Hajia Fatima Mohammed a Member of the Board of Trustees, of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in a recent interview with Leadership has foretold a commotion if the current President of Nigeria Mohammadu Buhari does not contest for the presidency seat again in 2019.
She said that there will be hunger strikes and demonstrations by members of the party, and women on the streets across Nigeria. Fatima Mohammed said President Muhammadu Buhari is doing so well and he merits more than four years to turn Nigeria round.
Hajia Fatima Mohammed said:
“I will score, President Buhari 80 per cent so far. This is because during the era of Former President Goodluck Jonathan, even those of us in Abuja, couldn’t sleep with both our eyes closed because of the unprecedented level of insecurity in the country. We could hardly go to market or worship centers. “People were postponing events including weddings because of insecurity crisis. It is important that we do not forget where we are coming from so soon. Security is paramount in the life of any government. Since President Buhari emerged, we can see that the first thing he did was to focus on security and I give him 100 per cent for that.”
Hajia Fatima Mohammed is of the notion that APC will overcome its present challenges and President Buhari will represent the party again in 2019. She asked all those people eyeing 2019 to go and sleep and should put their minds to rest because Buhari is for 2019.
Fatima Mohammed said:
“In 2019, there is no vacancy. We will mobilize for Buhari to contest in 2019. Four years is not enough for him to set Nigeria fully on the right path. He needs eight years to do that.”
She added that president Buhari, will not reject the nomination or else there would be demonstrations nationwide. “He will not (decline). She said “I will mobilize women and youths for Buhari. Four years is not enough to change this country. The anti- corruption war cannot be finished in four years. This is barely two years and we are having more corruption cases happening.”
Hajia Fatima Mohammed held that the rigorousness of work to be done in Nigeria requires a personality like Buhari to do it.
