Senator Ibrahim Tsauri who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Katsina has said that they are praying for President Muhammadu Buhari to be well so that he will witness his defeat in 2019.
The president is in London on an extended vacation citing medical reasons and the senator who represented Katsina Central Senatorial district between 2003 and 2007 in an interview with The Sun said the PDP was poised to defeat Buhari and his party in 2019. He said:“The presidency has no reasons to hide the true nature of Buhari’s ailment because falling sick is part of human nature. Anybody can fall sick and there is no reason why people should not tell Nigerians the nature of the President’s illness. Buhari is a human being and he can fall sick. If the Presidency is trying to hide the extent or position of the sickness, that is left for them.
“If they are hiding the nature of the sickness, that is their problem but all we know is that Buhari is sick and we pray for him to get better and come back to continue his job. Any right thinking person will not pray for the incapacitation of the President.
According to him, “When Yar’Adua was sick we saw it, when he became incapacitated and we saw what happened next that led us to the doctrine of necessity. If today, Buhari is declared incapacitated, there will be nothing ceremonious about it. We pray for him to get better and come back, but the presidency should be up and doing by giving the people the true picture of the president’s illness. Tsauri noted that Buhari did well for Katsina state when he was chairman of Petroleum Trust Fund but that things have gone from bad to worse now that he is president.
