EDITOR’S DESK: Out Of 180 Million Nigerians, Only Ailing Muhammadu Buhari Is Qualified To Be The Nation’s President, By Salisu Abdulai

I would like to start this piece by welcoming President Muhammadu Buhari back to the country, paying little or no attention the controversy that surrounded his return from London, United Kingdom, UK, where he was receiving medical attention for over 100 days.

I have sat back and watched the events unfold, right from when the President arrived the country, his speech on Monday, during the much awaited nationwide Presidential broadcast, the ridiculous comments by his Aides on the President not working from his office for now, because of rats and renovations, the cancellation of the Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting today, the reactions from Nigerians, and many other events.

In the midst of all the drama going on in the country at this time with the return of the President, only one thing keeps bugging my mind, and that is, “why is this unwilling employee, being forced on his unwilling employers?”


For those that did not get it, the unwilling employee here is President Muhammadu Buhari, and the unwilling employers are Nigerians.

Why is Mr. President, who I believe with the whole of my heart is no longer interested in ruling this nation, but loves this nation dearly, being forced by whatever power or cabal to continue ruling?

In past couple of months a lot has happened with the health of Buhari, who is first of all a human being, before being a President. Do these powerful forces or cabal care at all about this human being, or is it a political do or die affair that power must at no cost land in the hands of the South-West, in the person of the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo?

Is the North not confident enough to believe that they can wrestle back power from the South-West in 2019, even if Yemi Osinbajo should take over now? Or is there something else which Nigerians are completely shut out from, as to why this 74 year old ailing man must continue on his job, by fire by force, damning all odds and every consequence, and more importantly the lives of the over 180 million Nigerians, who happen to be his employers technically?

Who do you want as Nigeria's 2019 President???

Nigeria is at a state where we need a very vibrant and energetic sound mind to direct its affairs in the right direction. The nation’s citizens at this time need hope. Do the cabals really believe this man can still deliver, or does it not matter anymore, and their personal agenda surpasses that of the nation at this critical moment?

With the way things are done right now by the Presidency; the lies, the deceit, the uncaring attitude and body language being displayed at this time, if care is not taken, can lead Nigerians to their worst.

It really saddens me that our once very admirable President, who many believed would change this nation, and came out in millions to vote into power, has now being turned to an object of mockery on the social media.

Here is hoping that in the coming weeks, the cabal does the needful, by listening to the cry of the masses, which I think should matter first, because it is total torture to force an unwilling employee on unwilling employers, who no longer need his services.

Let Osinbajo take over as President, let Muhammadu Buhari resign and retain his honour, and have his name in the history book of this great nation.

God bless our country Nigeria.
