Bukola_OgunyemiA blogger, Bukola Ogunyemi, on Sunday wrote off the chances of a presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (Rtd) to add value to Nigeria as president of the country.

“I think he is a bit too old, I think his time has passed and he is of more use to Nigeria and Nigerians out of the presidency”, he said on Rubbin Minds.

Ogunyemi also described retired General Buhari’s declaration to run for the presidency in 2015 as “the worst kept secret in Nigeria’s political sphere”.

He however noted that Buhari’s candidacy may interest Nigerians if “he is teaming up with Governor Kayode Fayemi”, adding that “that will be a game changer. I think Nigeria needs someone like Fayemi”.

He further noted that Buhari “doesn’t have that vibrancy and is not in tune with what is happening in Nigeria”.

He also added that the Katsina born retired military man cum politician has not provided any reason different from what he has always provided in his last three attempts to serve Nigeria.

“I read his speech saying he intends to run for one last time and I was looking to hear one major reason he is presenting himself for the fourth time to serve Nigeria in that capacity and I still cant find it”, he said

The blogger maintained that Buhari’s declaration will test the internal democracy mechanism of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
