A former Military Administrator of Akwa Ibom State, Colonel Yakubu Bako, retd, has revealed what President Muhammadu Buhari will do if he loses the 2019 presidential election.
Col. Bako, who was in charge of Akwa Ibom from December 1993 to August 1996, told Sun that he had no fear that if Buhari loses the election, there might be trouble in Nigeria.
He, however, added that things would be calmer if Buhari hurriedly accepts defeat, adding that with his supporters, there might be trouble if he fails to do so.
According to him, “Look Buhari, himself as a person, if he loses the election, he would pack and go back to Daura.
“Buhari as a person would not shed the blood of a chicken to win election. He would not want to shed the blood of an individual to win election. No!
“Like what happened in 2015, if 2019 comes out and he sees he didn’t win the elections and he says ‘yes I have accepted this result,’ there would not be trouble.
“Yes, like we had in 2015. If Jonathan had not come out hurriedly to accept the results of the elections, there might have been trouble in some parts of Nigeria.
“My take, therefore, is that the same should apply in 2019. Whosoever loses in the elections should make haste to concede defeat like what we had in 2015.”
