Why Some Politicians Want Buhari For Second Term – Shehu Sani
Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central said on Wednesday that the reason why the masses want President Muhammadu Buhari to re-contest in 2019 is different from that of some political elites.
He said that while the masses genuinely want Buhari to seek re-election, the political elites see him as “meal and mill”.
According to Sani, most of the political elites want Buhari for second time for their own survival not because they believe in his capacity.
The senator once praised the Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Aisha Alhassan over her statement to support former Vice President Atiku Abubakar’s presidential ambition.
Recalled that the minister vowed to support Abubakar if Buhari would be contesting in 2019, adding that the president had only promised to do one term to clear the mess of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
However Sani posited that President Buhari is old enough and has spent longer time more than anybody in his cabinet in government to know whether to run again or quit.
“Whether Baba will seek re-election or not remains his individual decision to make. He is old enough and has been in politics and government longer than anyone in his party or cabinet as to know what to do and the right time to do it.
Sani says that some politicians see Buhari as lifebuoy for relevance in the political landscape of the country.
