The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), a group comprising elders from the north, says it is the prerogative of President Muhammadu Buhari to decide on whether to re-contest or not.

ACF said this in response to the opposition of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo to the re-election bid of Buhari.

Obasanjo had advised the president to retire from active civil service, accusing him of failing to live up to expectation.

The elder statesman said Buhari’s government had reached its limit.

But in a statement in Kaduna, ACF said Obasanjo is entitled to his opinion.

“The statement credited to former President Obasanjo that President Buhari should not run in the 2019 election, it is his democratic right to express his view like any other Nigerian on all issues, including democracy,” read the statement signed by Muhammad Biu, national publicity secretary of ACF.

“However, it is President Buhari’s prerogative and that of his party to decide on whether to re-contest or not.”
