Reverend Joseph Ayoade Adekunle, the Oyo State Chairman of the Christian Welfare Initiative (CWI), has advised President Muhammadu Buhari against seeking relection in 2019.
Adekunle anchored his call on the President’s “inability to take firm decisions,” stressing that the issues regarding corruption were swept under the carpet.
The cleric spoke while fielding questions from newsmen after a prayer session, organised by the Ona-Ara Local Government Area chapter of the CWI in Oyo State, at God Loving Church, Ifelodun, Olunloyo Area, Ibadan, yesterday.
Adekunle, however, commended Buhari’s “good intentions of trying to put the country on the steady path of development.”
He said, “There is nothing Buhari can do to win back the hearts of many Nigerians. So, the best thing for him is to forget the ambition and leave the stage when the ovation is loudest.”
This is coming at a time when former President, Olusegun Obasanjo had advised Buhari against seeking re-election in 2019 election due to the failure of the government. http://dailypost.ng/2018/01/23/obasanjos-statement-warning-buhari-not-re-contest-full-text/
Obasanjo had also lambasted the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), insisting that they cannot solve Nigeria’s problems.
