Mama Taraba, after declaring her intention to support former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar even if President Muhammadu Buhari opted to contest in 2019 had defended her decision claiming Buhari already promised to occupy the position for a single term.
“Baba Buhari did not tell us that he is going to run in 2019.
“Let me tell you today that if Baba said he is going to contest in 2019, I swear to Allah, I will go before him and kneel and tell him that ‘Baba I am grateful for the opportunity you gave me to serve your government as a minister but Baba just like you know I will support only Atiku because he is my godfather. If Atiku said he is going to contest,” she had said.
