- APC chieftain, Charles Udo Udeogaranya, says Nigerians are demanding for more from President Buhari
- Udeogaranya suggests that it would be better for a young Nigerian to take over the leadership of the country in 2019
- The APC chieftain states that restructuring is not the solution to Nigeria’s problem
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Charles Udo Udeogaranya, has suggested that President Muhammadu Buhari should hand over power to a younger candidate in 2019.
Charles Udo Udeogaranya made the suggestion in an interview with the Sun published on Sunday, July 2.
The politician said though president Buhari had given his best, the fact that Nigerians are demanding for more might require the president to hand over to a much younger candidate.
He said:“If you seek the opinion of majority of Nigerians, President Buhari has given his best, but Nigerians are clamouring for more. President Buhari had said himself that he would have wished the Presidency came to him at a younger age.
"In other words, the President is saying, ‘it’s over as I am concerned in delivering the kind of quality leadership that Nigerians are yearning for.
"This is my personal interpretation and I am not trying to impose it on him. But my import from it is that a young Nigerian should take over the leadership of the country. So, one can say that the opinion of the national chairman of our great party is not a popular opinion among Nigerians."
Reacting to the call for restructuring of the country, Udeogaranya said restructuring was not the solution to Nigeria’s problem.

He noted that the problems of the country had more to do with the Nigerian leaders than the current structure or system of government being practiced.
Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress (APC) says President Muhammadu Buhari is fast recovering from his illness contrary to allegations that he is on life support.
The national chairman of the party, John Odigie-Oyegun, gave the assurance in Abuja on Friday, June 30, while speaking with newsmen at the end of a meeting between the party`s national working committee (NWC) and state governors elected on the party’s platform.
