NORTHERN LEADERS DIVIDED OVER BUHARI

Northern leaders appear divided over the fate of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is currently on vacation in the United Kingdom.

While Dr Junaid Mohammed, a northern leader, Second Republic lawmaker and convener, Coalition of Northern Politicians, Academics and Businessmen, told Sunday Tribune that Buhari’s presidency is dead, another northern leader, a former military governor of Kaduna State, Brigadier-General Jafar Isah, said the administration is very much alive.

Speaking with Sunday Tribune in exclusive interviews, both northern leaders though agreed that the government of Buhari is facing a hard time, they were at variance on the fate of the administration and its chances with the electorate in 2019.

According to Mohammed, the president had consistently shown a lack of capacity to administer Nigeria, a claim which Isah strongly disputed. For Isah, Buhari is the best to happen to the country, claiming the president, with the steady progress he has made so far, is building a strong foundation for Nigeria’s future.
