Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawal, seems to have raised some controversy by asserting that President Muhammadu Buhari will remain in power till 2023.
Lawal said this in a chat with State House correspondents after a closed door meeting with Buhari in Abuja, on Friday, October 27.
His words: “It important that we continue to support the President and his administration and as a group, across the nation, this is what we will continue to do.
“We will continue to identify with and support all the programmes that this administration has set forward.
“And l believe that we have every justification to be happy because, the President campaigned on three major pillars of anti-corruption, fighting the insecurity across the country and revitalizing the economy of Nigeria.
“It has been a very, very good journey so far and also believes that Mr. President and Nigerians have a future beyond 2019. What he has started, by the grace of God, he should be able to complete, up to 2023.
“I also believe that the future is bright and by the grace of God, by 2019, we would have achieved so much in this administration and Mr President will have no option but continue the good work he has started”, he said.
