Buhari Must Work to Earn Automatic Ticket For Second Term – Ango Abdullahi

Ango Abdullahi

The national chairman of the Northern Nigeria Union (NNU), Professor Ango Abdulahi, has stated that President Muhammadu must work hard to get an automatic ticket for a second term.

According to him, Buhari’s endorsement for a second term in office by some Northern elements is not synonymous to an automatic ticket.

Abdulahi spoke Wednesday at a news conference in Abuja on the Union’s readiness to host the 5th Commemorative lecture in honour of late Dr Olusola Saraki.

He said Buhari must earn the endorsement of the North, stressing, “Well, do not expect that the fact that Buhari is of the northern extraction will automatic translate to satisfying every aspiration, yearning of the nooks and crannies of northern Nigeria.

“He was aware of this but I think that he has kept to the promise of he is the president of Nigeria. He belongs to all Nigerians. So, we take it that he doesn’t belong to the north or any particular person.

“He belongs to no one. I think that we should take it that he is the president of the federal republic of Nigeria and he will serve in the best interest of Nigeria. Well, there are shortcomings and we hope that someday, it will be made up.”
