“It goes without saying” that Buhari will Contest for Presidency in 2019 – Adebayo Shittu



"It goes without saying" that Buhari will Contest for Presidency in 2019 - Minister of Communications Adebayo Shittu - BellaNaija

President Muhammadu Buhari

The Minister of Communications Adebayo Shittu has said that President Muhammadu Buhari must contest for presidency in 2019, Punch reports.

Shittu said this in an interview with State House correspondents after a meeting with the president at the Presidential Villa.

He stated that although the president is yet to make up his mind concerning seeking reelection, he believes that himself and others can prevail upon the president.

Asked if the president would seek reelection, Shittu said:

It goes without saying. I mean if you have a child who goes to primary school and he does well; he proceeds to secondary school and he does well, and you keep asking if he will be going to university. It goes with out saying.

By the grace of God, we his (Buhari’s) ardent supporters who appreciate his worth on behalf of millions of Nigerians would urge him to re-contest.

I know he has not made up his mind but I can say that some of us can assist him in making up his mind so that nigeria can continue to enjoy stability and progress in our land.

    Here they go again!!!!

    These politicians spend more time canvassing for re-election as opposed to doing the actual job they were elected to do. Not to worry Mr Adebayo Shittu, it may go without saying that he’s running for a 2nd term but we the ‘voters’ will decide who we want as President…

    He’s a sitting president. It’s kinda unusual for a sitting president NOT to run
