The Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical Province (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Emmanuel Chukwuma, has said the reelection bid of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 will lead to a “disastrous end” for him.
Bishop Chukwuma said this in Enugu shortly after a service of songs in honour of late Rev. Canon Chris Nwezi at St. John’s Anglican Church, Idaw River.
He said the first term tenure had not benefitted Nigerians but a few people who are now clamouring for his reelection.
He said he had already told Buhari not to bother about seeking reelection.
Chukwuma told newsmen: “I want to let you know that President Buhari declaring or not declaring is not anything to be feared.
“It is not anything that is new.
“Rather, he should know that it will lead to his disastrous end should he dare to re-contest.
“I have told him: he should go and rest.
“He has expired.
“All those yearning for him to continue are the people benefiting from him.
“He has not done anything to warrant his coming back to office.
“The way things are, we need a new wine in a new wine skin.
“I am against people who are coming out to perpetuate sufferings of the people and Buhari has shown that he cannot solve our problems.
“We need good governance.
“It does not matter the party you belong.
“All the people yearning to become president have all expired.
“They have no new thing to offer and we cannot continue to perpetuate failure and evil.”
