Northern petrel, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, has recently warned that if the President insists on running for re-election in 2019, he could precipitate a crisis that could hasten the break-up of the country.
Junaid who described Buhari as a monumental failure as president, said the north needs to replace Buhari in 2019 if it wants to retain power.
Junaid had said:
“Although I have not heard of plans to replace him and field another northerner in 2019, I will not be surprised if this happens.
“President Buhari has been a monumental failure and the North shouldn’t support him in 2019 if it wants to retain power. Anti-corruption has always been the hallmark of northerners in government, but this government is the most corrupt in the history of Nigeria.
“All northern leaders, from Tarka to Aminu Kano and Sardauna, are not nepotistic, but the Buhari administration is the most nepotistic that has ever been since independence.
“So, the North is justified culturally, politically and morally to replace Buhari in 2019 if it chooses to do so.”
