Some prominent leaders from the North have assembled to kick President Muhammad Buhari out of office come 2019.
The plan, according to elder statesman, Tanka Yakassai, is to produce a more credible and acceptable presidential candidate from the region.
Some members of the movement are mainly retired military chiefs, former governors, ex-ministers, senators and other top public office holders.
Speaking with the Sun about the movement and the plan to sack the current administration, Yakasai dismissed the claim that the entire North are for Buhari, saying, “I don’t know how you came to that conclusion, because other aspirants are expressing their wish to contest, people are still aspiring.
“The question of someone becoming a consensus candidate for a whole area of the north does not make sense.
“In addition, the rule of multi party democracy, there will never be a consensus candidate anywhere in Nigeria or anywhere multi party is practiced. Otherwise the merit of multi party democracy is defeated.
