Sen. Ita Enang, Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on National Assembly Matters (Senate) says among all the presidential candidates, President Buhari stands out as the best.
Enang urged Akwa Ibom people to vote for Buhari in the Feb. 16 presidential elections as there was no alternative candidate to the seat for now.
Enang said this in an interview with journalists at his country home in Ididep, Ibiono Ibom local government area of the state.
He expressed optimism that Buhari will garner enough votes to win the forthcoming election.
The presidential aide said the performance of Buhari for almost four years now had put him above all other presidential candidates, stressing that Buhari will win the election convincingly.
“From all indications, I have seen and weighed all the candidates, particularly the two candidates, President Muhammadu Buhari and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
“I have looked at the pedigree and manifesto of all of them, the records and the antecedents of each of them and concluded that there is no alternative to President Buhari,”Enang said.
The former lawmaker said that voting for Buhari would enable him to continue with his credible programmes, adding that on completion of his tenure, power would return to the southern part of the country.
“And if we elect him, he will do only one term and power will return to the South, to go to either the South West or the South East,” he said.
According to him, If former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar were to be elected, it will be difficult to get him committed to a single term, adding that he has refused to be committed on whether he would do one term or not.
On the health of the President, Enang said Buhari has become younger and healthier than when he was first sworn in to office in 2015, stressing that his health has been renewed by the providence of God.
“I am sure you are aware that the health of the president is no more an issue. By God’s grace, his health is being renewed like eagle.
He gets younger and stronger as he ages and am sure you know that Buhari looks younger now more than when he was first sworn in, “ he said.
