Minister says Buhari is a blessing
Shittu also said that there is no other party in Nigeria that can field a leader that commands respect like Buhari.
According to Daily Post, the minister said that nobody can compete with the APC In the upcoming 2019 elections.
He said “Currently, I don’t see any competition to APC.
“The fact that you have crisis – even in individual homes, we have crisis. That does not make that family to go into extinction.
“You must appreciate that political parties are not classrooms where you have one master, one teacher who beats everybody to line. We have a party which came as a result of the agglomeration of several interests who all believed in the symbol that President Muhammadu Buhari represents.
“No other party has that symbolic leader who can be respected, who commands the followership of millions of ordinary Nigerians, and I believe all active participants in the APC appreciate that Buhari is a blessing to the party.
“He’s the one whose euphoria, whose whirlwind brought a lot of people into political offices in 2015 and he is still available to do the same magic there. In any case, if anybody doubts you, you want to ask them who is the alternative who can beat Buhari and which is the alternative political party which can compete with APC in 2019?”
Buhari should forget about 2019
In January 2018, Senator Shehu Sani told the Presidentto forget about the call for him to run in 2019, and work towards ending the clashes between Fulani herdsmen and farmers.
Sani also said that it is not right to be talking of re-election, when people are losing their lives and properties are being destroyed.
The Senator also told Buhari that the lives of Nigerians are more important than his second term campaign.
