Tinubu's re-election sparks debate

Wednesday, May 29, 2024, will mark President Tinubu's one year in office. However, Tinubu's economic reforms have so far led to the fluctuation in the price of the Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) and the continuous free fall of the naira against the dollar, bringing untold hardship to the people.

As a result, a group of northern elders said they regretted voting for Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election, further threatening the Nigerian leader ahead of the 2027 election.

Will Nigerians re-elect Tinubu in 2027?

In an exclusive interview with Legit.ng on Monday, April 29, 2024, the former governorship aspirant in Plateau state, Johnson, said although the country was in bad shape in recent times due to economic hardship, Tinubu's re-election was assured because Nigerians trusted his policies.

Comrade Johnson explained the two major reasons Nigerians will hand over the presidency to Tinubu in 2027:

1. Economy: The economy is turning around, but if you can be sincere all that is needed is for Nigerians to be more patient. Very soon, we will see the result. Some of the recent policies by the present administration will strengthen the economy; for example, dollars should not be used as collateral.

2. Tinubu's economic policies: Based on his policies, I'm sure Nigerians can still trust him by re-electing him in 2027; my prayer for him is God should grant him mercies and, most importantly, a long life.

"I'm sure with President Bola Tinubu, a solid foundation for our country can be guaranteed," Comrade Johnson added.

Why Plateau should get ministerial slot

Comrade Johnson, however, noted that Plateau state deserved a ministerial slot in President Tinubu's cabinet, urging the Nigerian leader to do the needful.

The APC chieftain opined thus:

“By now, he should have known who is implementing his policies and who is sabotaging them. Change is natural if it can give positive results. In conclusion, I'm calling on the president to give Plateau state a slot for ministerial positions because it has constitutional rights, more so in voting, where we came 12th in voting for his elections.”

Why Tinubu may lose re-election in 2027

Legit.ng reported earlier that APC chieftain, Salihu Lukman, made a strong revelation about the chances of the APC in the 2027 election.

Lukman disclosed that President Bola Tinubu was at risk of losing re-election in the 2027 poll.

Speaking with newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday, December 13, he dropped the hint of an impending rebellion among the ranks of the party in no distant time from now.
