The source disclosed that the president is very anxious about the rising tones of Nigerians asking him not to contest for 2019 presidential election and would want to ask the governors not to allow the reconciliation process of the party on the hands of Tinubu alone but to contribute to enable the party have a soft landing during the 2019 elections.

Last Saturday, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu announced that Buhari lost two members of his extended family in quick succession.
