A former Military Governor of Lagos State, retired General Buba Marwa, has said all those eyeing to occupy Aso Rock Presidential Villa should wait till 2023, as President Muhammadu Buhari would be returned to power in 2019.
Marwa made the declaration while fielding questions from Journalists on Thursday in Yola, Adamawa State.
Marwa, who is the Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee on Drugs, said he was confident President Buhari would defeat other presidential candidates in the 2019 election.
He said: “Buba Marwa Organization is the first to organise rally in support of President Buhari in 2016 because Buhari has done very well in three areas of economy, security and fight against corruption.
“He will return for the second time by the grace of God.
“And for that, I have no doubt all those vying for Aso Villa should wait till 2023.”
Among those seeking to replace Buhari in 2019 is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.
On the recent security situation in the country, Marwa said the Army and other security agencies had done excellently well and need more support and encouragement from the general public.
On illicit drugs, Marwa said the committee he was chairing had made several contacts and efforts to control the importation, consumption and dealing in such drugs and the trafficker.
