President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Socio-cultural Association, Bello Abdullahi Bodejo has said that the open letter former President Olusegun Obasanjo wrote to President Muhammad Buhari last month, asking him to not run in 2019 cannot have any effect on the incumbent’s political chances.

Boyejo told SUN news that Obasanjo was simply playing politics with the letter. He said  people in the Bush do not know whether Obasanjo asked Buhari not to run for re-election in 2019.

Social media pundits believe this statement could mean President Buhari has a very strong base of permanent voters card carrying supporters located somewhere near or in the ‘bush’.

Bodejo said, “President Obasanjo is respected in the country because he ruled Nigeria under the present democracy for eight years. As for the letter he wrote, he knows what he is doing. You know that Obasanjo is now a real politician. But to tell Buhari not to run in 2019, he does not have the power because he has only one vote like any other person.

“What I can assure you is that 87 percent of Nigerians are with Buhari in the race for 2019. Nobody would allow him to poison people’s mind. Those people in the Bush do not know whether Obasanjo asked Buhari not to run for re-election in 2019. I want to also commend some governors who are supporting the government. I thank the 16 governors who have already agreed to give space for the cattle colonies. Obasanjo tore his PDP card in 2015 but he cannot do that to the APC,” he added.
