Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun state has said it is only illness that can stop President Muhammadu Buhari from seeking a second term.
Amosun lamented that human beings are quick to forget about yesterday, saying given how bad things were before Buhari’s administration came on board, Nigerians should know that a lot has been done to pull Nigeria back on track.
According to him, if Buhari and his administration had not come in time on the rescue mission, “only God knows where Nigeria would have been today.”
“On this 2019 for me, the only thing that can probably prevent Mr. President from contesting is on health ground because if not for this administration of President Muhammadu Buhari only God knows where Nigeria would have been.
“As humans, we quickly forget things, if we could be fair to this administration, they came in at a time the country was plunged into a very deep end and imagine where the country is today. We were in recession and now we are out of it and it is not easy to get to this point.
“Again I am saying it, the only thing that can stop Mr President is on health ground but as we can see today Mr President is back and is rejuvenating and very soon, it would be clear for everybody to see that Mr President is so well now.
Amosun further stated that despite the economic challenges the Buhari administration is facing, it has done tremendously well.
“Meanwhile nobody will take the fact that from the three cardinal points he set for himself, this administration has been doing tremendously well in the aspect of security and we all know that nothing good can happen in any country without adequate security.
“Yes, some people are saying Boko Haram has not yet been conquered but if you look at America and put into consideration how many years it took them to win the war against Osama Bin Laden, among others you will know that this administration should be applauded as far as security is concerned.
“The same thing in our economy, just look at our agriculture it has never been this good. At least, I am a governor and this is my seventh year, this is the first time that truly Nigeria is diversifying,” Amosun said.
