President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election campaign spokesperson, Festus Keyamo (SAN), has urged Presidential candidates to declare their health status.

Keyamo, who said Buhari is fit to contest in 2019, said he was in support of the call for candidates to declare their health status in order for Nigerians to know if they were fit or not.

According to the Cable, he said: “I agree that candidates should declare their health status. But if somebody is sick and is well and now discloses that he is well now, fine. He (Buhari) is ready to go; he is fit to go.

“Abacha was not sick at all, no history; yet he slumped and died.

“I also support the call for presidential debates.”

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria also stated that Buhari would be re-elected in 2019.

“He (Buhari) needs time to instil that culture different from what we have learnt government is all about,.

“Let’s be honest, most young people of our generation grew up to know only the PDP system, which is and was only about money.

“Buhari did not need federal funds to clinch his re-election, his supporters would be happy to sell their possessions for his re-election,” he said.
