EDITOR’S DESK: Osinbajo Will NEVER Be President, The Plan Is To Keep Buhari Alive By Whatever Means, Till 2019, By Salisu Abdulai

Let us leave the agitation for Biafra by the people of the South-East, and focus on the political future of our dear country, Nigeria, for now.

It is no longer news that Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, has been down with an unknown ailment, and out of the country for a while now, in the United Kingdom, where he is receiving medical attention.

It is not also news that before he left the country, he did comply with the provisions of the 1999 Constitution, by handing over Presidential powers to the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, to act in his stead, while he is away. Although, some have argued that the Acting President still has limited powers, and cannot function as a fulltime President, but that is not my focus in this piece.

In addition, it is still not news that in the past week, there have been serious calls from Nigerians and some protests as well, demanding that the President resumes work immediately, or resigns; with the protesters arguing that he has breached the provisions of the 1999 Constitution, by staying outside the country for over a continuous period of 90 days, even though that argument is totally force, because Mr President has indeed not breached that part of the Constitution, and you can read the provisions of that section to know why.

Back to the crux of the matter at hand, which is the political future of Nigeria.

In my candid opinion, deep observation, and analysis, the battle right now is not between the South-East and the Northern youths, neither is it between the South-East and the rest of Nigeria. It is not even between South-South, South-East, and the North. This may sound ridiculous, but the real battle at hand is not between the masses and the Presidency. It is between the South-West and the North.

While Nigerians are busy complaining about their sufferings, what to eat, prices of goods and services, and all other shortcomings being experienced under the All Progressives Congress-led, APC, administration, there is a greater battle at hand, which no one seems to be paying any attention to.

Has anyone actually wondered why the ‘Presidency’, would not allow an old and ailing man in the name of our President, to resign, take out time to rest, and possibly recuperate? No? We are busy just protesting without deep reasoning I suppose. Do Nigerians think the Northerners are just going to give up the Presidential powers they worked so hard with ‘sweat and blood’ to regain, or let it slip away from their hands to the South-West, for whatever reason? You can think about that question deeply and give it an unreasonable man’s answer, because this is not a reasonable situation; politics in Nigeria is not reasonable.

The truth is that the APC will do whatever is possible (you can imagine the worst case scenario), to keep President Muhammadu Buhari alive, till 2019. If you are still asking yourself why, please read this article all over again.

Also, for all those arguing using the provisions of the 1999 Constitution, without reading what it actually provides for in the present circumstance, let me inform you that YES, THE PRESIDENT CAN BE IN LONDON UNTIL 2019, it is legal under section 145 of the 1999 Constitution, please read it very technically for more clarity.
