Senator Ndume noted that there was nothing wrong in Buhari wanting to pick his successor.
A Nigerian senator has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari has the right to choose his successor.
A former Senate Minority leader and the Director- General of Rotimi Amaechi Presidential Campaign Organisation, Senator Ali Ndume, APC, Borno South made the statement in a recent interview with Vanguard.
He said the move by President Buhari is also democratic.
Speaking with Vanguard, Senator Ndume who noted that there was nothing wrong in Buhari wanting to pick his successor, said that there is no President that will not name his successor or be interested in who succeeds him after office.
Ndume who said that former President of the United States of America, USA, Barack Obama picked interest in his Vice, Joe Biden to succeed him and he worked very hard to support Biden, said that there was nothing wrong with the position of President Buhari on the issue.
“The call by President Buhari that he should be allowed to pick his successor is not out of place, it is democratic and he was democratic about it.
There is no President that will not name his successor. I would have been disappointed if the President had left the issue open without being interested in who should succeed him.
As he said, the Governors were allowed to name their successors, the President should be allowed to do same. There is nothing out of place for the President to do that.”
