Victory!!! President Buhari Laughs Hard At PDP, Ready To Come Back Home To End Corruption And ALL Looters For Good

President Muhammadu Buhari, has said he feels ready to return home from his medical leave in Britain, and is only awaiting his Doctor’s permission.
Recall, that Buhari’s extended absence for an undisclosed ailment, his second this year, left many in Nigeria, questioning whether he was well enough to run the country.
The President, has spent more time since the beginning of 2017 in Britain, than in Nigeria.
That had sparked numerous protests, including demands that Buhari should resign, as well as calls for more transparency about the President’s condition.
“I feel I could go home, but the Doctors are in charge”, Buhari said, according to the Presidency’s statement on Saturday, adding that, there has been a “tremendous improvement” in his health.
Photos released by the Presidency, show Buhari standing outdoors, grinning, and wearing sunglasses, while holding a large “Get well soon” card, with a handful of officials around him in a leafy residential area.
The 74-year-old President, had already been in London from January to March, for sick a leave, before returning to Britain in May, for further treatment.
Both times, the President appointed his Deputy, Yemi Osinbajo, to act in his stead.
Buhari’s lengthy illness has sparked speculations about his ability to seek a second term in 2019. Politicians and Diplomats have started privately discussing potential candidates, should the current President not run.
If Buhari does not stand, it could also lead to greater ethnic and religious tensions in Nigeria, long riven by divisions between the largely Muslim North, and the mostly Christian South.
Members of both the Muslim North and Christian South, feel that a representative from either side should hold the Presidency for the maximum two terms, that is eight years, before the opposite faction’s candidate can then lead the nation.
Yet Buhari’s appointment of Osinbajo, a Southern Christian, as Acting President, did help allay fears of the intense political infighting of 2010, after then-President, Umaru Yar’Adua, fell ill and failed to nominate someone to run the country.
It was only when Yar’Adua, a Northern Muslim, died in May that year, that his Vice President, Goodluck Jonathan, became Nigeria’s Leader, resolving the Constitutional crisis.
When Jonathan successfully won the Presidential election in 2011, one that many viewed as a vote that should have given the Muslim North its second term in the Presidency, hundreds died in riots protesting against that victory.

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