Ayo Fayose is qualified to contest the 2019 presidential election, as said by a former Governor of the old Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa.
According to a statement, Musa said, “It is the right of every Nigerian to aspire to the office of the President of Nigeria. Anybody from any section of the country, who has met the constitutional requirements can vie for the presidency. There should be no restriction because the country is in need of a right leader.
Whoever that will emerge will be president of Nigeria, not the president of a section. Fayose is exercising his right; it is wrong for anybody to vilify him for declaring his ambition. The man is bold, courageous and has put the Buhari government on its toes. Anybody having interest should come out so that we can compare.”
Fayose—a few weeks ago—openly declared his intention to contest the 2019 presidential election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, which brought about opposition from some people who felt it was not yet the turn of the South to seek the exalted position.
Fayose for president? What do you think?
