“However, it is President Buhari’s prerogative and that of his party to decide on whether to re-contest or not”, the statement read.

Obasanjo, had in a lengthy  letter called on President Buhari to forget about contesting for a second term come 2019 presidential election. That Buhari should honourably resign now and go back to his home to rest.
