A Senator from Yobe state and the former governor of the state, Bukar Abba Ibrahim (Yobe East), has pledged his support for President Muhammadu Buhari to become president for life.
The ex-governor while fielding questions from journalists in Abuja on Buhari’s intention to contest the 2019 presidential election, expressed his strong belief that Buhari could be President for the remainder of his life.
He said: “President Buhari can be a life President and we will all support him. If he decides to contest in 2019 on the platform of APC, we will support him to win”, he maintained.
Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim commended President Buhari for assenting North East Development Commission Bill.
The Senator described presidential assent to the North East Development Commission (NEDC) as a landmark towards addressing the pathetic plights of the people living in the region.
The former governor expressed faith in President Buhari’s capacity in tackling insurgency to the barest minimum.
He noted that the signing into law of the NEDC bill was because of Buhari’s understanding of the zone when he served as military administrator of Borno State.
“I must commend President Buhari for signing Northeast Development Commission bill into law. I do know that Buhari understands the economy of North East having been a military administrator of the old Borno State, and how the zone has been devastated now, he is also feeling sympathetic to the people,” he added.
