Senator Shehu Sani (APC-Kaduna Central) has stated that there would be grave consequences for many Nigerians whether Buhari decides to re-contest the presidency in 2019 or not.
Sani made his comments on Thursday, September 7, during an interview session on a Channels Television’s programme, Politics Today.
He stated:“No one can clearly say if President Buhari will run for re-election in 2019.
“But it is clear that if he takes a position, if he says he is not going to contest, certainly that may be the end of governance in Nigeria because it is only going to be about 2019; and if he says he is going to contest, certainly the political ambition of so many people will certainly come to an end.
“But I think he is being strategic for now, he wants to deliver on pledges and promises made in 2015 and because whatever comes out from his mouth has grievous implications to governance in Nigeria as it is now.”
The ruling party chairman spoke on the heels of a comment credited to Aisha Alhassan, that President Buhari had said he would not seek re-election.
