Minister distributes Buhari’s campaign caps at FEC meeting

Juliana Taiwo-Obalonye, Abuja

Twenty-four hours after former President Olusegun Obasanjo, in an 18-page statement asked President Muhammadu Buhari not to seek re-election in 2019, Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, on Wednesday, attended the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting with a bag full of President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election campaign face caps.

The inscription on the cap read, “Continuity ’19: Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo”.

Adebayo, who is also the South West Campaign Coordinator, came to distribute to the ministers in attendance.

Shittu, who is aspiring to contest the governorship election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State, wore his own face cap, while his other colleagues in the cabinet were expected to put on theirs.

Shortly before the commencement of the meeting presided over by the President at the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the minister handed over the bag to the council’s secretariat staff.

The workers are the ones saddled with the responsibility of distributing council documents and other items to members.

Shittu, who was decked in a pair of suit, adorned his own blue cap.

Shittu had on Saturday inaugurated the South West Zonal Office of Buhari/Osinbajo Campaign Organisation in Ibadan, Oyo State.

The face caps he distributed at the council meeting were said to be the souvenirs he produced for the Ibadan event.

The minister is having running battles with his state governor, Abiola Ajimobi, is not leaving any stone unturned to ensure that President Buhari is re-elected.

    i wonder why Nigerians have short memories and would not learn from history. who is really behind this move to push buhari into indelible shame by urging him to go for 2019 election that is axiomatic that buhari will fail convincingly. i thought that the history of the man the cap fits that played during abacha vis-a – vis mr kanus millions march should serve as an eye opener to our politicians with inordinate ambitions, but, the reverse is the case.
    i personally advice mr president to ignore these charlatans and thiefly ministers and hear the voice of dissent and quietly go home to Daura and rest after this tenure if he is the real man of integrity nigerians bestowed on him. coming out for 2019 is nothing but political suicide and erasing of all the honors you have glamoured to acquire. your children and children children will ask you after the election, daddy why did you do yourself this harm. if not ask jonathan. the sycophant around you may have sweet melodies that can push you but i tell you mr president, that it is this same sycophants that will be the first to call you all sorts names when you fail and they will abandon you in a second after the election and your unarguable failures. they are stealing money here and there that was why they are routing for your second tenure so as to cover up their loots. do not believe that they love you so much. it is for their personal gains. therefore, mr president nigeria and africa want you to be another mandela and you would have nothing to lose.
