Gen Magoro: Buhari can rule Nigeria even at 90

imageChairman, Con­tact and Mo­bilisation Sub-Committee, Buhari Campaign Organ­isation, North West, Gen­eral Mohammed Magoro (retd) has called on Nigeri­ans who are saying that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Con­gress (APC), General Mu­hammadu Buhari (retd) is too old to rule the country to have a rethink.

Fielding questions from newsmen yesterday at a press briefing, General Ma­goro directed such Nigerians to take a look at one of the African countries, Zimba­bwe, where the 90-year-old President Robert Mugabe is steering the affairs of that country.

This was even as the Chairman, Advisory Coun­cil, Sir Ahmadu Bello Me­morial Foundation, Honour­able Justice Mamman Nasir (retd) called on Nigerians to avoid violence, but vote for the candidates of their choice during the elections.

“So the answer to your question whether Buhari at 72, is not too old to rule Nigeria is for you to look at Zimbabwe, how old is Mugabe, I won’t say more than this”. Magoro said.

He said Buhari’s cam­paign rally in the North West was a huge success, and that what was left to be done, was ‘mop up operations’ which is expected to be done by states governorship candidates as well as candidates of States Houses of Assembly.

He added, “Buhari is ready for presidential debate any time he is called upon to do so. I want to say that there is no convincing reason to shift the election, it does not make any sense, it will mean that we are not serious”.

In his remarks, Justice Nasir said, “The Founda­tion resolved at its Advisory Council meeting on Febru­ary 5, 2015 to draw the at­tention of all well-meaning Nigerians and the interna­tional community on criti­cal issues on the upcoming elections and the security of the nation. -SunNews
