Buhari's minister calls Atiku 'Nigeria's president for 2019′

Buhari's minister calls Atiku 'Nigeria's president for 2019′

In a recorded video of her Sallah visit to former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Mrs Alhassan vows loyalty to Atiku as her "godfather" who will be Nigeria's President come 2019.

The group noted that since the Minister had never been found wanting in her job as a member of the Federal Executive Council, she has done no wrong in expressing her support for Abubakar since President Buhari has neither personally nor publicly declared his intention to run for another term in office.

"I can assure you that if Baba Buhari tells us today that he wants to re-contest, I swear to God I will go to him and tell him "Baba, I thank you for giving me the opportunity to work under you as minister".

"I sincerely hope that the President will take this as a sign of warning that something is missing within his political party", Junaid said. If Atiku says he is going to contest.

"Besides, President Muhammadu Buhari has not told anyone that he is interested in seeking re-election in 2019". Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has played down on comments that envisage he will be an aspirant, but the feeling that he has the ambition remains. "President Buhari must not make that mistake".

"The Minister of Women Affairs has confirmed to BBC that she made the comments".

An oil embargo would plunge North Korea into political and economic turmoil that could irreversibly change the security equation. The White House said Trump told Moon that Washington was willing to approve arms sales to bolster its defense capabilities.

"If because of what I said, I am sacked, it will not bother me because I believe in Allah, that my time has elapsed that is why". They have been sending it and spreading that if Baba sees this I will be sacked. "The earlier the president decides, the better for us all", he said.

Lately, there have been speculations that the billionaire politician may return to PDP on which platform he was Nigeria's VP for eight years to contest for the presidency in 2019.

In the interview he granted in Yola, the Adamawa State capital where he celebrated the Eid-el- Kabir festival, he said, "Honestly speaking, I'm still a member of the APC; I was part of all the processes, including campaigns until success was achieved".

According to him, his party, the APC still has a lot to do and had already "failed in many fronts".

"In any case, President Muhammadu Buhari would be very suspicious of Mrs. Aisha Alhassan if she dumps Alhaji Atiku Abubakar who is her benefactor for political correctness".

It's doubtful if Buhari can resist calls for her sack which will certainly continue to get louder and louder from supporters of the President in the days ahead.
