aliwakili - 2019 Elections: Obasanjo's Letter can't do anything to Buhari - APC Senator

A Serving Senator, Ali Wakili has weighed in Ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter to President Muhammadu Buhari criticizing his performance in governing Nigeria.

Wakili believes that the letter is not powerful enough to weaken President Buhari’s support base for the 2019 Elections. Wakili, a retired customs officer and chairman of the Senate committee on poverty alleviation, made this statement on Thursday.

He disclosed that no one could change the mind of Northerners on Buhari;

“Unfortunately for him, he cannot change the minds of average northerners on President Buhari.There is no candidate in the North that can defeat Buhari. He (Obasanjo) can only whittle down a little bit of his support base,”

Wakili opined that Obasanjo should have contacted Buhari in private about the issues he highlighted in the controversial 13-page letter, adding that the president’s second term bid should be left to the masses.
