Osinbajo cannot run for president in 2019 if anything happens to President Buhari - Northern Elders say

Northern Elders Forum says that acting president Yemi Osinbajo cannot replace President Buhari as a presidential candidate in the 2019 election if anything happens to Buhari, who is currently in the UK for medical checkup.

Speaking in an interview with The New Telegraph, Chairman of the Forum, Professor Ango Abdullahi, said if President Buhari fails to seek re-election in 2019, the North must retain the presidency by fielding a candidate from the region through the ruling APC.


"The constitutional provision says that in the event that the president dies in office or becomes incapacitated for one reason or the other and cannot perform the duties of his office, he will be succeeded by the Vice president. But no one is in a position to know at what point he is going to recover fully and come back to office, or whether the unexpected could happen. If the worst case scenario happens, and Buhari is not back on seat, the constitution is very clear that the vice president takes over. And what we then expect is that he will take that tenure to its logical end and from there, the politics of power sharing will take precedence over anything else. When the unexpected happens, in 2019, we will be back to our position that the north should be treated equitably and fairly. And we expect that another northern candidate will emerge as presidential candidate on the platform of APC”he said

They love power but never do anything good with it. Just look at the poverty and illiteracy level in Northern Nigeria.

That's why the country is in such a mess. We're less concerned with the better candidate who can deliver good but we prefyour own brother even if he has nothing to offer.

mr ango bokoharam, i pity all u aboki's. You are inherently genetically handicapped. You folks r mentally, socially, cognitively and even mostly physically challenged. The power you folks so strenuously always want to hold unto has done you absolutely no good. Northern Nigeria is the most backward race in west africa and one of the worst in the world. why wont you allow us continue to take you people as brothers and help you, because by the time you people are intellectually emancipated,you wont be clamoring for power, cos you'd be self sufficient and satisfied, your days of shameless begging an hiding behind religious intolerance and violence, would be over.

Can you guys (be it Igbo,Hausa,Yoruba and others) quit talking about who rules next and who doesn't when Buhari is still alive. Talking about this over a sick man is distasteful and disgusting.

If you want to rule, please rule only the Northern part of Nigeria. We are tired of cows ruling us and herdsmen killing us or boko haram giving us sleepless nights. Let the country divide into two, let the South rule the South while the North rule the North. We are tired!!!!

Is this the kind of thing that they should even be saying at this time when Mr President is still alife? Are you wishing him dead? How can you say "if anything happens to Buhari? Watch your choice of words and stop being tribalistic

I tire for them oh! Who is struggling with them? Let Nigeria decide who dey want. Only the votes in the North cannot count. You need votes from the South, East and West. So take a chill pill

If Nigeria decides that it is Osinbajo they want, there is nothing you or anybody can do about it. So let Nigeria decide!

Lawyer said...

This country should just divide abeg. I am tired of these arrogant fools boasting up and down. Because of them, boko haram is disturbing us. Because of them, fulani herdsmen are destroying our farms and killing us yet they are preaching that we should go into agriculture when their useless herdsmen wont allow our farms to produce crops. Because of them, they are killing chrisians in Kaduna. Because of them, Nigeria cannot move forward as a result of their backward religion & culture of marrying under-aged girls. Up till now, they have not been able to solve the problem of the killings in Southern Kaduna and the killings done by the herdsmen and they want power and want us to vote for them. Arant Nonsense!

Abeg help me ask them. Na real idiots them be true true

No problem. Osinbajo will rule the South while you Northern elders will rule your North. Muslims should stay in the North while christians stay in the South. This country must divide because we are fed up of muslims killing christians. This is the only way that peace can be restored
