A former military governor of Plateau State during the regime of former military President Ibrahim Babangida, retired Major-General Aliyu Adu Umar Kama, has called on those warming up to contest against President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 to bury their ambition.
Apparently referring his kinsman and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, former Jigawa State governor Sule Lamido and erstwhile deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Kingsley Moghalu among others, Kama said it would be unwise for anyone irrespective of their inclinations to want to contest against President Buhari, who had done tremendously well.
He was speaking Saturday in Abuja at the Hoba community grand reception for the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr Boss Gida Mustapha, by the Hoba elders’ council.
According to Kama, “It would be foolhardy for anyone irrespective of his/her political inclinations to want to contest against President Buhari.”
According to the former Milad, the Hoba people of Adamawa State are grateful to President Buhari for appointing two sons of the community as SGF successively and pledged continuous support for the Buhari administration.
