2019: Presidential aspirant reminisces how Nigerians donated fund for Buhari’s 2015 campaigns2019

presidential aspirant under the Social Democratic Party, Femi Olufunmilade, has said it took the financial donations of Nigerians for Presidential Muhammadu Buhari to win 2015 presidential election.

Speaking at a press briefing where he declared his interest to contest against the president on Tuesday June 26, the former ally of the president said Buhari is too old and should go and rest.

He said the president only achieved a mission for the country: dislodging the Peoples Democratic Party which he said was leading the nation to destruction.

He likened Buhari to Moses who rescued Israelites from the of captivity in Egypt, but who never led them to the Promised Land.

The presidential hopeful promised to implement the report of National Confab organized by former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2014.

The Confab, which took place in Abuja proffered solutions to some of the perennial socio-cultural and economic challenges facing the nation, such as calls for restructuring, resource control, state police among others.

The report has since gathered dust at the Presidential Villa. Woes of the report are compounded by the fact that its initiator was defeated by incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari. Buhari has failed to consider the report.

Olufunmilade, Head of Department of International Relations and Strategic Studies at Igbinedion University, Okada, Edo State, said he met with the former president recently and promised to implement the report if elected president of the nation in 2019.
