Secretary to the government of the federation, Babachir Lawal, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will remain in office till the year 2023, when he will complete two terms in office.
Lawal addressing pro-Buhari supporters who staged a solidarity rally in Abuja, said that some people want Buhari to die, but assured that the President will outlive all of them.
He accused some of those criticizing Buhari administration of poor performance of having benefited from the Jonathan administration, and contributed to today’s economic problems.
According to the him, by the time Buhari ends his two terms in office, it will be difficult for anti-Buhari elements to drag Nigeria back to the former President Goodluck Jonathan’s era.
Buhari, according to him, never envisaged the scope of Nigeria’’s problems until he assumed office after the 2015 polls.
“Baba Buhari didn’t anticipate the problem that we are in. The people who caused this problem are the one challenging the government. I tell you that they will fail in the name of God,” Lawal said.
“Shamelessly, they accused the president of not performing. And in fact, some of them wished him dead. But I can assure you that by the grace of God, he will outlive all of them.
“I assure you that by the grace of God, in the next one year, Nigeria will have a booming economy. The foundation being laid by the government is solid. And nobody, even after the president has finished his eight years, can ever take us back to the pre-2015 days. This, I can assure you,” he added.
