Goodluck Jonathan Never Symbolised Anything for Nigeria - Shittu

The Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, has come out to say why he thinks President Muhammadu Buhari should run for a re-election in 2019. He gave his views using the former president, Goodluck Jonathan as a yardstick to back up his point.

Speaking to newsmen (Tribune), the minister said that Nigerians would beg President Buhari to run again in 2019 because he has a father figure and a body language which is enough to make things happen in every sector of the economy.

He said, “We still have two years. But I want to assure you that by the grace of God, we would urge him to seek re-election because it is only once in a while that you get a father figure for a nation to move forward and attain greatness.”  

He continued by saying, “He is unlike former President Goodluck Jonathan, who never, with due respect, symbolized anything for the country. “Buhari’s body language is enough to compel people to do things rightly. 

In the area of finances, electricity and others. A lot of people have had to sit up even before he speaks. 

So, we need the Buhari father figure for a length of time for the country to get its act, so we need the Buhari figure for a length of time for the country to get its act right to attain greatness under his leadership”
