elsewhere, former Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida, had also written a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, condemning his government, and like Olusegun Obasanjo, advising the President not to seek re-election in 2019
This is the confirmation that he is indeed in support of an Atiku Presidency come 2019, and it’s expected that the former Head of State will in some way, play a major role in the Atiku 2019 Presidential Campaign, behind the scene.
