Senator Canvasses ‘Life President’ for Buhari

by on November 3, 2017
Former Yobe state governor, Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim (Yobe East) has said that given his doggedness in the fight against corrup­tion, President Muham­madu Buhari could be made life president.
The ex-governor, who is a serving Senator, while fielding questions from journalists in Abuja on Buhari’s intention to con­test the 2019, expressed his strong belief that Bu­hari could be President within the remainig part of his life.
He said: “President Buhari can be a life Presi­dent and we will all sup­port him. If he decides to contest in 2019 on the platform of APC, we will support him to win”, he maintained.
Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim commended President Buhari for as­senting North East Devel­opment Commission Bill.
The lawmaker de­scribed presidential as­sent to the North East Development Commis­sion (NEDC) as a land­mark towards addressing the pathetic plights of the people living in the re­gion.
The former governor expressed faith in Presi­dent Buhari’s capacity in tackling insurgency to the barest minimum.
He noted that the sign­ing into law of the NEDC bill was because of Bu­hari’s understanding of the zone when he served as military administrator of Borno State.
“I must commend Pres­ident Buhari for signing Northeast Development Commission bill into law. I do know that Buhari un­derstands the economy of North East having been a military administrator of the old Borno State, and how the zone has been devastated now, he is also feeling sympathetic to the people,” he added.
