Even if he is on a wheelchair, the North will still vote for Pres. Buhari- ACF member, Mohammed Yakubu, says

A member of the National Executive Committee of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), a socio-cultural and pressure group for northern Nigeria, Mohammed Alhaji Yakubu, says even if President Buhari who is currently on medical vacation in the UK, ends up on a wheelchair, the North will still vote for him come 2019.  The ACF chieftain said this in an interview with The Sun.


According to him, president Buhari should not resign his position just because he is ill.
"I will not advise him to resign. You will recall that when former President Olusegun Obasanjo was asking the then ailing President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua to resign, I granted an interview to your newspaper, as the youth leader of Northern Union, telling Nigerians that even on wheelchair, we will support Yar’Adua to rule the country. Unfortunately he died.   I am also making the same statement today that Buhari should not resign, even if he is on wheelchair, North and people of Nigeria will vote him in 2019. I am not just associating myself with Buhari, I am advocating for good governance under President Buhari. I don’t think that it is proper for anybody to humiliate Buhari out of office by mounting pressure on him to resign. It is not fair; it is not just, it is not proper. We have election time table, if you don’t like him, vote him out during the election, but I will not support anybody that will want to humiliate the President out of office. As long as he is alive, it is not right to demand of him to resign"he said
Speaking further, he said that President Buhari's health challenge would not in anyway stop him from performing his duty. He went on to give examples of past US Presidents who despite their health challenges lived up to expectations.
"Yes, I can give example from America where we copied our democracy from; if you remember, one of the early American Presidents, Franklin D. Roosevelt served his country for 12 years. As a young man, Roosevelt became crippled by polio. He could not stand, and he spent most of his life on a wheelchair. When many people thought that the illness would end his political career, Roosevelt became American President for the first time in 1933. Roosevelt pioneered a lot of developments for America, his government spent lots of money to create new job, built roads, bridges, new schools and did other important things to help the population. Americans saw that Roosevelt could do a lot for his country and they elected him for a second time in 1936 on wheelchair. So we should do away with the mentality that when the President’s health challenge is physical, he cannot perform his official duty, no, President Buhari can still function in office even on wheelchair as long as his illness has nothing to do with his brain and reasoning faculty".

What arrogance? I hate to read this their nonsense. They talk trash from their mouth as if they own others. These group of illiterates. I particularly like Buhari and pray for his recovery but this arrogance is getting too much. Restructure the country and let this people go take care of themselves.

This is the problem with Nigeria. Ethnicity is preferred to competence. Even with Buhari's two legs, is he up to Roosevelt?, talk more of when he is cripple. Restructure dis country or let us go our seperate ways.even after the fact that northerners have ruled this country for over 40 years. When you mention poverty, they are still number 1. When will you pple start voting competence. Mtchew. I'm fed up with this country

Roosevelt's mind was as sharp as any throughout his 12 years. Questions were never raised as to his mental and psychological capacity.

ABOKI ! Wait 1st and let him show up in wheelchair in 2019. True Federalism or Separation, Buhari will have to choose one. Nigeria is getting to that point where we all want measurable results and this will not be traded for anything.
