Abuja - Dr. Junaid Mohammed, a second republic lawmaker and a foremost commentator on northern Nigerian affairs, has described President Muhammadu Buhari as a 'monumental failure' as president.
Naij reports that Mohammed warned that crisis may erupt which could hasten the break-up of the country if Buhari decides to run for re-election in 2019.
“If Buhari decides to contest in 2019, he will be defeated, except if he rigs the election and there will be violence which may lead to the break-up of Nigeria," he said.
Junaid Mohammed said Nigeria may break up if Buhari is re-elected in 2019.
Mohammed said if the north wants to retain power, it needs to replace Buhari in 2019 and not support him.
In a swift reaction, presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said the masses are solidly behind Buhari for 2019 because the incumbent president is not stealing their money and their future.
