Buhari Will Consider Is Health Before Running The Second Term by donprincebigt(m): 7:02am On Jan 22, 2018
President Muhammadu Buhari will consider his state of health before taking the decision on whether to seek re -election in 2019 or not, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity , Mr . Femi Adesina , stated in an interview on Sunday .
Buhari had a serious health challenge in 2017 that made him to seek medical attention outside the country twice.
On his return to the country after his first medical trip , the President stated that he had never been that sick in his life.
While answering questions on Buhari’ s health status and his seeking re - election in 2019, Adesina said the President would not do whatever he believed his health could not sustain.
Adesina said , “ The President is not a frivolous person . If he thinks that his health cannot carry anything, he will not do it.
“ Every day you see the President , you see a glow about him and you see freshness about him . I think he is even in a better state than when he came in 2015. It ’ s all to the glory of God .
“ Once he assesses that his health can carry it, there ’ s nothing wrong if he steps into the fray . But he has the final decision . ”
The presidential spokesman urged Nigerians to wait for the President to tell them his position on the second - term issue.
On a recent media report that Buhari has re - appointed the Minister of Transportation , Rotimi Amaechi, as the Director- General of his campaign organisation , Adesina said such an appointment could only be made after a candidate had emerged.
“ I believe that things like the DG will come when you have become a candidate . If the President steps into the fray now , he is an aspirant just like any other aspirant. Having a DG comes when you become a candidate of the party, ” he argued.
He claimed Buhari had done more than enough to seek re -election , saying “ The things he has done are apparent : security, despite the challenges of the moment , you can’ t rule out what he has done in security.
“ Economy went into recession , stayed there just for one year , it has come out and the indices are good. Even the World Bank has projected 2. 5 per cent growth for Nigeria this year .
“ Three things he appointed for himself: one , to secure the country; two , to fight corruption; and three , to revive the economy . They are going well. ”
He reiterated Buhari ’ s promise to deliver free and fair elections to the country , stressing that the President fulfilled the promise in all the elections conducted under his watch .
“ You would have noticed that since this government came , there have been elections the APC didn ’ t have to win . You saw Anambra. You saw a senatorial election there . Some months ago , in November , you saw the governorship election . If APC had wanted to overrun Anambra, using federal might , it would have done that to win the election .
“ Election had held in Bayelsa under this administration, the APC didn ’ t do it. Ondo, the APC won fair and square. Kogi , it won fair and square . Where the APC wins, it wins. Where it loses , it loses . That ’ s the attitude of the President . Your party doesn ’ t have to win by hook or crook. ”
