Exclusive: President Buhari Set To Resign, OBJ Favours Kwankwaso For VP, Cabal Goes For Tambuwal

There were strong indications Friday that the ailing president, Muhammadu Buhari may have agreed to resign owing to his inability to recover from his protracted illness, which has seen him not being able to effectively perform his official duties as the President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria for over a month now.

Report reaching our news desk from a close family member of the president says the president actually called for a meeting earlier in the week between himself and three ex-heads of state, Ibrahim Babangida, Adbusalami Abubakar and Olusegun Obasanjo where he confidently expressed his willingness to relinquish power to vice president Yemi Osinbajo to enable him take proper care of himself.

Our source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity explained however, that there is some degree of confusion as to who is chosen to deputise Osinbajo.

In his words; “At this point, it is obvious that Mr. President does not have the capacity to continue as the president due to his health which is not improving since his return from medical vacation in the UK, and if you must know, age is not on his side which makes it absolutely necessary for him to take time out to concentrate on his health for Nigeria to move forward.”

He further explained that the issue of who becomes the VP to Osinbajo is what the leaders are currently debating.

Image result for kwankwaso and tambuwalAccording to him; ” It is clear that ex-president Obasanjo is not just favouring Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano state and a serving senator, he’s also pulling all the strings he has through some traditional rulers and northern elders to ensure his candidate pulls through, while the cabal and some section of the national assembly leadership are gunning  for Rt. Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, a former speaker of the house of Reps. and current governor of Sokoto state.

The problem the cabal has against Kwankwaso is that they believe he is over ambitious and would be difficult to be put under any form of control if he eventually becomes the VP and subsequently the President in 2019,” he concluded.

As it stands, Tambuwal is more favoured as being more cool-headed, considering his network as an ex-speaker which spreads across the 36states of the federation and breaks through political party barriers. He is seen as someone who could bridge the gap created by North/South socio-political dichotomy.

Musa Kwankwaso on the other hand, could also enjoy the endorsement of the national leader of the APC, Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu who is said not to be in good relationship with Aminu Tambuwal at the moment.

Sources close to Tinubu opined that it will be very difficult, if not totally impossible for Tinubu to support Tambuwal to become the vice president considering the role he allegedly played in frustrating the Speakership bid of Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, who was Tinubu’s candidate as against the current speaker, Hon. Yakubu Dogara.

In the coming days, the political history of Nigeria will be taking a different turn if all the calculations, permutations and speculations become reality, as the issue of who becomes the VP is as important as who becomes the APC Presidential candidate in 2019.

As political pundits continue to analyse and watchers speculate, one can only wish that this whole health issue of the president is handled with utmost political diplomacy so as not to plunge the nation into a constitutional quagmire, so that there will be no need to be invoke the “doctrine of necessity” to put the nation on the right track again.

  99. Some stuff was pretty good in the update. But seriously, stop doing radical changes.The comment additions were nice, but some of the layout conflicted with previous ideas. The worst I've seen is the super simplified video rating system. The old system was great, and this one makes it less reliable.The biggest revision I want to see is staying a little truer to the design Youtube started with, while incorporating new Web technologies.

  100. « Il n’y a pas d’ennemi intérieur »Et pourtant, c’est exactement ce qu’ils sont. C’est comme ça que la population « normale » c’est à dire non endoctrinée les perçois, et c’est comme ça qu’eux mêmes se perçoivent, qui applaudissent Merah, Fofana ou Ben Laden, qui tirent sur la police ou caillassent des bus, tels des terroristes en culotte courte.

  106. The money market fund or account manager determines what kind of assets they consider worthy. Read the prospectus for the fund or account. In addition, the fund or account manager has some flexibility in how they implement the fund or account guidelines. There may be some federal standards too. Not sure about that.Buyer Beware!The “gold standard” for money market funds is Vanguard’s treasury MM fund, which invests entirely in treasury bonds.
