“We do not have an alternative to President Muhammadu Buhari for now.”
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, on Thursday said this while speaking at the Unity Fountain in Abuja at a rally organised by the Democratic Youth Congress, led by its National Chairman, Kassim Mohammed.
The group had urged Buhari to declare his intention to contest in the 2019 presidential election.
The SGF, who was represented by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Political Matters, Gideon Sammani, said Buhari was widely known for his stance against corruption and indiscipline, noting that many people feared him because of his uncompromising position on graft.
Mustapha argued that it was the corrupt individuals that were against the President because they were apprehensive that they might be brought to book.
He added, “We all know that Buhari is transparent, honest. He has come with the change philosophy. He has lived for this long to bring change to this nation. Since his military days, he stood to fight corruption and indiscipline.
“Many people fear him because he does not compromise, and corrupt people are afraid that they will be brought to book. And those who have already looted the treasury of this nation are being probed by the security agencies. By the grace of God Buhari will not relent in this fight.
“He will continue; the politics of this nation is no more the politics of money or do-or-die. Anybody who wants to lead this nation must make sacrifices. Buhari has already transformed and changed the image of leadership and that of our leaders in this country, both locally and internationally,” the SGF noted.
