The north is making moves to get an alternative to President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of the 2019 general election. It was further learnt that as the hunt commences, former President Olusegun Obasanjo seems to have settled for between his two allies, former governors of Jigawa and Kano, Sule Lamido and Rabiu Kwankwaso. Sources privy to the political situations in the north told us in the afternoon of Monday, January 23, 2017 that 2019 was one of the issues discussed when former President Goodluck Jonathan visited Obasanjo on Friday, January 20. According to one of the sources, Obasanjo, who is no longer happy with the current administration’s style of government, did not come out straight on his choice for 2019 at the meeting. However, his current ‘body language’ shows that he favours Lamido. nawa
When contacted, the national president of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF), Alhaji Yerima Shettima, told us that both Lamido and Kwankwaso are stooges to Obasanjo. “To us, the choice of Sule Lamido and Kwankwaso is no news. We know they are Obasanjo’s cronies and Obasanjo will do everything to make sure that his interests are protected. Unfortunately, it is no longer going to be business as usual and Obasanjo’s interest cannot supersede the interest of the entire north and the entire north has not come out with anybody for now; we are still consulting and rubbing minds, but certainly, we will find an alternative to this government. You can be rest assured of that. But the choice of Obasanjo can no longer be forced on any Nigerian. Lamido and Kwankwaso are not our choices for now,” Yerima said adding that the duo could be made president and vice president in Ota farms owned by Obasanjo.
