We had reported Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Nigeria's former president, on Tuesday, January 23, asked President Muhammadu Buhari, not to seek re-election in 2019 as he is already being pressured to do by some Nigerians.

In a statement: The Way Out: A Clarion Call for Coalition for Nigeria Movement, Obasanjo said President Buhari has performed far below expectation just as he added that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is not the solution to the country's challenges.

Premium Times reported Obasanjo as asking Buhari to honourably dismount from the horse and join the league of former leaders whose experience, influence, wisdom and outreach can be deployed on the side line for the good of the country.

Obasanjo said he was not excited with the way Buhari, who he supported during the 2015 general elections against Goodluck Jonathan, had handled the country. He said even Jonathan had come to realise that he made some mistakes and had publicly regretted them.

However, Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello, on Tuesday, January 23, said President Muhammadu Buhari would win the 2019 presidential election despite opposition from some quarters, Daily Independent reports.

We gathered that Bello while unveiling infrastructural expo held at the Lokoja township stadium to mark the second year anniversary of his administration, said he was surprised that Buhari's critics were deploying all means to bring back Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to governance. He added that they were all bound to fail.

Bello stated this in reaction to former president Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter where he asked President Buhari not to seek reelection in 2019.
