A source, knowledgeable of happenings within the corridors of power, Aso Rock, has said there is a security report concerning the health of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, the APC presidential standard bearer.
The source told Daily Post that the 72 year-old former Head of State may not live more than a year or two if he assumes office as Nigeria’s President in 2015.
“Many people think the presidency or the PDP is trying to portray Buhari in a bad light or declare him unfit for the nation’s topmost job but the information I am giving you is authentic,” he assured.
Asked to provide specifics of the content of the security report to back up his claim, the source said: “A part of it goes thus: “Should Buhari win, he may not be able to complete a single four-year tenure due to his health condition as he continues to manage his health secretly.”
“Let me ask you these questions: Why do you think Tinubu was ready to risk a Muslim/Muslim ticket? Why do you think he presented himself at the eleventh hour when talks were on to pick Buhari’s running mate? When he failed in his quest, why do you think he picked his associate of 20 years?
“The truth is that Tinubu and his cohorts knows the demands of office will tell on Buhari and same will either kill him or weigh him down excessively,” the source added.
North not backing Buhari
The source further told Daily Post that powers that be in the North are not comfortable with the choice of Buhari.
“Look, many eminent personalities in the North are not supporting Buhari’s candidature because they also know this fact that I am saying,” he said.
“They are aware that Buhari may not see 2019, so they don’t want to gamble. We all know there exists a Northern cabal and these guys will rather wait for President Jonathan to complete his eight years and hand over to them. They want eight years too!
“So they have agreed not to throw their weight behind Buhari, who may not even see four years through. The North do not want a repetition of the Yar’adua saga; there are being very careful.
“This is because if anything happens to Buhari, power will return to the South; South-West for that matter and this may happen less than a decade after Baba Obasanjo left Aso Rock.
“Not just that, power will effectively be in the hands of the rogue called Bola Tinubu because Osinbajo is his confirmed stooge. Can you now see all these indices? Now, who in his or her right senses would believe that the North are backing Buhari. Certainly, not the North I know.”
