Christian Leaders Reject Buhari, Urge Gowon To Present Christian Candidate For 2019 Presidential Election

A Christian group United Christian Leaders Eagle Eye Forum (UCLEEF) has rejected calls in some quarters especially from the Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC), urging President Muhammadu Buhari to run for a second term.

The group through its National Chairman, Pastor Aminchi Habu, rejected the calls on Thursday during a press conference/inauguration of an Advisory Board for the group in Abuja.

Habu said the APC led-government has failed Nigerians going by its inability to solve the security challenges, youth unemployment issue, stabilize the economy and reduce poverty in the country.

According to him, it is time for northern leaders and their counterparts in the south to unite and present a formidable candidate that will take over from the present government.

We are calling on prominent Nigerians like Gen. Yakubu Gowon (rtd), Gen. Ibrahim Babangida (rtd), Gen. Abdusalami Abubarkar (rtd), and Gen. Aliyu Gusau (rtd), to team up and work together towards presenting a formidable candidate who will be accepted by all Nigerians in the 2019 Presidential Election.

“Prof. Jerry Gana, Sen. Ibrahim Mantu, Gen. Theophilous Danjuma (rtd); Emir of Zazzua, Dr Shehu Idris; the Northern Elders Forum (NEF); the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF); leaders of Northern Youths Organizations and other prominent Nigerians are not left out in this call,” Habu said.

He urged the youths to actively participate in the political process by obtaining their PVCs so as to wrestle power from the “old brigade politicians” who have ran out of ideas.

He also urged the youths not to mortgage their future for the peanuts they get from the current political elite who have taken the country several steps backwards.

“Just like PDP failed Nigerians before the 2015 election, APC as a party has also failed Nigerians ahead of 2019 election.

“All we see within the ruling party is disunity, and the party is good at blaming PDP for their incompetence to bring solution to Nigeria’s problem.

“And it is also a shame that the party members are fighting themselves in almost all the states of the country.

“If they can’t coordinate themselves, then, how can they coordinate Nigeria; so, on this point, I am saying that PDP and APC have failed Nigeria and we can’t allow them to rule us again.

“In 2015, Nigerians where looking for a saviour to bring them out of hardship, and APC promised us a bright future under the change mantra if elected; the result is this present hardship,” Habu added.

    I don’t get what you people are talking about here,you are calling the architects of Nigeria problem to present a formidable candidate,mind you,whoever they present will be loyal to them which is the same problem facing this Nation for a long time.

    Such your organization need to be hammering on restructuring which is the best solution at the moment, advise people not to participate in any election until this present administration accept that and whoever wins must implement it. You are just there beating around the bush knowing fully well that they have already perfected their election malpractice system, who cares about your pvc?,so with all these bulshit going on,you still see Nigeria as a democratic Nation?

    To the writer your call is hollow. The people you are asking to present us a candidate are the ones that put us in the economic and political quagmire we are in today in Nigeria. These are the people that are milking Nigeria dry. Do you think these people will present a candidate that will stop the source of their ill gotten wealth? Danjuma’s wife is one of the 4 women that have private jets with the least costing more than $1.3 Billion and you guess how much that will be in Naira. Do you think they will present a candidate that will agree to restructuring? Do you think they will present a candidate that will plug the source of their ill gotten wealth?.
