Why "I'm not in a hurry" to make any decision

A cross section of participants at the event

The President also disclosed why he does not make decisions in a hurry, despite criticisms that has trailed his actions and inactions on some burning national issues, adding that he was fully aware of the issues confronting the country and he is guided by historical antecedents.

President Muhammadu Buhari has rejected accusations of ethnic bias against him in some quarters, especially the Southeast, reminding his accusers that seven states of the North are only represented in his cabinet by junior ministers (Ministers of State), while the Southeast, where he secured only 198,000 votes, have four substantive ministers and seven junior ministers. First among the very important issues that we discussed, was the issue of Mr. President's second term bid and it has the endorsement of all the governors of the APC.

My legal leader was Chief Ahamba (SAN), an Igbo man. That was why when the former President rang me, I went temporarily into a comma. After 27 months, Ahamba presented our case for two hours and 45 minutes. "Virrtually to do anything, I will sit and reflect and continue with my clear conscience".

"In South East, I got 198,000 votes but I have four substantive ministers and seven junior ministers from there", Buhari told the gathering.

"In 2007, who was the Chief Justice?"

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement thursday, invited Nigerians to note that neither the APC governors nor any federal delegation has visited Benue, Taraba or Kaduna State since the unabating killings and the traumatising mass burial of victims.

N.Korea will send advance team to South
Bach did not take questions and was flanked by Olympic and government officials from both countries at a brief news conference. The North will also send cheerleaders, a taekwondo team, musical and cultural ambassadors and a large troupe of officials.

He said: "There is something that hit me very hard and I am happy I hit it back at somebody". The third one (in 2011), who was the Chief Justice? "The same religion and the same tribe".

However, former Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido, has warned that Nigeria's democracy will be tested in 2019 mainly if President Muhammadu Buhari will be willing to accept defeat if and when he loses the election. Have Benue and Taraba now become "no go areas" for President Buhari? "Because the next time I speak with a child, I would rather that it be that I can tell him more about the nature of our politics than can he tell me".

"The truth is after being a deputy governor, a governor, Vice-president and President for six years, and he took that decision". At this stage it causes more problems than it cures. I hope it is understood in the proper perspective.

However, the Presidency denied the interview, saying the person who allegedly granted the interview was not Buhari. It has been such a awful misrepresentation.

While the APC chieftain listed the challenges that will likely draw back smooth sail for Buhari in 2019, the President himself has assured that he's committed to conducting a free and fair election in 2019, with the results acceptable to all who may participate in the poll.
