President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Socio-cultural Association,
Bello Abdullahi Bodejo has said that anyone who takes the
mandate of President Muhammad Buhari to rule the country come
2019, would be in for a bitter fight.
In an intereview with Sun News, Boyejo said, nobody should try
and remove Buhari, adding that the eyes of the Fulani all over the
country have ‘opened’.
“Nobody should try to remove Buhari in 2019. All the Fulani in
Nigeria today, our eyes are open. All of us are behind Buhari; we
have seen that they want to destroy the Fulani because of Buhari.
“We would not allow anybody to intimidate the Federal Government
or to take Buhari’s mandate; we would be ready to follow him and
fight it. We are ready to do anything to ensure that Buhari comes
back to complete the good work he is doing. The people criticizing
him are just few and nothing would affect his chances of coming
He also reacted to ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter to the
president criticizing his performance. 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.
