The Director General of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), Osita Okechukwu, has said any individual plotting to replace President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 do not mean well for Nigeria.

He said the interest of Nigeria would be better served if Buhari was given an opportunity to consolidate on the gains so far recorded since he assumed office in 2015.

The VON boss stated that President Buhari still had a lot to offer Nigeria and Nigerians even as he turned 75 yesterday.

Speaking to Punch, Okechukwu said: “In recent times, one had never seen Nigerians collectively united as we did in prayers, especially when he returned from the medical trip abroad and went back. To be honest, in the midst of those troubling sick months, we were worried to the marrow and it was as if Nigeria was sick.

“For this, I rededicate my faith in Almighty God and glorify His name, as it demonstrated that nothing is impossible in the hands of God.

“In sum, one is praying for more years for Mr. President, so as to consolidate this laudable programme of sanitising the system and laying the solid foundation for an industrial society.

“It is crucial for Nigerians to vote for him (in 2019). Those who are clamouring to displace him are more or less self-serving.”
