The National Chairman of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Dr Victor Oye, said President Muhammadu Buhari was qualified to present himself for re-election.
Oye, in a statement to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, on Monday said as a Nigerian, Buhari had the constitutional right to seek another term in office.
“He is qualified, so, we have no problem with his declaration to run for second term,” he said.
Similarly, Chairman of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) in Anambra, Chief Bartho Igwedibia, said it was inalienable right of Buhari to seek re-election if he wished.
Igwedibia said only the Nigerian masses had the final say on who would preside over their affair.
He called for free and credible elections that would yield outcome reflecting the wishes of the people.
“The Constitution of Nigeria guarantees two terms for all elected political office holders; so Buhari is qualified to enjoy that right.
“There is nothing wrong with his declaration and there is nothing special about it, too.
“Nigerians are the people that have the ultimate say on who will lead them; every person, including myself, can declare but the people will speak with their votes.
“Nobody should stop anybody; my take is that voter awareness should be intensified and people should get their Permanent Voter Cards in order to speak with their votes.
“All we want is free and fair election where people can vote and their votes should count,” he said.
