President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Socio-cultural Association, Bello Abdullahi Bodejo has said that anyone who takes the mandate of President Muhammad Buhari to rule the country come 2019, would be in for a bitter fight.
In an intereview with Sun News, Boyejo said, nobody should try and remove Buhari, adding that the eyes of the Fulani all over the country have ‘opened’.
“We would not allow anybody to intimidate the Federal Government or to take Buhari’s mandate; we would be ready to follow him and fight it. We are ready to do anything to ensure that Buhari comes back to complete the good work he is doing. The people criticizing him are just few and nothing would affect his chances of coming back.”
He also reacted to ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter to the president criticizing his performance. Bodejo said:
“President Obasanjo is respected in the country because he ruled Nigeria under the present democracy for eight years. As for the letter he wrote, he knows what he is doing. You know that Obasanjo is now a real politician. But to tell Buhari not to run in 2019, he does not have the power because he has only one vote like any other person.
“What I can assure you is that 87 percent of Nigerians are with Buhari in the race for 2019. Nobody would allow him to poison people’s mind. Those people in the Bush do not know whether Obasanjo asked Buhari not to run for re-election in 2019. I want to also commend some governors who are supporting the government. I thank the 16 governors who have already agreed to give space for the cattle colonies. Obasanjo tore his PDP card in 2015 but he cannot do that to the APC.”
