2019 Presidential Election: Babangida, Obasanjo Shortlist Buhari Replacement- Report

According to report,with President Buhari absent from the country since May of this year there has been a lot of uncertainty on the political terrain, none more so than who will handle the country come 2019.

With 2017 careening towards a conclusion, the idea of the 2019 elections looms ever larger and there are scrambles to sort out allegiances and so on.

According to a report by the Sun, the top political players in the country are of the opinion that President Buhari has no plans to run in 2019 and are therefore looking for who to place in power.

Central to this plot is General Ibrahim Babangida who was reported to have met with fellow political players ex-National Security Adviser, General Aliyu Gusau and former head of State Abdulsalami Abubakar.

It is reported that Abubakar in the meeting was hoping to be endorsed by IBB and Gusau and is hopeful for their support. It was also reported that Abubakar and Gusau are on a shortlist to be successors to Buhari.

A big stumbling block, however, is former President Olusegun Obasanjo who has been quoted as saying his former deputy would never be president when he is alive.
