National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has declared that the health of President Muhammadu Buhari is currently the most important issue to the party.
The party chairman spoke on Monday in Abuja while addressing the media on the midterm scorecard of the APC led administration.
He made it clear that the party isn’t considering any candidate for the 2019 election for now but the party is major concerned about the President’s health.
“Why build bridges if there is no river to cross? Why don’t you wait until you come across a river then you build a bridge. With all due respect , for what it stands for, what is critical today is that our prayer is our good Lord will restore the president to robust, good health; that is the first thing. But the prime thing that he will be considering today isn’t to think of 2019. It is to have his health fully restored and I am sure he will give anything just to have his health restored. Let’s terminate it at that point; when 2019 comes we will deal with the issues that arise”.
He insisted that he and the president are in good terms, speaking against the frosty affair between the presidency and the party leadership.
“I have done a lot of things with the president in the past. I have known him from the civil service days; I have known him from the military head of state days. I was one of his close aides. So let them enjoy themselves and pose for photograph. That isn’t the issue. The issue is that we communicate and the relationship is cordial”.
