Sickness. Yes, sickness is the only thing that can prevent President Muhammad Buhari from returning to Aso Rock in 2019.
And that is according to the former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu.
Kalu who spoke with journalists at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, on Sunday night said the president is ready for the task ahead.
He said: “Buhari is an honest man and will tell Nigerians at the right time whether he will seek re- election or not. We pray that his health gets better and that his doctors give him a clean bill of health.
“You know Buhari is also a man of conscience, if he feels his health will not allow him to seek re- election he will not go ahead. But, if he feels he can run, he will seek re- election.
“It his right, he is entitled to second term. Even, people that failed in their class can also repeat in either elementary or secondary school.”
He added: “Buhari is working. The Second Niger Bridge for instance is being constructed, so you see that though things are difficult, but it could be better.”
Kalu said though people of the South East, have been cheated in many ways, the Buhari administration would provide a window for new a beginning for Igbos.
