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.
