Published

A high powered tension pervaded the Aso Rock Villa few hours after the decampment of senators and some members of the house of Representative contrary to the façade sold to Nigerians about the prsident wishing the decamp es well in their sojourn to a new party.

Daily Watch Sources in the villa confirmed that the President Mohammadu Buhari was so miffed with the shift by several Senators and members of the house pf representatives and threats of several others that he almost dropped the idea of a 2nd term pursuit by telling Nigerians he is opting out as a result of his health and age.

Daily Watch investigations confirmed that the president and his wife had both agreed to toe that line of honor having realized the dismal decline in his popularity base and the possibility of a defeat staring him in the face if he goes ahead with the gamble of 2019.

According to Daily Watch Sources, the President was totally disorganized and pissed with the strange decampment in spite of the overwhelming assurances given by the APC top hierarchy that the situation was under control and the fervent assurance of his Political Caucus and Cabal in the seat of Power here in Abuja.

Daily Watch confirmed that it took the suave intelligence and unrivaled Pressure of members of the Cabal,Babagana Kingibe (Head of the Buhari Political Caucus) and several others in the seat of Power to stop the President from towing the line of honor like Mandala by opting out of the 2019 elections following the tsunami that saw Senators and Res members vacating the APC for the PDP.

The President was said to have mellowed down after several hours of assurances,plea and convincing by his close associates that the move by the Reps members and senators does not affect his Political base as the masses were still solidly behind him and tht they too would prove it in the days ahead with tenable evidences among the populace of Nigeria.

Daily Watch findings confirmed that the plot by Buhari to drop his 2nd term bid received overwhelming support of the wife who who said to have totally supported the idea but was shocked on the recanting of her husband following unrivaled and uncommon pressure mounted on the President by the Cabal and other very close associates who were able to convince him against that line of action by creating a picture of Political invisibility which gave the almost demoralized President some form of invigoration again.

Daily Watch Attempts to reach out to the President Spokes men on the reported threat by the President to jettison his 2nd bid on the grounds of health and age after the decampment of several APC stalwarts was not possible as all text messages to their numbers were not responded to

says Burkina Faso’s leader, Capt. Ibrahim Traoré.

“”Our people have irrevocably turned their back on ECOWAS,” Niger’s General Abdourahamane Tiani says.
