Former minister of information, Prince Tony Momoh, has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari will contest in 2019 because he is entitled to a second term in office.

Momoh, a personal friend of the president and founding member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said this in a chat with Sun.

He also declared that Buhari is now fully fit and even healthier than many APC leaders.

His words: “He (Buhari) is entitled to two terms. We should be thankful to God Almighty that we have a Buhari now who understands Nigeria more than any other Nigerian leader apart from the late Dr. Nnamdi Azikwe.

“His presence in government is not an accident. We give the impression that someone who has been sick cannot work. I believe his sickness was exacerbated by what he discovered was on the ground. I was at the caucus meeting some couple of days ago; I was surprised to see him looking healthier than most of us. He is back fully at work.

“One thing I can assure you is that if Buhari is strong enough and he knows he can do the job, he will contest and win. In fact, he cannot lose any election in Nigeria. One thing is when he secures a terrain you can’t take it from him.

“Those who are going to vote are not the people on the social media; it is the ordinary people. His support base is the ordinary man. And he won’t take up a job he cannot do. Nigeria has to be re-grounded.”
