Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, says there will be no automatic presidential ticket
for President Buhari in the 2019 general election. Okorocha said this today while speaking with state house correspondents
after he had a closed-door meeting with President Buhari.
Okorocha who was being specific about the presidential election, said if President Buhari decides to rerun for office in 2019, he would
have to also campaign and contest for the
party’s ticket during the party’s presidential
primary election. He said
“We won’t allow the imposition of candidates.
It must be democratically done. If President Bihari will lead the ship in 2019, it must be
democratically done and I say democratically, transparently.”
President Buhari has not come out to say he would be seeking a second term in office.
