According to him, ''I think Nigerians should not be taken for granted. President Buhari should not push Nigeria citizens beyond limit by coming out again. If he does, he will only dent his image of integrity built over the years. He will be helping this country not to contest than putting himself forward again.

''I was one of those who fervently prayed to God to heal our president and bring him back to office to complete his tenure.

''Thank God, he is back. So, President Buhari should just finish his term; go back home and rest after 2019. I think it is unthinkable for him to seek for another four years in office going by his state of health''.
