Dr. SKC Ogbonnia, a Presidential aspirant under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has warned the party against fielding President Muhammadu Buhari as its candidate in 2019.
Dr Ogbonnia revealed that APC will lose the 2019 Presidential election if Buhari emerges as its candidate.
Speaking to newsmen yesterday in Enugu, Ogbonnia said Buhari’s candidacy won’t fly as he had failed to deliver even on the fight against corruption.
The presidential aspirant stressed that there was nowhere, both in the party and in the Nigerian constitution where it was stated that the president must be a person from a particular section or tribe in Nigeria at any point in time.
He said “The Buhari tragedy is that he is jammed between the rule of law and leadership.Our problem is the lack of will for implementation of policies in Nigeria. It is the turn of the masses other than tribe.
“The easiest problem to solve in Nigeria is corruption but we chose not to solve it.
“I still score President Buhari low in the fight against corruption even though he has made progress.
“I will defeat Buhari in four zones of the country. With Buhari, APC cannot win in 2019 but I would rather give him the Mandela option which is to resign than the Mugabe option which will disgrace him out.”
