Twitter NG Users share who they want to be President in 2019



The next general elections in Nigeria is about 18 months, but it’s no longer news that plans, although stealth, are underway.

Political blogger and media entrepreneur Japheth Omojuwa asked Twitter NG users who they want to be president in 2019 and why.

Here are some of the responses:

BellaNaijarians, who do you want to be president and why?

    If Nigeria must remain one, I think an Igbo candidacy should be considered by the 2 major parties, where as GCFR or VP, Igbos should be brought, hopefully to quell the call for Biafra by secessionists.

    That said, I’d love to see a Yemi Osinbajo (this man has proven competence and wisdom in Baba’s absence), Peter Obi (Showed splendid governance and resources management with Anambra state! Intelligent, knows the numbers, definitely a man to strongly consider) and Raji Fashola (The best of my knowledge, He is quite an objective Politician. Very intelligent too. Lagos state has been better of for his tenure)

    I think Peter Obi and Donald Duke would be a better option… No Buhari, Atiku, Short man Elrufai.. I could manage osinbajo but i think he will be weaker than Jonathan.. In all we want a better, stronger and safer Nigeria

    “El-Rufai…..he’s arrogantly positive and delivers, plus Nigeria needs a stubborn Leader.” Jesus wept!

    Some people and been un-necessarily spiritual, I’m sure even Jesus rolled his eyes.
    El- Rufai, the guy is good abeg.

    Some people still want Buhari? Isn’t it funny how Nigerians enjoy abusive relationships? El Rufai is tough and stubborn, yada yada, same thing we said about Bubu, now his aloofness is irritating the nation. Good luck to y’all up there. I give up!

    LOL! Someone mentioned Jesus. Well, Nigeria actually needs Jesus but He can’t leave His throne to physically rule Nigeria. He has to send a messenger, which I would believe is Osibanjo. Not only is he a man of God, he’s a man of the people too.

    Those of you suggesting Elrufai, may your families be plagued by what he has plagued others with. Arrant nonsense.

      When we say Nigerians are stupid, they will start to vex. You want a northern stubborn Fulani supporter that doesn’t care about following the rule of law even after Buhari.

    Ah. Nigeria my country. They’re still mentioning the same people that have in one way or the other had a hand in pushing Nigeria down the black hole. We never learn, nah, we don’t. Einstein said something along these lines: “Only a mad person does the same damn thing and expects a different result every time”. I leave you people to God. Enjoy your re-election. I am out of hear. One way flight to ***** in seven weeks.

      Me I know I ain’t voting any of these people tho.
      I doesn’t even matter if my choice doesn’t end up winning. Imagine someone suggesting El-Rufai.

      Nigerians still wishing for Elrufai after he silently watched the brazen genocide on Southern Kaduna????…. and paid the killer herdsmen? @ Omojuwa your plans won’t work. Our mumu don do.

    People you can’t advise:
    1) A woman in love
    2) A man with money
    3) Buhari’s supporters
    4) Nnamdi Kanu followers

    Don’t waste your time on them.

    Anyways we’ve started again this year and as usual we’re only focusing on Presidents and Governors.

    What about those imbeciles paying themselves 25mil every month in the senate. Same ol’ same ol’ right? We better start focusing on who gets into the senate house just as much as we focus on who becomes President.

      as in ehn..Nigerians are very impulsive and forgetful..we don’t seem to remember anything and and vey simplistic about our criteria for voting…….oh “donald duke is handsome vote for him.”..”.Rufai is stubborn vote for him”..Peter Obi knows mathematics so vote for him” …We never ask the more relevant and important questions about what we need as a troubled nation

    Check out the guy that posed the question, Omojuwa. The same guy that convinced some airheads that Buhari was the only option before 2015 elections. The poison he helped prepare is still infesting every part of our body as a nation and he’s warming up for another deadly dose. Nigerians are definitely among the most gullible in the world.
    This dude has the confidence to ask this question because he knows how the brains of some Nigerian youths work. He cannot believe his luck, that he’s now somewhat of a mini-celebrity despite the fact that he loudly endorsed a dictator for president. He must be thinking that the only reasonable course of action will be to do it all over again.
    This same mentality is what helps the elite to ravage Nigeria. They know we remember nothing, even if it happened last week.
    Somebody campaigned for a man who has turned out to be the most visionless, divisive and incompetent tyrant. The same person is out shopping for another disaster and some Nigerian youths are shameless enough to honour him with the response he asked for. This can only happen in Nigeria.

      Thought I was the only one who noticed it’s the same political prostitute posing the yeye question.
      Omojuwa, may you be “rewarded” abundantly for the role you have played and want to play in bringing Nigeria to this state. Human beings who have sold their conscience for peanuts.

    Media strategy for El-Rufai! Omojuwa is working for El-Rufai…

    Igbos don’t necessarily need a president…just ballance the equation. A good international air port, railroad, a close seaport in Calabar or PH, good federal roads and infrastructure.
    Include them in national decision making.
    Give the president to whoever can deliver, if he/ she happens to be Igbo, great!
