“The only thing that can stop Mr President re-election is on health ground” – says Governor Amosun
According to a report by Daily Post, Ogun state Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has said that only health issues can stop President Muhammadu Buhari, from seeking re-election in 2019.
This is contained in a statement from the Governor during an interview with newsmen after a book launch and scholarship scheme, to commemorate the one year remembrance of Chief Lamidi Sofenwa, at the Nobel House College in Abeokuta on Saturday.
According to him, the Buhari-led government came at a time Nigeria was experiencing security challenges, which resulted in loss of lives and property in the North East region.
“The only thing that can probably prevent Mr. President from contesting is on health ground because if not for this administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, only God knows where Nigeria would have been.”
He acknowledged efforts from the presidency to clear out the recession mess the country has been battling with, noting that the imagination of where the country would have been with the patriotic spirit of the government cannot be imagined.
‘As human beings, we quickly forget things if we would be fair to this administration, they came in, at a very deep end and imagine where the country is today. We were in recession and now we are out of it and it not easy to get to this point,’ Amosun said.
‘Again, I am saying it, the only thing that can stop Mr President is on health ground but as we can see today Mr President is back rejuvenating and very soon it would be clear for everybody to see that Mr President is so well now,’ he added.
