President of the Nigeria Youth Organisation, NYO, Abdullahi Wali, has vowed to sue President Muhammadu Buhari if he refuses to contest in the 2019 presidential election.
In a statement made available to reporters in Abuja on Monday, Wali said he was reacting to a statement credited to Buhari during a meeting with APC governors.
He said that Buhari was quoted to have pleaded for more time to decide whether he would run or not.
Wali stated that the President has achieved enough to seek re-election, listing the achievements to include: the effective implementation of Treasury Single Account, TSA, diversification of the economy, anti-corruption war, war against insurgency, the complete refund of Paris club loan deduction to states among others.
He said, “If Buhari decides not to run in 2019, the achievements recorded by his administration will vanish as the vampires of our common treasury will resurrect and loot everything living the masses with nothing.
“Therefore, he needs to solidify his achievement before handing over to hopefully a youth. “NYO agenda is to build Nigerian youths to actively participate in leadership for national unity and development and will therefore not sit and watch the solid foundation made by this administration for the benefit of Nigerian youths sink.
“I have directed my lawyers to sue the president if he refuses to run and will also mobilise millions of youths under my leadership to stage the highest rally ever in Nigeria until the president accepts to run.”
