2019 is fast approaching, Interestingly we talk about that just barely 16 months into the first term of President Buhari. But there is a side question to whether he will contest again or lay the foundation for a youthful APC to take Nigeria further ...

Dailypost carries a news of Ex President Obasanjo saying he never said Busari shouldnot go for 2nd term..

Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has distanced himself from reports claiming that he warned President Muhammadu Buhari against seeking re-election in 2019.

In the statement issued on Sunday, in Abeokuta, Ogun State, the former President disclosed that he had not spoken to Nwokedi in the last three years, and wondered why any news would be attributed to him.

According to Obasanjo, “My belief is that democracy allowed for anybody including President Buhari for that matter to contest any election and it is the prerogative rights of Nigerians to vote or not to vote for them.

“I have not communicated with Alex in the last three years, so how could a story be credited to me, when I did not authorize such or communicate with him in the last three years? Obasanjo queried.

He further said “not even me, can advise my children not to seek for elective post. It is part of freedom of democracy.
