‘President must have a 2nd term,’ Wamakko says

Wamakko said further that Buhari would need more than four years to fix Nigeria’s problems.


Former Sokoto State Governor, Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko has said that President Muhammadu Buhari must be allowed to rule beyond 2019.

The former governor made the comments on Wednesday, November 4, 2015, while meeting with law students from the Usmanu Danfodio University, Sokoto.

“To me, President Buhari must be allowed to rule beyond 2019 to address the numerous challenges bedeviling the country. Four years cannot be enough to address the rot done to the country in the last 30 years,” Wamakko said.

“We cannot expect miracle from the president in view of the enormous damage done to the country, he needs to be given opportunity to be around beyond 2019,” he added.

Wamakko is now a Senator representing the Sokoto North Senatorial District.

Buhari took office in May 2015 and will complete his first four-year term in 2019.
