- Senate minority leader, Biodun Olujimi, says there is no reason for Nigerians to re-elect President Buhari in 2019
- She said the situation in the country at present requires a leader with vision and ability to put things right, like Atiku
- Olujimi said if Nigerians evaluate Buhari’s performance in various areas over the past four years, they will see that they have no reason to vote for him
Senator Biodun Olujimi, the minority leader of the Senate and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s senatorial candidate for Ekiti South, has stated that Nigerians have no reason to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election.
She made the comment during the distribution of Mathematics and English language textbooks to public secondary schools in her senatorial district on Thursday, December 6, Punch reports.
Legit.ng gathers that the senator, who was represented by her campaign director, Sanya Adesua, said in 2019, Nigerians should vote based on past records and ability to deliver.
She said: “President Buhari does not have anything to campaign with as his achievements in the last four years. Maybe that is why he has been finding it difficult to address Nigerians.
“The situation in the country at present requires a leader with vision and ability to put things right. That is where the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, comes in.
“For now, we have a president who cannot address Nigerians. We have a president with identity crisis.
“Evaluate the Buhari-led government for the past four years – look at the condition of roads across the country, look at electricity supply, consider water situation and the growing insecurity – you will discover that there is no reason to vote for Buhari.”
Olujimi stressed that the distribution of books was borne out of her desire to continue to touch lives, and not because of the coming elections.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that prominent Yoruba elders under the aegis of the Southwest Forum adopted Atiku Abubakar for the 2019 presidency.
The group made the declaration at the end of their colloquium tagged “2019: South-West Speaks” which took place at Muson Centre, Onikan Lagos.
Those present at the event included the Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Lagos, Jimi Agbaje, and his running mate, Haleemat Busari; Advanced Democratic Party (ADP) candidate, Babatunde Gbadamosi; and PDP governorship candidate in Oyo state, Engr Seyi Makinde.
Others were the Senate minority leader, Senator Abiodun Olujimi; national vice-chairman, southwest PDP, Dr Eddy Olafeso; former national secretary, Chief Ebenezer Babatope; PDP chairman in Lagos, Dr Adegbola Dominic and the ADP chairman, Barr Adewole Bolaji.
