Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his principal is yet to declare his intention for the 2019 election because he wants to prevent opponents from sabotaging the country.

In an interview with reporters during the weekend, Adesina said it will be a problem if Buhari “speaks too early”. He said the president will keep his intentions in his “chest” until the “time they can do less damage”.

Adesina claimed that many of those who asked Buhari not to run are doing so because they don’t have the “foggiest chance in hell to beat him”. “You know the peculiarity of Nigeria particularly now. If the president speaks too early, it’s a problem. There is a lot of sabotage in the country,” Adesina said. “You have also heard so many have said ‘don’t run.’

Because they know that if the president runs, other people should just run away because they don’t have the foggiest chance in hell to beat him. “So, they want to discourage him from running. Now, if he tells you ‘I’m going to run,’ and elections are still one year away, it gives them one year to sabotage the entire country from all fronts – politically, socially, economically – they would throw everything at him just to dissuade him from running.
