The Social Democratic Party (SDP) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari, to reverse his decision to seek re-election in 2019.
The party’s interim national chairman, Chief Olu Falae, made the call after a close door meeting which lasted for more than two hours, with former president Olusegun Obasanjo, in Abeokuta.
Falae, addressing newsmen after the meeting held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library Complex, urged Buhari to do himself a favour, by not contesting the 2019 presidential poll.
Buhari government, according to him, has failed to restructure the country, prevent senseless killings of farmers by the armed herdsmen, stop Boko Haram attacks, as well as revamp the nation’s economy.
Falae explained that the meeting discussed the need to change the situation in Nigeria for better.
A former presidential spokesman, Chief Doyin Okupe, and a former Ogun State governorship candidate, Prince Gboyega Isiaka, who were at the venue of the meeting came out separately, about an hour after the departure of Falae, from the complex.
Prince Gboyega Isiaka, talking with Rockcity FM, an hour later, said his meeting with Obasanjo, is a routine and has no link with the Falae’s visit, as being speculated.
Doctor Doyin Okupe of the Accord Party and former Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) boss, Doctor Olu Agunloye, separately left the venue some minutes after Falae departure.Please subscribe to our newsletter
