Borno Governor, Kashim Shettima has warned Nigerians against pushing President Muhammadu Buhari into contesting the 2019 presidential election.
He also warned that it would be equally wrong for anyone to ask the President no to seek second term in office.
Governor Shettima, in an interview with journalists on Sunday, stressed that such decision should be solely made by the President.
“He’s a stabilising factor in this country; he’s a man of impeccable credentials, no matter what you will accuse Buhari of, nobody can accuse Buhari of corruption. But that decision should be made by the President, nobody should ask him not to contest, in the same vein nobody should push him to contest; he has his own health to take care of, he’s not a young man by any standard.
“If the nation still needs him and the nation truly needs the wisdom, the integrity, the commitment of the likes of Buhari. But believe me, whatever decision he takes, we are solidly behind him.”
