“President Muhammadu Buhari’s body language towards the 2019 general elections is disturbing” were the words of Grassroots Development Party of Nigeria (GDPN) National Publicity Secretary, Barrister Yelwa Abubakar.
Speaking in Abuja today, she said just like every other presidential candidate, the 2019 general election would determine whether Buhari will continue or not.
She advised the President to leave all his 2019 ambitions in God’s hands, while stressing that if he loses election, someone else would continue from there, adding that, “the budget should capture national interest rather than party interests.”
GDPN continued, “It is disturbing that President Muhammadu Buhari presented the 2019 national budget as if he is of being the one to implement it.
“For him to title it as budget of continuity disturbs us all because it’s God and Nigerians that determines his fate in 2019.”
Barrister Yelwa pointed out that Nigerians were looking forward to the President ensuring hitch-free, fair and credible elections in 2019, urging him to tell security agents and the electoral umpire to be neutral.
She cautioned political parties against what she called ‘endorsement bonanza’, stating that political parties should work hard to win the presidential and other elective offices’ election.
She further stated that the conduct of some political parties in alliances showed that some politicians were not ready to make democracy work in Nigeria.
